Miss It! — Miss the care but not for everyone. It is a great car that I missed because I loved how it handled but I had to fix it all the time!

Pros: Loved the looks, Liked how it shifted (when it had a tranny in it that didn't break on me)

Cons: BROKE ALL THE TIME!!

Strongest Car In Class Period. — I love driving this car because the acceleration is amazing, and it handles very nicely. The only drawback to owning a dogde is that sometimes weird electrical things happen.

Pros: Quick, 5-speed, comfy, loud

Cons: Radio turns off if car is off and wipers are on, small

My First Car — I loved my dodge neon and almost everything about it. It was a 98 so of course it had some mechanical problems, but it is definitely a car you can put some work into and make special without spending a ton of money.

Pros: Sporty little car with great pick-up and the neon sport comes with fog lights and a rear wing to add little flair.

Cons: Again it was a 98 so it had some mechanical problems and the interior was way out of date - my seats had rainbow colored shapes all over them.

Gets You There And Back Fast! — it is a lower setting car so the seats are low on the inside too, has great handling especially when someone pulls out in front of you. The wing on the back was put on there as a styling accessory.

Pros: Great ride
overall great impression

Cons: like all cars it will need a few issues fixed every now and then

Nine Years Of Solid Performance — After all this time it still accelorates great and handles beautifully. The five speed transmission is geared perfectly for the 2.0 Liter DOHC four cylinder engine. The suspension hold tight to the road and ducks into to turns leaving you feeling in perfect control of the road. The paint on this trim has stood up much better than that of the other '98 Neons. As of 2006, other than routine maintenance, I've only had to replace the head gasket, a coolant hose, an A/C hose and a clutch cable. While the head gasket work was done (at 98,000 miles) I had the water pump and timing belt replaced. Overall I would say that this rates as very low maintenace for a U.S. built car. Consider with that that the car was also used during most of its life in areas that salt or sand the roads during the winter. This car was the first car I purchased coming out of college. I bought it because it was the best equipped cars for the money at that time. Maybe it's me, but it seems like that car helped shaped the paradigm of releasing a high performance trim for every compact model. My car has been from the Canadian border to the Mexican border and Atlantic to Pacific with no major problems. After sitting outside for two years while stationed overseas the only thing the car needed was a new battery.
