Review of the 2000 Plymouth Neon

  • Even though it's been redesigned, the Neon retains strengths such as its spunky attitude and weaknesses such as a lack of powertrain refinement - - the optional automatic tranny is still a primitive three-speed unit.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Large interior, competent handling, dirt-cheap.

  • Cons

    Peppy DOHC engine gone, low roofline, no more coupe.

  • What's New for 2000

    Side-impact airbags and leather seats are now available in Plymouth's economy car. If you've got a hankering for the Plymouth nameplate, act fast; as of 2002 Plymouth will be closing shop and subsuming its identity to the gods of DaimlerChrysler.

Loved my first car

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan

My dad got my first car, 2000 Plymouth Neon, with 44k for $3500 in 2010. The only major problem I ever encountered was the radiator went out at about 60k (which is VERY typical). I also had the tie rod end snap, but that was only because when the original owner replaced it they put the wrong part on. Overall I loved this car, i never worried about it breaking down and it got great mpg. Very reliable and worth the money. Unfortunately it was wrecked in the front end when someone hit me in a truck head on and drove off, i only had state minimum so was unable to fix the car. :( was very sad to see it go. I now drive a 2000 pt cruiser (which i also enjoy driving)




Best car i've ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan

Owned and driven for about 7 years; average daily commute of 70 miles. Purchased at 60,000 miles; now at 163,000 and going strong. It's had a chronic oil leak since around 90,000 - tried to have a couple different mechanics chase it down, but it's deep in the engine and repair estimate was more than half the $4,000 I paid for the car. But it runs fine and I don't mind a little incontinence. Otherwise, it handles nice, always starts, and has been extremely low maintenance.




Great car for low cost

Vehicle: 2000 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan

Good-looking, comfortable car with great gas mileage. Almost steered clear of buying a Neon, not sure why, but thought they had a junky reputation until I researched the vehicle and found the 2000 year and beyond to have great consumer satisfaction. My daughter and I love this car for its price range. We have been very happy with ours.




Not the safest car

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan

I just received this car from my parents and I absolutely dislike it. When driving it, I can never feel comfortable because it does not feel like a safe car at all. The vehicle is thrown all over the road and has no power while going uphill. On the other hand the gas mileage is pretty fair, and the sound is alright. Over all I believe there are more downs than ups for this car and I would not recommend it if you are looking for a safe car.

It is a great car. I had very little problems with it. I would buy another one. Great in the snow.




As much car as one

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan

I commute 70 miles each day, and this car can make it through an entire week without a refill (auto trans). Bought in '04 at 60K miles; 120K thru '08. Accelerates well enough to get into the flow of traffic on short on-ramps. Decent steering response. The budget sound system has some kick, which is needed at speeds over 35 mph because the cab is quite noisy. CD player is moody with normal discs and dislikes CD- R/RW media. Heater can be a furnace on the coldest of Midwest winter days, but only when the engine is pulling the car at 45+ mph. Surprising roominess on the driver side can accomodate even a larger man, though at the expense of anyone unfortunate enough to be sitting in the back.
