Buyer Beware
By NeonPOOR on


1996 Dodge Neon Highline 4dr Sedan


This car is a money pit. I used to love
it...before two head gaskets, The
latest todat to the tune of 1,000
dollars. Two weeks ago I put in $400.
As I bought this as a year old
rental...I have to wonder what they di
to it. AC has been repaired. New brake
system (FYI the breaks squeal on all
models for this year) Can't get the
dome light to turn off. Just found out
that the uneven tire wear is a problem
many others have had. A new set of
tires every year because of inside
wear. Ticking sound in dash. Stopping
in intersections (Had to put in a new
cable from the battery to alternator to
solve that problem.)

Best Features

Attractive outer package, Interior space, visability

Worst Features

Chrysler needs to own up to the design defect for the headgasket. No more Chryslers for me. Saw on the net that a class action suit has been filed against them for this car. I am keeping my repair bills in the hopes of being reimbursed. It should have been recalled.
