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.

Pros

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

Cons

Not an SRT-4......

35

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.

Pros

Looks

Cons

Front Wheel Drive

35

A Decent Car — First off, the performance. Acceleration is OK considering the engine size. Braking would of course depend on the brakes put on the car. As for handling, I hate it. The car is front wheel drive so handling is affected. If you notice, I "owned" this car... let's just say its not the drifting car. At the same time, I never had to get any repairs on it except for a hose that was leaking, but of course that happens to all cars. It doesn't look too bad either... it gets pretty awesome gas mileage.

It's A Great 1st Car — preformance is pretty good for what it is, it feels fast and handles pretty well. Breaks could be better. Stock sound isn't bad.

Good little car.

Cons

Check engine light is on and won't go off no matter what I do.

Economy — This is a good little car that my wife and I have. It get's good MPG, and is sufficient for what we need. The draw back is that that's all it is there's nothing nice or fancy or great about it.
