A Lot Of Car For Cheap. — Not the most powerful car on the road but it has held up under some great abuse and keeps pushing back, great investment. Easy to work on as well, and the cost of the parts are cheap, plus when it's running well it can be a fun car to drive.

Pros: It has the ability to take a beating.

Cons: It's very heavy for it's class

Good American Car — It seems to be solidly built and it gets great mileage. It's hard to compare with other cars as it's the newest one I've ever had. It's cute. I haven't had any trouble with it so far. The interior is usefully designed.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy

Cons: Nothing.

My Impression Of The Neon, Is That It Nickel And Dimes You To Death, But Sturdy And Good — Dont get me wrong it does great on gas mileage, but other then that i have had it since 2004 and i have had to replace the radiator, all 4 motor mounts, calaper's, went through 3 or more sets of brakes, 3 sets of tires, ect. I just wish that the transmission would not have went out! It no longer goes in reverse and hasnt for a while. Also ever since i got the car the CD player makes a clicking sound when it goes to eject a CD

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Get gas mileage, smooth ride, Long Battery life

Cons: Reverse is the First thing to go out on Trasmission, Motor mounts dont last long, nickel and dimes you to death

Great Gas Mileage, Dependable, And Fun — It's got good performance for a little four-banger. The manual transmission and sport suspension make for a little fun around town. It's dependable when serviced often. It's got great throttle response around 3500 rpm. My only complaint comes from the reverse gear in the transmission slipping out of gear somewhat regularly.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economic and fun

Cons: It's a Dodge Neon?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks, and its a dodge

Cons: dont make it anyone, classic

Great Sport Package On A Discontinued Production Line From Dodge! — I've only had it for a few months now and haven't taken it on the highway but from I've driven of it so far it's terrific! Rides like it's on rails, has pretty good pickup. Not mind blowingly fast but is 'peppy.' Braking power is a little on the weak side but gets the job done. The aesthetics of this car are simply awe inspiring and one of the main reasons I picked this car up used. It comes stock with body trim with spoiler, R/T badging, 16 inch aluminum rims, also 6-dash in car cd player, leather wrapped shift boot and steering wheel, power package, cruise control, ABS, and a 2.0 L DOHC generating (manufacturers figures) 150 lb. BHP, and 147 ft. lb. torque. It also has an aggresive looking front faschia and some cool teardrop headlights and the coolest fog lights i've seen. I highly recommend the 2003 Dodge SX 2.0 R/T. Update: after having it for a year now and taking it on the highway and getting snow tires my opinion has improved. This is still a great sport-compact. It's not mind blowingly fast but you can get up to highway speeds in a flash and the cruise control helps a lot. The car does make a lot of creaks and groans i've noticed though this could be due to the cheaper build quality though. Also I might've exagerrated on the 'awe-inspiring, visuals.' I was still on a high from recently purchasing the car. Don't get me wrong I still adore the looks of it but compared to say a Lambo, or Ferrari it's relatively meh... which is ok it's a sport compact not an exotic (apples to oranges). For what it is I like the looks of it compared to say a Focus, Civic, or Sentra. Even it's replacement at Daimler/Chrysler the Calibur has nothing on this car in terms of looks, at least in my opinion. Cost of ownership is great. It's not to hard on insurance costs and gassing it up is not frequent. It's all around low maintenance which is great. Lots of SX 2.0 and Neon parts around if need be. The car is just fun to drive. The gears are quite short, so you'll get a bit of a rush upshifting and downshifting and the car has a nice throaty sound from the exhaust and engine. Throttle response is nice too compared to say a Contour or Cavalier. Unfair comparison you might say?? Well i'm basing this from what I've driven it's certainly fun to drive, compared to those. Thanks for reading my review!

Pros: Peppy, Gas Miser, Sport Suspension, Standard Transmission, Stock Stereo is great, Power Package, I get lots of compliments, about it's overall look.  Uhm.. it has a Tape Deck??

Cons: Car's ABS is all over the place during winter season, 6 dash CD player is placed horrendously, Terrible peripherals due to awkward side pillars and spoiler.  Rear windows are not automatic.  Not to much to complain about though after a year!

The Title Is Salvaged — I have had this car for about 4 months now and it has been a good car so far. Performance-wise it is a weak car but it gets me from a to b. The cost of ownership is great with the great gas milage. It was my first car and it has been a great one.

Pros: Gas Milage

Cons: Power
