Great car with few problems
By drachen117 on


2005 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I have had the car for 5 and a half years, bought it brand new and put all 110,000 miles on it. first few favorite picks. engine was always a smooth running engine, and very very easy to work on. had to replace coolant lines and replace two sensors which did not require much work. and had to replace brakes which was also an easy task. But installed a performance air intake which was easy and cruise the the car and actually got 38 mpg! but average mileage is 32 - 33! During winter months drops to 28 - 29. So all and all, car had a few early problems and cheap components but was fun and cost efficient past five years!

Best Features

The 2.0 engine. Kicker audio system. and reliability.

Worst Features

Redo the rear drum brakes, squeal after 10,000 miles due to dust, and use better quality materials.

How much did it cost you to get the performance air intake?
