2002 Acr. — It was a fun little car to drive. It came with the adjustable suspension which was either moderately comfortable or extremely hard. Cornered very well and even made it through a couple Atlanta "blizzards" with no problems. Not the safest car out there and it was "very loud." Overall I wish they'd made more of this trim.

Well Rounded Econo Car That Has Some Pep — performance - comes with upgrades from the factory, easy to mod, and lots of aftermarket. Handles great, brakes are good, just needs a bit more pep. build quaility - i wont lie, it is a neon, but if you know its flaws and address them properly, these cars will last a long time. appearance - nice lines added from the body kit, agressive open front bumper to give it a sporty look. Dual exhaust with chrome tips for an added sophisticated look. cost of ownership - one of the cheapest cars to own and maintain. follow the service manual and you wont have hardly any issues fun factor - since its the r/t its ready to go the track and have fun, especially if you like autocross. even spirited driving is a blast on the highway.

Neon Ftw! — Fast accelarating, excellent handling and very firm braking. Very good gas mileage - 35mpg! Sporty looking exterior and cosy interior! Cost of ownership is really low since it is an American vehicle. Does not have any major mehcanical problems. The car is really fun to drive and it has a lot of room for all your friends.

Great Car That Will Last But Also Has Issues Cuz Its A Dodge — Overall this car is decent. The performance is alright, it could get up and go more and Ive had issues with the tranny. Its built to withstand a lot of different weather..trust me, I know. The appearance I love and have made it a nice car even though its mostly stock :P.

Excellent Inexpensive Starting Or Racing Car. — Have only had it for a few years, but it's a great car. Hasn't needed work other than basic maintenance and a new battery. Drives pretty much like any other sports car, great acceleration, great braking, excellent handling. Only downside is it only gets about 20ish mpg, which doesn't seem right to me. Could have a couple aftermarket parts, I haven't bothered to check. Was well worth the $6000 I paid for it used at I think 70k miles.
