What's up with those damned brakes????
By Andy Allison on


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


I really love my car & the way it
drives. It's quick, responsive, & fun.
The engine is perfect for this car...it
has just enough power for performance
without a great fuel cost, all of
which leaves me to wonder why Daimler
put such a flawed & NOISY brake system
on 'em. When I first start her up ,
regardless of environmental conditions,
as soon as I step on the brakes I hear
the most awful grinding/squealing sound
coming from the wheels. With every
subsequent stop the noise is reduced
bit until several miles into my journey
it stops all together. I have taken it
into the dealership just to be told
that the brakes are fine & there is
nothing that can be done. What's up
with that?

Best Features

handling, great a/c, fuel economy, interior comfort

Worst Features

The CD player is a joke...& those God awful brakes...I will most likely not buy another Chrysler product unless this issue is addressed & a recall is issued to fix it.
