    Excellent Compact Car, Very Low Maintenance, Great 2nd Or Commuter Car. — The Neon has great gas mileage and very comfortable for a small car. Took this car on several trips from San Diego to Denver (over 1200 miles) and was very comfortable. It is also very good in the snow as we ran into several heavy snow storms in the mountains and had no problems. The compact size makes it easy to park in tight spaces, and get around town. The four cylinder has more the enough power to make merging into freeway traffic easy. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for economical and reliable transportation. Especially students, a young family, or someone looking for a commuter car.

    Pros: Great handling especially in ice and snow. 30 mpg + on the highway mid 20's in town. Comfortable interior even on long trips. Low maint.

    Cons: Road noise is a little more the higher priced cars but that is to be expected.

    Errrrrrrrrrrr — Spent over $2500 fixing this car myself in parts......one things gets fixed another breaks......or leaks.....or falls off.....or disappears.....now that I am attending UTI I now have my own access to finding out exactly what I am missing, all that is left is checking for ohms bolts and amperage to make sure everything in getting the applied readings via manufacturers specification, gotta love shop key and all data......

    Pros: Gas mileage

    Cons: Breaks down all the time

    Fun Little Car. — I love the car it fits my needs as the only driver. Easy to do minor mechanical jobs such as spark plug and wires, engine oil, transmission fluid, brakes, drive belt. Plenty of fandom behind its legacy from three generations.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a good reliable car if maintained properly.  Has plenty of aftermarket parts available to customize.

    Cons: It does have its quirky mechanical issues sometimes.

    Overall It Is A Good Car. — i bought this car new in 2004 and drove it for 4 years prior to handing over to my daughter for college. She still drive it today. the only problem she has had is the moonroof motor went out after it was about 5 years old. The engine (like alot of Dodges) has a clicking from the lifters when you start it up until it warms up. I have noticed this in alot of the dodges I have owned. The back seat is not designed for grown ups as any smaller vehicle. Good truck space for a smaller car. I would definitely recommend getting cruise control as the long trips tend to be even longer without cruise control. I would recommend this car to anyone that is looking for a sporty ride or another family car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very dependable vehicle. Little maintenance required. Good looking sport design that anyone can drive.

    Cons: The gas mileage could be a little better for a smaller car. Should have bought one with cruise control.

    Great Student Car — I drove this car through college and beyond! It has been very inexpensive to keep up. Drove it to SC from MI on 3 tanks of gas (90 bucks)! Seats got some saltwater on them from the surfboard (yes, it fits in the car) and will not come clean -- which is very frustrating. Other than that, I love this thing! Only reason we are getting a new car is to have room for a growing family.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fuel Efficiency, reliability , great space for the compact car

    Cons: hard to clean fabric -- stains easily.

    Perfect Starter Car With Great Gas Milage. — I love this car. It took good care of me and i took good care of her. Very reliable and trustworthy. This car is well maintained and provided me with years of enjoyment and comfort. I would recommend this car to anyone (well maybe someone under 6ft tall!)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very practical.  True Gas Saver.  Sleek and stylish also

    Cons: Wish it had a little more power under the hood.

    Blue Dodge Sx 2.0 2004 — its my second car, first car got in an accident in the beginning of 2011 during winter. This one drives well and is good on gas, everything works, but it is all manual, which is okay with me, just gotta make sure people lock their doors when they exit.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it works

    Cons: brakes are squeely when its cold or wet out

    Good 1st Car. — Fun little torque car. But it's hard on parts. Or maybe that's just me. It's fun to drive in the winter time. It's got me liking Neon's and I plan for the first car I purchase to be the SRT-4 model.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun little gas eco car.

    Cons: Brakes and bearings go on them.
