I was really shocked to see all the good reviews for a car that was nothing but trouble for me. It recently broke down on me and I had to get rid of it. When I bought it the only thing was wrong with it was the radiator and a gas leak, I had many other problems, I had to replace the battery, the tires(more than 10x), the starter, the water pump, the cylinder, and the spark plugs. The spark plugs went out and stripped my cylinders in my engine, with the motor mounts going bad as well. It was like a domino effect in 2 weeks. The brake line, motor mounts,and then finally the spark plugs. It was a complete and total piece of crap and right before it broke down, there was acceleration on its own.
Comfy, Easy to drive, gas mileage.
Build it better, I do not suggest that you buy this car. DO NOT buy this car, I know people who have had nothing but problems. She bought hers a couple months back and it's making the same noise in the engine that mine did right before mine broke down completely.
Fun little car to drive-gets great gas
mileage. Easy to handle and great
first car. Got mine a couple days
after Christmas & was my first car.
Wasnt my first choice, but once I
started driving it, I instantly took a
liking to it.
I purchased my 99 Neon in August of 99.
I have had no real problems with it. It
is very small and is a tight fit for
more than 2 in the back. I am concerned
with its saftey and will trade if off
soon. She has 81k miles and is still
running ok. I do keep my oil changed
and the only thing I have had to put on
it is tires. There is an odd whistle
comming from under the hood, but I
think its a belt.
