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.

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.

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

Pros

was freeeee

Cons

is slowww and no fun

45

Clyde! — meet clyde! he is automatic. NO FUN. slow basically. wasnt my choice of car, but for free, it was good. in good condition, hasnt had many problems. except the trunk freakin leaked water because the seal on the tail light was bad... yeah turns out it happens to a ton of neons but dodge is too lame to do a recall or whatever. so clyde smelled moldy for a while haaha. appearance is perfect, no dings or what not. "champagne" is not my color choice, but at least the dirt isnt noticeable LOL. gas mileage is mediocre... i like to put the pedal to the metal sometimes n im sure that doesnt help it any. i dont drive it thaaat often, so oil changes are far apart and i do it myself anyway. as for performance... brakes well, handling is a bit touchy but i dont mind that. acceleration kinda lags, i find myself goin into overdrive on accident sometimes bc i feel like clydes not movin much so i jus keep pushing the pedal lol

Cons

Not the most economic car.

The Best Car I've Ever Driven. — Nowadays cars are built so that the car has more control of driving than the driver. But not Neon, it's a drivers car and definetly a good buy.

Pros

Nice car, one of the last sport-looking sedan, very comfortable and stable, fun to drive it.

Cons

Expesive at its repairments and parts.

45

Neon Days — Best model of Neon, low front, high back, looks pretty sport, nice handling, soft breaks, good acceleration, comfortable seats, the transmission feels nice and soft, I like it, you can drive as elegant or as furious as you want, it will be ready for it. The front panel could be better designed, the air panels are a little uncomfortable to adjust, all the parts and the services are little expensive but they worth it, has a little high fuel consumption over the city, but its reliable over highway.

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.
