1997 Dodge Neon Sport 2dr Coupe


Off the lot was a piece of garbage.
Went through 2 yrs of arb. w/ Chrysler
eventually gave me a 75k warranty.
More time in shop than in driveway.
Clugging sound in suspension, head
gasket blew, oil leaked first 2 months,
seat cloth defective, bad accel. on
automatic, trunk never stay open,
blowout nearly killed me, funnel shaped
gas tank, bad gas mileage, "alloy
wheel" coating disintegrated, bad int.
noise, deposit problem in choke and
more. Got lucky, head gasket blew just
b4 warranty expired so I sold it. I'm
still paying for the bad karma from
it's sale.

Best Features

Net loss was only about $8,000

Worst Features

This car turned a faithful Chrysler buff to a Honda driver. If you own a Neon, esp. this make/model recommend "accidentally" leaving the keys in the ignition often and pray it gets stolen.
