Negative connotations associated with the model name...

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.

Fuel Economy

Nothing, does what I need it to do.

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.

It is unique there were only 1,390

Does not go at all in snow!

Fun, Sporty, Good Handeling Car With Some Pep — Added Mopar body kit so it looks pretty sweet! Was disappointed that there wasn't much in the way of after market "bolt on" performance parts, but it is still fun to drive, gets great gas mileage and still pretty much looks like new. It is only driven in the summer. Only complaint is the clutch needs to be stiffer. Have had no problems with the car so far, it has been a great car.

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.

Gas Mileage, Cheap, Reliable, One of the Fastest cars in its class

Not an SRT-4......

My 2004 Dodge Neon — I currently own a 2004 Dodge Neon SXT (sport package) that I bought in 2006 for $9,700. The car is a great first car. It is faster than most other cars in its class and most people underestimate the Neon. Mine came with a rear spoiler, fog lights, a premium sound system, and upgraded wheels. It gets good fuel mileage as well which is another high point for the car. I recently installed a Cold Air Intake and SRT-4 catback exhaust which has increased my gas mileage and has made a huge impact in terms of sound. The catback made me loose a little bottom end power but I gained top end. The brakes are really good quality on mine and the handling is decent for FWD. I must have gotten lucky when buying mine as the car has held up so far needed only scheduled maintenance. The interior could be better but it isn't terrible and the outside is pretty decent looking, especially with the fog lights, spoiler, and my SRT-4 exhaust which has dual tips. All in all it is a good starter car and it can be fun to drive.
