Review of the 2001 Plymouth Neon

  • While fun to drive, the Neon lacks the polish and refinement found in other cars in the economy car segment.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Large interior, competent handling, attractive interior and exterior styling.

  • Cons

    Noisy engine, archaic three-speed automatic transmission, lack of feature content.

  • What's New for 2001

    Side-impact airbags and leather seats are now available in Plymouth's economy car. A center shoulder belt for the rear seat and an internal emergency trunk release further improve this Plymouth's safety consciousness. Both a Sun and Sound or a Value/Fun option group is available this year, each of which includes a sunroof. New interior and exterior options for the Neon pump some life in this fading brand, but 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.

2001 plymouth neon a lot

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

The little Plymouth Neon is fun to drive, feels very solid on the road, and in general has a well designed interior. For a compact car, it has remarkable interior room for 4 adults, and the back seats fold down to allow more truck originated space. It's probably the best little car I've ever driven.




A little about my car

Vehicle: 2001 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I purchased my 2001 used from a private seller. It had 120,000 miles and I only paid $500 for it. It was non - running the problem turned out to be bad battery terminals a easy fix for about $4. I love my car, its quick and sporty, handles well and seems to be well built and very reliable requiring only standard maintenance, something that most people simple forget or dont care to do. My only complaint is I wish the center console was bigger.




Still a good car!

Vehicle: 2001 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I purchased my 2001 Neon new in November 2000 and kept it for more than eight years. It was the stickshift LX model, and I added a Chrysler-brand cruise control. Other than routine maintenance, the only service it needed was when the engine computer went into an error state. The car was still driveable and I drove it to the dealership, which repaired it under the emissions warranty even though the car had over 60000 miles on it at the time. The only negative I have to say about the car is that it's a little too low-slung; very easy to scrape the front end on sloped driveways. I sold the car to my 16-yr old niece last year, and she loves it-- it's STILL a good car!




Good car

Vehicle: 2001 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I bought my 01 Neon a year and a half ago or so and I have loved it. My Neon was really basic, no power windows or other options but it was really reliable. I only replaced the battery and the tires on it so maintenance was low. I bought used but had regular service and it treated me well. A/C and heat worked perfectly. 2.0 liter gave it extra kick for a 4 cyl. Inside room was quite large for the size of the car, back seat spacious for compact car. I wrecked it and have to buy a new car but would get another Neon anytime.




Dependable car

Vehicle: 2001 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

We have used this car very much in the last 4 years. It has been a very dependable car.




275k & still rollin

Vehicle: 2001 Plymouth Neon Highline 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

This is the best car I've ever owned. We bought this car with 20k. it now has over 275k and no problems. This car was loaded. Side airbags, leather interior, the works. It really was a good value. We drive it daily from the Poconos to NYC. About 220 miles every day. I can't complain.
