nice to drive, but relability problems
By cbeck on


1996 Dodge Neon 4dr Sedan


Bought with 102000 miles. Fun to drive.
handles nice. Not too bad power wise
for a small car. Timing belt broke with
a 142000 miles. Bent up all the valves
in the head. Facing expensive repairs.
Had constant oil leaks from engine.
Transmission speed sensor went bad.
Trunk lock doesn't work. Ac quit
working. Car seemed to self destruct at
about 140,000.

Best Features

Good handling and pretty good fuel economy.

Worst Features

Mechanical reliability a real question. Car does not appear to be made to stand up in the long run. I wouldn't buy another one.
