Great Car That Will Last But Also Has Issues Cuz Its A Dodge — Overall this car is decent. The performance is alright, it could get up and go more and Ive had issues with the tranny. Its built to withstand a lot of different weather..trust me, I know. The appearance I love and have made it a nice car even though its mostly stock :P.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun car

Cons: Tranny

Excellent Inexpensive Starting Or Racing Car. — Have only had it for a few years, but it's a great car. Hasn't needed work other than basic maintenance and a new battery. Drives pretty much like any other sports car, great acceleration, great braking, excellent handling. Only downside is it only gets about 20ish mpg, which doesn't seem right to me. Could have a couple aftermarket parts, I haven't bothered to check. Was well worth the $6000 I paid for it used at I think 70k miles.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: Only 20ish mpg

Neons Are Awesome. I Miss Them — I love my car. It could be faster, but its nice looking, handles well, and has been quite reliable. Milage is decent. the five speed tranny helps a lot. I have a lot of fun driving my car. as said it could be faster though

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I drive it!!

Cons: its a little slower than id care to have

Clyde! — meet clyde! he is automatic. NO FUN. slow basically. wasnt my choice of car, but for free, it was good. in good condition, hasnt had many problems. except the trunk freakin leaked water because the seal on the tail light was bad... yeah turns out it happens to a ton of neons but dodge is too lame to do a recall or whatever. so clyde smelled moldy for a while haaha. appearance is perfect, no dings or what not. "champagne" is not my color choice, but at least the dirt isnt noticeable LOL. gas mileage is mediocre... i like to put the pedal to the metal sometimes n im sure that doesnt help it any. i dont drive it thaaat often, so oil changes are far apart and i do it myself anyway. as for performance... brakes well, handling is a bit touchy but i dont mind that. acceleration kinda lags, i find myself goin into overdrive on accident sometimes bc i feel like clydes not movin much so i jus keep pushing the pedal lol

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: was freeeee

Cons: is slowww and no fun

I Love It! — The Performance is really pretty good for a small and light car. It has not needed repairs for anything but the speakers are a little rattly. The gas mileage is great and i get about 34mpg and i almost always go about 75 and up so for someone to get more wouldn't be that hard.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its Small and Nimble

Cons: Its Light and Easy to Slide

My Yellow Car Of Happiness — I don't really like yellow, but it has a sunroof, that was the selling point. After some emission problems, it is running fine. Most of the problems were covered under warranty, but I spent the better part of 5 months trying to get it fixed correctly. Chrysler had to send a rep out to review what was being done on it, he was stumpted also.

Pros: Sunroof, sound system, gas milage, 5 speed

Cons: nothing, now that it's fixed

Neon Days — Best model of Neon, low front, high back, looks pretty sport, nice handling, soft breaks, good acceleration, comfortable seats, the transmission feels nice and soft, I like it, you can drive as elegant or as furious as you want, it will be ready for it. The front panel could be better designed, the air panels are a little uncomfortable to adjust, all the parts and the services are little expensive but they worth it, has a little high fuel consumption over the city, but its reliable over highway.

Pros: Nice car, one of the last sport-looking sedan, very comfortable and stable, fun to drive it.

Cons: Expesive at its repairments and parts.

Point A To B — Only 1 dislike aside from the whole dodge thing, One year fit only. Replacement parts cost a ton for no reason other then a single mold. other then that theres tons of room in the engine bay for swaps!

Pros: Great gas mileage

Cons: One year part fits.

Like It — Its great for a daily since i can't afford gas. Its a little rocket for 4 cylinder, and still gives me good mileage. Most people hate these cars, but i only talk cars with mechanics and die-hard car people.

Pros: Good mileage, handling and acceleration.

Cons: Its a neon and i get made fun of for even buying it.

I Would Buy Another One — i dont like that the back windows are not electric. i like the gas mileage it gets theses days. i wish it had more power and a little heavier so i dont get blowen all over the place in bad wind

Pros: gas mileage

Cons: not a big enough motor for my lead foot
