1999 Dodge Neon Sport 4dr Sedan


Purchased new; my only vehicle since
1999. Excellent gas mileage, fun to
drive - faster than a 6 cylinder
Mustang. Very nimble around town and a
stable freeway cruiser. Of course, I
also have the 5 speed and DOHC.
Absolutely no problems and going on 80K
miles. For comparison, I drove an Audi
TT w/180hp and could not "feel" a
difference in acceleration or handling
(though I don't mean to suggest that
the Neon is a better car!). However,
the wind noise at 55mph or above is
awful. I plan on keeping this vehicle
to play with when I replace it with a
new Audi or Porsche, etc.

Best Features

5-speed manual, excellent engine and powertrain. Stock audio system is good, but much better with an aftermarket headunit. Tons of aftermarket upgrades and repair/parts are cheap. Drives very well in the snow.

Worst Features

Car is noisy at highway speeds. The paint could be peeled off with a fingernail. The pattern on the interior fabric is juvenile. Does it matter? The car was already redesigned in 2000! If you purchase a used Neon, you'll be improving it yourself from the Mopar catalogue.
