Not so hot Neon
By carrie on


1998 Dodge Neon R/T 2dr Coupe


Head gasket problems seem to
be 'normal' for this car; ours had to
be replaced around 35,000 miles (and
the head remilled to boot). No recall
for this problem, but Chrysler did kick
some cash back to the dealership for
repairs after a considerable amount of
complaining. Also, trunk has always
leaked -- friends of mine had the same
problems with their Neons. After five
years of misc. mechanical problems, I'm
happy to be getting rid of it!

Best Features

Handles well. Comfortable to drive.

Worst Features

Head gaskets, trunk gaskets, and oddly enough, the car doesn't seem to defrost well -- like the air blows in the wrong spot to be effective. Wipers ice up in winter, I get sick of beating on them!
