1998 Dodge Neon R/T 2dr Coupe


Neon R/T's are fun to drive; horrible
to maintain. The sunroof broke (in
the open position) twice under
warranty, and again out of the
warranty (I refuse to fix it).
Transmission broke 10,000 miles past
warranty due to "defective gasket."
Head gasket blew at 65,000.
Currently, mine overheats, regardless
of what the outside temperature, due
to what my mechanic describes as "poor
engineering." Also, one window rolls
down faster than the other. (??)

Best Features

Gas mileage!! Consistently 36+. Also, peppy performance, strong brakes, and more than adequate handeling.

Worst Features

This car needs a better warranty, and a little better build quality. If mechanically inept, avoid this car. Otherwise, it's a decent value.
