2004 Dodge Neon

The little Neon that could has gotten a bad rap over the years because of its poor reliability and numerous problems under the hood.  What doesn't get talked about is that in its subcompact class, it has always been the fastest, roomiest, and probably the most fun to drive of all of its competitors.  While short on creature comforts, it's long on power and handling.

Little has changed for the 2004 Dodge Neon.  Both the base SE and SXT trims feature a 2.0-liter, 132-hp engine matched with a 5-speed manual (or optional 4-speed automatic, which many drivers say doesn't take advantage of the peppiness of the engine).  The SE gives you basic features, but the SXT offers a lot more options and is probably the better value.  A Sports Package can be bought for the SXT that adds a spoiler and fog lamps.  The R/T is the performance sport model Neon, with a 2.0-liter engine that gets 150-hp combined only with the 5-speed and a sports-tuned suspension, steering, and special badging.

The Neon is a fast little subcompact, but its wide wheelbase gives greater stability and precise handling on the road.  Because it is so roomy, it works well as a starter family car, affordable and comfortable, with a fairly big trunk for storage.  There are not a lot of bells and whistles, because the 2004 Neon focuses on performance and practicality over luxury.  Complaints range from rough idling, a rear blind spot, loud road noise at high speeds, and a poor resale value.
