2000 Dodge Neon Highline 4dr Sedan


Review

The only problem we had was the trunk
rust at the pinch-welds. Was replaced
under warranty. The oddball tire size
and then charge $200 CDN per tire is
ridiculous. Winter traction was
horrid. I remedied this and used a
slightly over-sized tire in the
summer time (nice performance tire on
new set of rims) and a separate set of
tires for the winters. The car has
been quite reliable. Never stranded us
and even 3 years later, all the
original bulbs are functioning
perfectly. The car is the best powered
in it's class for it's year. The Neon
has the largest sunroof of just about
any car I've seen. The 3spd tranny was
sluggish at certain speeds.


Best Features

- Sunroof - Signal DRL - Big Trunk - Fold down rear seats - Power Heated mirrors


Worst Features

- replace tranny (which they did) - keep fold-away mirros (which they did not) - Offer a 2dr/hatch - better placement of CD buttons (keep hitting them if I grabbed something stored in the area just before it) - Slightly better seats

Review

I have had my Neon over 4 years and
have only had to replace the brakes.
The car is extremely reliable and has
been across the country several
times. I have to say that my Neon
looks as good as it did when it came
off the showroom floor -- inside and
out. That comes from quality
construction and careful care. I live
in Texas -- 100+ summers -- and the
a/c usually needs to be turned down
because it works so well. Excellent
car overall!


Best Features

Super Cold A/C, Great stock stereo and Fun to Drive


Worst Features

Better insulation to reduce road noise

Review

I've had a pretty decent experience
with my car so far. I'm already up to
97K miles on it. The horn has shorted
out several times. Started going
through spark plugs fairly quickly
after 70K. This car has two converters
on it... Most cars only have one. I
found this out the hard way. One
converter is over $500 for just the
part. When one goes out, the other one
does to so expect to pay about $800
there. The AC also went out around 90K
miles and it didn't need just a
recharge...Other than that I haven't
had any major problems.


Best Features

Good gas mileage. Even after putting an air intake and exhaust on it.


Worst Features

The horn needs to be improved. The power window switches in the front seem to stick sometimes. Seats are not very comfortable for longer trips. Only the front windows are power.

Review

This is our second Neon and, for the
price, it's worth the investment. You
get a lot of car for the money when
compared to what Honda, Toyota and
Nissan has to offer. The incentives and
rebates make Neon the top choice in my
book. I've found that dealing with a 5-
Star dealer is a definate plus.


Best Features

Fun to drive, good sound system, good looks, reliable.


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better. Noisy. Seats could be more comfortable.

Review

it rides comfortably with good lumbar
support and with a fairly comfortable
backseat ride.

Problems are the front seat space if you
are very small people it's fine but if
you are on the large side you are
constatnly bumping shoulders.

The bars between the doors and
windshiled cause a blind spot and are
hazardous.

Interior front and back windows are
difficult to clean.

Gas mileage for city driving is about 12
miles to the gallon but highway goes up
to about 35.

Mopar products are not dependable as in
3 batteries in 3 years.

Minimal amounts of moisture in the air
will cause the brakes to squeal, another
Mopar product.

Poor weatherstriping


Best Features

Cruise Control is user friendly.


Worst Features

Get rid of blindspots Weatherstrip correctly and fully not partially as they do now. Better city gas mileage
