2003 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Despite taking great care of my car, I've had nothing but problems with it. My brakes have needed work on multiple occasions. I've had to call AAA three times in the past 6 months alone due to the car breaking down and leaving me stranded, all at less than 55,000 miles. Dodge acknowledges there are many issues with the car's radiator, but they won't do anything to help you, even when the problematic radiator fries your transmission and needs costly repair work. My Neon has eaten 2 radiators in the past month alone, and I've given up on it at this point. Avoid this car completely unless you want to spend $500+ each year on costly repairs that a reliable vehicle wouldn't even need.

Best Features

It's affordable for a college student who needs to watch their budget. The gas mileage and sound system are decent.

Worst Features

Well, they stopped making the vehicle - that should tell you something right there. This car is a great example as to why the American auto industry is doing so poorly.
