Front Wheel Drive

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.

Pros

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.

Pros

It's lasted a long time!

Cons

I've put a lot of money in to replacing parts! :(

345

Kinda Pricey! — Sorry this is the only photo I have of my car at the moment, but I will take another one soon. (I was actually taking a pic of my Jack Russell "Ruckus" in his Santa suit...and he was NOT amused!) Anyhoo....I own a 2004 Dodge Neon. It's ok on gas and has been a "pretty good" car, though I've had to put a lot of money in to repairs & maintenance, on top of kinda pricey car payments and FC insurance. But what'cha gonna do? Gotta have a ride! All in all, it's been a good car, though I was not very happy with having to start putting money in to repairs after only having it for 6 months, and it was only two years old when I bought it. Oh well...

Excellent Value For The Money — Like the good fuel economy,but dislike the long gear ratio of transmission, easy to park at any parking spot, the interior colour and the exterior colour match excellent, this small car, with all the luxury, is an ideal ladies or studenst car. .

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

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.)
