1998 Dodge Neon 2 Dr Sport Coupe Review

Its A Good Car — The performance works well, and the build quality is great. My car was garaged all its life for racing and it even still has the fire extinguisher in it. The appearance is good with only 2 doors and has a low gas mileage, and having a stick shift car is pretty fun to drive while in university.

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

Pros: Looks in a 4 cylinder car and to save on gas money.

Cons: Its not worth a lot compared to most other cars.

Love It - My Second Neon And By Far The Best Car I've Ever Owned (out Of Seven) — Purchased a black two door with the DOHC engine and 5 speed manual - NO A/C and NO power options this car is so light and quick it's the perfect sleeper/tuner. Better than a NA Cobalt SS! Nice interior, good looks, great on fuel - I installed H&R racing springs, Eibach sway bars, cross drilled and slotted rotors, and a K&N air filter and wow this car is light, tight, and full of might!

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

Pros: Cheap, easy to work on, fun to drive, peppy

Cons: Wind noise at speeds, potential head gasket problem

Unassumingly Fun Little Ride. So Long It Was A Dohc Model. — Performance was pretty good. downright impressive if compared to a civic. build quality could have been better and ditto to some cues of the appearance. cost of ownership was decent because i did most every repair myself. not too bad on gas and it was a fun ride that surprised many.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: power output for its size and configuration

Cons: it had almost NO POWER OPTION!!!!!!

An Econocar With The Heart Of A Racer. — A great used car...IF the head gasket has been replaced. Mine was, and the car has been a good little daily driver/city car. I got the car car from the original owner with 130K and it has performed well. Yes, it rattles, and one of the power windows needs to be fixed, but overall..it gets GREAT gas mileage and is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good Acceleration, Fuel Economy

Cons: Rattles, wind noise.

1998 Dodge Neon Acr — Fast and decent handling straight from the factory. 4 wheel disc brakes make this car stop on a dime at higher speeds. Mine personally came from the factory stripped and bare bones aside from a/c and power steering. Lots of aftermarket parts available and this car has quite a bit of potential for a tuner car

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

Pros: Fast and handles half way decent stock, many upgrades available for it, better than driving any honda product

Cons: Oil leaks! Motor Ticks

Good Reliable Daily Driver That Does Well On Back Windy Roads — It's a fun good handling car with a little bit of power. Easy to work on and a blast to drive good high 2.0 DOHC motor that screams from 4000 rpm all the way to the 7250rpm rev limiter. It only makes 150hp at 6500rpm but will pull to the rev limit. The trans is a close ration 5-spd which can get you the 130mph govener with out a problem. It get about 28mpg no matter how hard you drive it.

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

Pros: good handling and just a blast to drive

Cons: lack of power at times

Dodge Neon = Good And Bad — Dodge Neons are not very aesthetically pleasing. My car has been very good to me--no break-downs/never been towed. Slow acceleration, and not sturdy at speeds higher than 60 mph. The body is solid, no frame damage or rust even though it has never been stored in a garage. It is very good in the winter and reliable.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: its lasted forever

Cons: the looks
