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


The car cost me $11,500 about $6 grand LESS than a Honda Civic! OK it doesn't hold it's value like a Honda...picky, picky. So far the car has been great, but the last review scared me(electrical short at 50K miles). Dodge has a nasty habit of not taking care of customer problems after warranty over and not fixing them on a timely basis. I say this because I also own a 98 Neon Sport(150HP engine). The early Neons (first 3 model years especially) had engine head gasket oil leaks due to imperfection in metal, not the gasket. Too many customers had to pay $600 to over $1000 to get it fixed. Dodge needs to fix design flaws at no charge or it's going to lose customers like me.

Best Features

Handling, acceleration with manual tran, roominess, radio/CD, styling.

Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better, but ain't bad unless you have a lead foot on the gas pedal.
