Good For Back And Forth. — i dis like the use of space inside by the manufacturer. dash could have been smaller, front seats could have moved forward for more overall space. engine compartment very easy to work on. plenty of "out of the hole power".

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great fuel milage

Cons: could be alittle more roomy.

Nice Little Toy To Beat On — well one dodge sucks, the handling sucks, the gas mileage is good, but that type of car is just not a good car to drive around in. I hate that car, brought me more trouble than I ever needed, just hope to see it gone soon, and I mean real soon. When I first bought it, it needed repairs, cost me some paychecks, really was unhappy then, still unhappy now, it's still registered but insurance is off of it, I have the title and key to it. Some day the brakes will need to be done to it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good car for gas saver

Cons: maintenance is needed badly for this car

This Car Has Been Unbelievably Good To Me Over The Last 12 Years. — Great car. I've owned it for 12 years now and she's still running great. It makes surprising good power from it's tiny 2.0L SOHC engine. Fuel economy is great. At 70 to 72 MPH it gets 40+ mpg, in town it gets about 25 mpg. The handling is incredible. It is an absolute blast to drive. Even after all these years it still puts a smile on my face to just look at this awesome little machine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, fuel economy, cost

Cons: Acceleration, paint that easily flakes off

Cheap Commuter Car With Some Sportiness — Kind of poor on build quality. engine is noisy and protests being pushed but gas mileage is decent with the 5 speed manual tranny. Handling is pretty decent for a compact car but could be better with the sport trim.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: engine is bulletproof

Cons: engine is loud

Best Neon In The World — I drive a 96 Neon. It has a full bodykit. rims, custom interior, intake, and aftermarket headlights and taillights. I've put over 6 thousand dollars into it and have had to replace the engine and transmision. Its the greatest neon in the world

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

Pros: this is a one of a kind car

I Like This Car. — For being a little 2.0 four cylinder, it picks up pretty quick. Mine right now can do 0-60 in a bout eight seconds. the engine rattles just a bit, but im fixin it pretty soon i have done aftermarket cosmetics to it, so it looks good now. the gas mileage is decent, and it was cheap to buy to begin with. i like driving it overall.

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

Pros: anything you want to do to it is easy

Cons: the engine is somewhat annoying

'96 Dodge Neon — The perfomance is shoddy, the car needs a good tune up. As for quality, see above. The appearance is not bad at all, but it is a COMPLETE gas hog. I enjoy the car for driving purposes however, and will continue to use it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Color, age, new brakes

Cons: gas hog, needs a tune up
