Pros

Tough as can be, great stereo. Somewhat comfortable, decent driving position

Cons

Slow, weak handling, noisy, cheap feeling, ugly.

Tough, But That's About It. — Bought this car as an 'emergency car'. Not overly fun or cool in any way, but it's survived two accidents, one of which was very serious. Gave it to my gf when I paid it off. It's still running well.

Pros

Fun little gas eco car.

Cons

Brakes and bearings go on them.

Good 1st Car. — Fun little torque car. But it's hard on parts. Or maybe that's just me. It's fun to drive in the winter time. It's got me liking Neon's and I plan for the first car I purchase to be the SRT-4 model.

I Would Recomment This Car To A Family Member!!! — This car is the awesome. Excellent sound from factory stereo, acceleration and handling. Great gas mileage. Could not ask for a better car. Oh, did I mention that the car in black is GORGEOUS!!! Available upgrades, GO FOR IT. Holla.

Pros

Power, Handling, Build quality,

Cons

The worst thing is the badge

One Of The Few Greats — I dont see why anybody would buy anything else for a daily driver, it has anything a normal person could ever want and cost just a hair over $9,000 with only 9,000mi on the clock. More than eneough power to get you in trouble and can hang with just about anything in the twisties. It looks a bit plain stock but a mopar lip kit(under $200) solves that problem. The car now with about 50,000mi of daily use has never needed anything but a few oil changes and some better tires.

Pros

Everything

Cons

Needs more power

35

Awesome First Car — Fun car to drive, even funner to mod it. Easy mods such as a CAI, UDP, high flow cat, new exhaust system, a new cam, will definitely add more power and ultimately = more fun ;) Eats gas if you like to hear your CAI roar when you slam the peddle though. Overall awesome first car :)

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

Pros

It was free

Cons

It is to loud for me.

25

It Is A Good First Car — It is sliver, and very clean. It runs well and has 40,000 miles on it. The bast part is my parents paid for it:) It has a good gitty up and does well on speed. It gets pretty good gas milage as well.

Pros

Fun, frugal and surprising torque

Cons

Negative connotations associated with the model name...

25

Decent Entry Level Car, Quality Is Good Thanks To Relationship With Mercedes At Time Of Build — It may just be a Neon, but I really like the styling... so much better than the old '90s Neon. Performance is good, had the car up over 185km/h running at only 4400rpm. Unlike most Chrysler cars, it even has comfortable seats! Granted they are ripped off from the SRT-4 which is ripped off from the Viper, but there you go.

Pros

Fuel Economy

Cons

Nothing, does what I need it to do.

25

Fuel Economy — Performance? Non-existant. Build Quality... Not horrible but definitely not a Porsche. Looks like an economy car. No 'styling' included, but it does have window tint and some Bradley stickers. Very cheap to drive. Good gas mileage. Not my idea of fun.
