Pros

Gas mileage

Cons

Acceleration and power are lacking

55

Good Every Day Driver — Weak acceleration, Solid car, interior and exterior look pretty sporty, gas mileage is amazing and I haven't had any problems with the car. I love driving it. My only problem is the power. Not super fast. Perfect as a first or second car for teens or if you want a car that'll hold up

Pros

Fun car, great mileage.

Cons

Too slow

55

05 Neon Sxt — This was my first new car purchased in March 05. Its Orange Blast metallic. 2.0 SOCH mated to an ATX. Acceleration isnt the greatest with the ATX, but the car will carve up a twisty road. Only probs. I had with it was a idle sensor and a bad injector. The car has almost 60k on it and still feels like the day I brought her home. Gas mileage is near 30.

Pros

Cheap top fill up

Cons

low resale

Last Year Of The Neon — The dodge Neon's where nice basic cars that had trim models that even made some of the them look cool. The low cost to maintain the Neon is helps to make the care a real deal and the fact so many where made parts are also easy to get. The only issue that some owners see is transmission issues after around 150K miles.

Sporty Car Without The High Gasoline Prices! — Only reason for selling is the need for AWD! This car drives like new, fast acceleration, comfortable ride and plenty of room. Definitely a sporty looking car! Great Gas Mileage! Very clean! Fun to drive! Has been very dependable for my family!

Pros

Car gets great gas mileage!

Cons

There are other similar vehicles that are better than this car. But, for more money...

It's Cool And Zippy. Get's You Where You Want To Go With Ease. — It vibrates more than other cars of it's kind. Other cars of it's kind get slightly better gas mileage. But,it does save a lot in gas and it 's very reliable. The styling of the car is a bit funny but fits in with the name.
