Used 2001 Plymouth Neon Sedan Consumer Reviews
I purchased my 2001 used from a private seller. It had 120,000 miles and I only paid $500 for it. It was non - running the problem turned out to be bad battery terminals a easy fix for about $4. I love my car, its quick and sporty, handles well and seems to be well built and very reliable requiring only standard maintenance, something that most people simple forget or dont care to do. My only complaint is I wish the center console was bigger.
The little Plymouth Neon is fun to drive, feels very solid on the road, and in general has a well designed interior. For a compact car, it has remarkable interior room for 4 adults, and the back seats fold down to allow more truck originated space. It's probably the best little car I've ever driven.
I bought my 01 Neon a year and a half ago or so and I have loved it. My Neon was really basic, no power windows or other options but it was really reliable. I only replaced the battery and the tires on it so maintenance was low. I bought used but had regular service and it treated me well. A/C and heat worked perfectly. 2.0 liter gave it extra kick for a 4 cyl. Inside room was quite large for the size of the car, back seat spacious for compact car. I wrecked it and have to buy a new car but would get another Neon anytime.
I purchased my 2001 Neon new in November 2000 and kept it for more than eight years. It was the stickshift LX model, and I added a Chrysler-brand cruise control. Other than routine maintenance, the only service it needed was when the engine computer went into an error state. The car was still driveable and I drove it to the dealership, which repaired it under the emissions warranty even though the car had over 60000 miles on it at the time. The only negative I have to say about the car is that it's a little too low-slung; very easy to scrape the front end on sloped driveways. I sold the car to my 16-yr old niece last year, and she loves it-- it's STILL a good car!
i bought this car as a daily driver and have since turned it in to a street machine i can easily beat cars that cost more and the have a higher hp rateing. it is a fun car and plan to own the new srt-4 also.
We have had no problems with this car at all. We have out grown it & have to trade it in. I would recommend this car to anyone starting out looking for a small payment.
I just bought a 2001 Plymouth neon today. It was an Automatic with only a rear window defroster as an option. It had 7200 miles and only cost $7500. My old car was a 99 Chervy prizm compared to it the noen has morepower and room. The interior parts look cheaper and the mileage is worse. Over all it feels good and was a great price. I am 6"3' 300 pounds and this car is easy to get into, and my shorter friends can drive it too. The interior is very roomy.
It is a decent little car but it is small. It has good fuel economy and is a good car for running around in. The interior is a darker color that is eadier to hide dirt and is pretty comfortable. The trunk is a good size either if your working out of it or if you want to put a couple of subwoofers in the back. The driving isn't to rough until you get to 100mph. If your looking for a reliable car this is it. It only has minor problems if you overd
My Neon is a very attractive, fun to drive car but it is too weak. And a compact car means nothing if you can't get good gas milage. And the car gives off a strong sulphuric smell that apparently no one can fix. Also it needs a 2-door model. A Civic is a better buy.
This is a great little car! I've had no problems with it (other than the typical brake pad change and new tires. I have 80,000 miles on it, so that's typical by this point. I had a Honda Civic SI previous to my Neon and it was TERRIBLE. I know people love Honda's, but this Plymouth Neon has been GREAT! Much better, at least in my experience, than my Honda. It feels solid, is comfortable and I've had no problems. Nothing has ever broken or snapped off; it's really been great.
