1995 Dodge Neon Sport 4dr Sedan


Review

This car is a TURD. . . Shakes Rattles
& Rolls along the road. I bought it
for basic trans for work. Paid 2K for
it with 47K miles. Every two weeks I
have to add 2-3 quarts of oil, it's
quite embarassing. Somehow this car
manages to start & drive me at anytime
anywhere. I've driven this car hard
for 8 months & 20K miles and It's been
pretty reliable.


Best Features

Ummm. . . what?


Worst Features

This car needs to be redone from head to toe. Quality needs to be improved? I believe the Honda Civic & Toyota Corolla have set the benchmark. When the Neon becomes what those vehicles are, they will have a winner on their hands.

Review

well, I bought this car with 103000
miles, big mistake. I should have not
gotten american I4 with that manys on
it. It was OK at first. Then one thing
happened after another. First had to
replace 2 O2 sensors ($150 each). Then
back drums went out($250). then all 3
engine mounts went out ($450 all
replaced). I heard from a Dealer's
parts department "Neons don't last
after 100,000 miles. Stupidest car
dodge has made in a long time." so now
I think I'm goin to go get what seems
the best I4 out there, Honda Civc


Best Features

none really.


Worst Features

figure out what's goin on with everything failing so people have more respect for the dodge name. after all it was an american name.

Review

The dodge neon was designed to be a
cheap car and it is. I have paid for
the thing numerous times in repairs,
and I find it spending more time on
jack stands than on the road.
Unfortunately I have learned alot
about cars since I could never keep
this thing running. If you were to
consider a neon I would say at least
2000 or new, that is when Dodge
finally got their act together.
Overall this car is garbage and I
would never recommend this thing to
anyone unless you want lots of
mechanical experience.


Best Features

Sporty, fun to drive, and loads of aftermarket performance parts


Worst Features

EVERYTHING

Review

Having purchased my '95 Neon with only
1200 miles on it made me feel like I
was buying it new. But this ended about
2 years later, when the $5500 bills for
transmission repair/replacement began
to pile up. I recently put an
additional $500 in repairs into the
car, but it didn't help my "lack of
acceleration" problem.

The brakes are extremely loud and give
way too easily. The rear speakers
haven't worked since 1998. I will never
buy another Neon.


Best Features

-The compact size -The comfortable seats, especially considering their small size -The ease of locating and reading all the gauges


Worst Features

-The somewhat "plastic" feel of parts of the interior -The brakes need a serious makeover, even on the newer models -Transmission reliability

Review

Head gasket went after 38K, A/C
repaired in 3rd year, electrical
problems with signal lights, then
radio. Paint pealing off roof and
both wiper arms had paint peeling and
they both have broken. On the highway
the windows scream. Weather stripping
around doors and trunk were coming
off. Piece of crap!


Best Features

I found it had good pick up and gas mileage when I first bought it.


Worst Features

Dodge tucks aren't bad but the rest is beyond repair.
