Never buy a Neon

1998 Dodge Neon Competition 2dr Coupe


I bought my Dodge Neon used with 40,000
miles. Now, at 70,000 miles, I cannot
wait to get it off my hands. The car
is poorly constructed. I've spent way
too much of my free time fixing the
car. Only 3 months ago I dropped
almost a grand on a tune-up. Now, the
head gasket is broken and I have engine
damage. Why did Dodge continue to make
this car when they knew the head
gaskets would go with so few miles?
It's a very expensive thing to fix.
For a little more money, I could have
had a reliable car and peace of mind.

Best Features

Small, quick, great gas mileage

Worst Features

Almost everything about this car leaves room for improvement, from the loud engine to the vibrations to the faulty head gaskets.
