Fun but big-time TROUBLE
By Paul on


1998 Dodge Neon R/T 4dr Sedan


When I found my Neon R/T, white with blue stripes, I thought I had gone to heaven. And there is no question that it is a fun car to drive when it runs but I have had nothing but trouble since I bought it. I have had the engine rebuilt twice and numerous things replaced, much more than I would expect even for a car that has over 150,000 miles on the odometer (I bought it at 94,000 miles). The trunk and right rear seat area leaks buckets of water in every rain or snow storm. If it wasn't for the consistent 30 mpg I would dump the car ASAP.

Best Features

It is fun to drive and gets great gas mileage.

Worst Features

Apparently blowing head gaskets was a significant problem for the early Neons.
