2003 Dodge Neon 4 Dr R/T Sedan Review

Great Car For The Money, Have Enjoyed It From The First Day! — I haven't have too many problems, I had a warped rotor when it was about 3 years old. Recently the engine light comes on when I get gas. It could be the gas or the gas cap, not sure yet. People always tell me they like my car. Mine's yellow with black rims. I'm thinking of selling it though, the manual transmission isn't helping with my bad shoulder.

Owner for 4 years, 9 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Cons: Price

2003 Dodge Neon 4 Dr R/T Sedan Review

A Little Over-priced But Gets Me From Point A To Point B. — Has 88,000 miles. I've had it for one year and have only needed to take it in once or twice for maintenace, both problems dealing with complete loss of power.

The Greatest Car Ever Built. Period. Exclamation Point. — This is, by far, the greatest car I have ever owned. Period. I bought this particular model because it had no equipment; manual windows, manual locks, no A/C, and in a manual transmission. When I bought it, it was 3 years old and had about 70,000km on it. Since then, I have really only replaced brakes, tires, rear wheel bearings, cam and crank sensors, and serviced fluids and performed tune-ups as required. It has a few upgraded parts on it as well. I installed B&G drop springs, a Progress 3-way adjustable rear sway bar, and installed a custom front strut tower brace, cool-air intake with heat shroud, and replaced the muffler with one that's a bit louder. I also installed EBC Greenstuff brake pads. I drive this car all year round, and for the summer I have a set of 15" Motegi wheels with GT Radial 328 tires. I will admit, with the car lowered, it's a bit of a plow in the winter, but that's life. The car has nearly 200,000km on it, and the last 130,000km has not been easy on it. It's had many miles of hard driving, and even a track day thrown in for good measure. It's still running with a factory clutch, factory alternator and factory starter (knock wood), and the engine has no leaks.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This is, hands down, the greatest car ever built.

Cons: They stopped building it and brought out the Dodge Caliber... The worst vehicle ever built.
