2002 Dodge Neon Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Less than 4 years after purchase this car has been nothing but problems. I just recently had a head gasket replaced, the head itself, and now the solenoid pack in the transmission. Thankfully all covered under warranty. Brakes went-cost $800, battery, tires. I take extremely good care of this car. I always have the oil changed every 3000 miles, spark plugs done, tires rotated, alignment checked, etc. This car has cost me more for being brand new than my 1990 Toyota(bought it in 1995) that I had for 7 years and way over 100,000 miles ever did.


Best Features

Still the CD player


Worst Features

The whole car. I have heard many many people tell me you should have never bought a Neon, they are known to be crap.

2002 Dodge Neon Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car as a used fleet
vehicle according to carfax. It had
35k on it and I just paid $5500! I've
driven the car for about 10k and
haven't had the slightest problem. Had
a '95 neon up to 140,000 miles without
any problems. Cheap, reliable, fun to
drive. What could be better?


Best Features

Exterior styling, easily modified and serviceable.


Worst Features

More power, but I guess that's what the SRT-4 is for!

2002 Dodge Neon Sedan R/T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Only a few problems. It was a month before
a bad clutch cyl went bad, fixed ok since.
Radio went bad around 20,000. Reverse
back up sensor went bat around 30,000.


Best Features

I've had a great time with this car. I'm 36 yeas old and still a kid. I've done some bolt on mods like intake, exaust, springs, and so on. Great car and cheap fun. The 87 12 sec. shelby charger sits in the garage next to it.


Worst Features

Thicker carpet, update the dated shifter and transmission bushings.

2002 Dodge Neon Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Remarkably roomy with very good seats
Great handling, and the 4 speed trans
makes the car feel so much better than
earlier ones I drove as a rental. Now
has 27000 miles and no hint of squeak or
rattle, except for squeaky brakes which
I hear is common problem with Neons.
NOTE: I bought mine one year old--SE
so has power wind/lk/mirrors--for just
$8,600. Nearly new Neons seem to have
terrible resale value, so perfect cars
to buy used. Unless you are even
fussier than I am, buy one used and save


Best Features

Very good seats, exterior style, handling is almost sporty


Worst Features

Seems as if should get better gas mileage--for such a small car
