2000 Dodge Neon ES 4dr Sedan


The Neon SE is a significant step up
from the Geo it replaced. I drive it up
and down the eastern seaboard once a
month to visit my daughter, and the car
performs well on the highway. The cargo
room is immense for a car this size, and
it has a lot better pickup than other
cars I test drove. The biggest problem I
have is the gear ratios. I have a manual
tranny, and I find that I am constantly
looking for a 6th gear once I get to
around 70 on the highway. The engine
noise can be significant at higher
speeds, but the exceptional audio system
easily overcomes it. I've put 71.5K
miles on in 2.5 years, and the only
problems I've had were from accidents --
which were easily fixed.

Best Features

CD Changer, Cruise. Sunroof is a fun touch. ABS has saved my bacon on a couple of occasions.

Worst Features

Regear to better ratios. Road/engine noise needs to be reduced. Better lumbar support for long drives needed.
