Good Car For Anyone Who Like Quick 4 Doors. — 2001 Dodge Neon R/T Overall pretty good for a 4 door 4 cylinder car. Its pretty quick off the line but kinda slow on the long run. Hoping to build it up a lil bit maybe put a Turbo in it. Not a Highway car!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Neons Get A Bad Wrap Due To The Type Of Clientile Who Own Them. If You Maintain It, It'll Last. — None. It's a great car. it has every option. Traction Control, Leather seats, Leather armrest, 5 speed manual transmission, woodgrain interior trim, heated mirrors, what more could someone want out of a Neon? It's a miniature loaded Chrysler 300 M.

I Would Recommend This Car To A Friend, But Not Mine Because You Never Sell A Car To A Friend — strong brakes good acceleration drives straight as an arrow hubcabs squeek, has needed new belts and water pump per mileage recommendation, needed a new alternater nice clean appearence in and out nice mileage of about 21 mpgs city, and little maintenance considering its age car is verry fun to drive on long winding roads, i just wish people would learn how to mave out of the way since passing on curves isnt recommended

Great First Car — The car isn't poorly built.. the only thing is paint. The Neon isn't the fastest but its fun to zip around in. It's pretty cheap not too expensive. I think this car is fun to drive. It could be worse.

Neon — Its a great first time car. I love it. After 30 its pretty quick. Its a blue-ish grey color I've only seen a handleful of the same color before. Gas mileage is great about 30 to a gallon when the oil is changed (every 3000 miles). The inside is pretty nice, I try to keep it very clean.

You Could Do A Lot Worse — This car was problem free for the first 100,000 miles, but now I'm having problems with corrosion killing parts of it little by little. I do live in Michigan, so that is a problem for a lot of cars. I think this generation is the best looking Neon; the first gen was a little small and the cars at the end of the second gen had an ugly Chrysler grill. Gas mileage isn't bad, but you won't get top performance out of the car either.

Kinda slow right now

Dodge Neon (stock) — This car handles great, takes almost any turn. Corners at very high speeds with little or no skid on the tires. Although it's kinda slow right now, considering it's un-modded. I'll fix that this summer tho. Car is built pretty solid unlike the last neon I had that would make a number of rattles and squeaks with the slightest bumps.
