don't get one even if it's given to you!

1996 Dodge Neon Sport 4dr Sedan


We were happy at first- the style, cabin
capacity, and mileage are all good.
That was the honeymoon period. Then, the
head gasket had to be replaced and the air
conditioner repeatedly recharged. At 50,000
miles the engine started crapping out-
consuming oil and the engine needed to be
replaced- the cost would have "totaled" the
car. Had to fill it with a quart of oil once a
week. Speedometer worked only when it felt
like it... wiring in stereo was bad and the
right-passenger-side speaker set on fire.
Needed new tires at only about 30,000 miles.
Charged A/C a week and a half before we
traded it in, and was out of fluid the day we
turned it in.

Best Features

design is good, but form most certainly did not follow function in this case. Pretty, but in a superficial supermodel kind of way.

Worst Features

Either stop making them or actually design them with working parts and hike up the price a grand or two.
