2003 Dodge Neon Overview

The 2003 Dodge Neon now comes in four trims, the base SE, the best-buy SXT, the high-performance R/T, and the fastest, sportiest SRT-4. The ACR and ES trims were dropped in 2003. As the base model, the SE still does not offer many standard features, and you'll have to pay extra for air conditioning and side airbags, but it's an adequate choice if you're looking more for affordability than comfort. The SXT offers a lot more standard features for little extra cost. Both trims feature the 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 132-hp engine and 5-speed manual transmission. The sportier R/T has a sports-tuned 2.0 engine (to 150-hp), suspension, and steering, with badging, stripes, 16-inch wheels, and leather trimmed steering wheel and gear shift.

In 2003, the Neon got a minor facelift to its front and rear moldings, door handles, and grille. The hood was lowered and the tail and headlights were tweaked slightly. The SXT features body-colored moldings for extra style.

As always, the 2003 Neon is praised for its large interior. 60/40 split rear seats add extra cargo room. Headroom, legroom, and seats are all comfortable for four adults. There is also good availability of aftermarket parts for interested tuners. Engine power, first-off-the-line performance, and easy handling around curves and in rough conditions are oft-overlooked features of the Neon that distinguish it from other compacts. Criticisms center on squealing brakes, poor performance with the 4-speed automatic, and an inadequately sized gas tank.
