2004 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


My wife's 04 SXT still has under 70,000 miles on it. Recently, the radiator blew. This sent transmission fluid into the engine, and coolant into the transmission. New radiator install, $350. Tranny rebuild $1,800. The transmission shop said, "We see this all the time." Dodge counts on you being a foolish American consumer, wrapped up in keeping up with the Jones'. My 92 Toyota Tercel with 170,000 miles on it is not a chick magnet but when a lady wants to go out for the night, rest assured I can get her there. Shame on you Dodge, I am sure this is only the start of Neon failures.

Best Features

That it's not mine.

Worst Features

Stay away from these cheap entry level crapmobiles, unless you think toilet paper is a long term investment.
