1997 Plymouth Neon Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

I really enjoy driving my 1997 Plymouth Neon around. I call it my Toy because I have so much fun with it. The light blue paint on the Plymouth is far superior to the light blue on the Dodge models, it does not chip at all. For a small car it is a very comfortable ride, yes it can be noisy but definitly on of the more comfortable rides is the compact category.


Best Features

For me I really enjoy and appreciate the sportscar driveability.

Review

Be careful with this car. It looks
like fun to begin with, but we had
nothing but problems since day one.
It may have just been our car, and the
way the previous owners cared for the
car, but we found that owning the car
cost us more than buying a new one.
Again, if you chose this car, buyer
beware!

Review

What else is there to say...

This is one in a series of 6 neons that
I have been involved in purchasing. We
have only retired two of them. One was
sold and the other was totaled. All of
the other 4 are still on the road. Two
of these are lightly driven, but the
other two have been abused on a daily
basis and still continue to operate
with an absolute bare minimum of
operating expenses. One now has
290,000 and the other is at 317,000
miles. The latter only cost around
$200 last year for all maintenance
(scheduled service included in this
cost). Not too bad for 65,000 miles on
the road...


Best Features

reliability and ease of personal service. Convenient accessory placement and comfortable fit.


Worst Features

Better noise dampening. electrical/charging system needs larger guage wires.

1997 Plymouth Neon Sedan Highline 4dr Sedan


Review

This car has done it all for me. I
have driven it from NJ to CA, from CA
to AZ, CO, Mexico and back. The
mileage and comfort is amazing. And
the handling is awesome. I have taken
it offroad in the desert.

The fold down seats allow me to haul
8ft boards of lumber home without a
problem. Some jerks at the lumberyard
dind't want to beleive that it would
fit. What would be the point of their
SUVs in that case?

I caught someone trying to break into
my car by throwing a large rock at the
glass. It bounced off with a small
scratch!

I not had to do more than routine
maintanence. (Oil, Filter, Tire
Rotation, etc.)


Best Features

Mileage Reliability Comfort Inside Small Size outside


Worst Features

Battery died once, I think the non- factory CD changer was not connected correctly. I would like cruise control for longer trips.
