Good little car
By kevin on


2004 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Just turned 76,000 miles and have had to do nothing other than change the oil. Car has had an occasional engine knock for a few seconds right after start up almost from the beginning. Was pretty concerned about that at first, but apparently some Neons just do that. Started using synthetic oil and it has pretty much stopped. I have had minor brake squealing issues like a lot of other people have reported here but it usually only lasts a minute or two when first taking off. AND I've still got over a quarter inch of pad on THE ORIGINAL brake pads! I'm hoping to make it to 100,000 miles on the original pads. Anyway, the car has been great. Reliable, fun to drive, great gas mileage. Buy one.

Best Features

Good power for 30+ mpg compact, trunk opener on key fob, good stereo for standard equipment, reliability - ALWAYS starts and still has original battery.

Worst Features

Power rear windows, standard anti-lock brakes, more sound dampening insulation.
