Pros

The car is dependable and has never had any mechanical issues, other than standard maintenance like brakes or tune-up. The best thing I love about this car is the fuel efficiency.

Cons

It might not be the fastest car. You don't want to go drag racing in it, but as far as standard things you do in the car, like drive it normally, it is great.

Great Gas Mileage — Yes I like they look of the car, but I did not buy it for the look. It is a good second car for me. I always felt safe in it, and it handled well. If you take care of it, it should remain a reliable car.

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.

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.

Pros

Gets excellent gas mileage, seats in both front and back are comfortable on long trips, handles really well and is a nice looking car.

Cons

the visibility for backing up is horrible, the rear spoiler is in the way and blocks your view. the rear windows are not electric like the front windows.

Cute Car And Fun To Drive — The color and body style of the car is what caught my eye when I bought it. It has over 100,000 miles on it and we have never had any major problems with it. The reason I am looking for another car is my kids are all grown and on their own, I am currently separated from my husband so I want something sporty and eye catching now.

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!

8000 — Great car! Automatic! Lasts forever as long as you take care of it! Sound system is great since the car acts like a box! Seats are very soft and in great condition. Gas mileage is awesome! Can drive to the nearest corner store or across the country!

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