    2004 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SXT Sedan Review

    My 2004 Dodge Neon — I currently own a 2004 Dodge Neon SXT (sport package) that I bought in 2006 for $9,700. The car is a great first car. It is faster than most other cars in its class and most people underestimate the Neon. Mine came with a rear spoiler, fog lights, a premium sound system, and upgraded wheels. It gets good fuel mileage as well which is another high point for the car. I recently installed a Cold Air Intake and SRT-4 catback exhaust which has increased my gas mileage and has made a huge impact in terms of sound. The catback made me loose a little bottom end power but I gained top end. The brakes are really good quality on mine and the handling is decent for FWD. I must have gotten lucky when buying mine as the car has held up so far needed only scheduled maintenance. The interior could be better but it isn't terrible and the outside is pretty decent looking, especially with the fog lights, spoiler, and my SRT-4 exhaust which has dual tips. All in all it is a good starter car and it can be fun to drive.

    Pros: Gas Mileage, Cheap, Reliable, One of the Fastest cars in its class

    Cons: Not an SRT-4......

    A Decent Car — First off, the performance. Acceleration is OK considering the engine size. Braking would of course depend on the brakes put on the car. As for handling, I hate it. The car is front wheel drive so handling is affected. If you notice, I "owned" this car... let's just say its not the drifting car. At the same time, I never had to get any repairs on it except for a hose that was leaking, but of course that happens to all cars. It doesn't look too bad either... it gets pretty awesome gas mileage.

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Front Wheel Drive

    It's A Great 1st Car — preformance is pretty good for what it is, it feels fast and handles pretty well. Breaks could be better. Stock sound isn't bad.

    Pros: Feels Fast

    Cons: Horrible in Snow

    Economy — This is a good little car that my wife and I have. It get's good MPG, and is sufficient for what we need. The draw back is that that's all it is there's nothing nice or fancy or great about it.

    Pros: Good little car.

    Cons: Check engine light is on and won't go off no matter what I do.

    Kinda Pricey! — Sorry this is the only photo I have of my car at the moment, but I will take another one soon. (I was actually taking a pic of my Jack Russell "Ruckus" in his Santa suit...and he was NOT amused!) Anyhoo....I own a 2004 Dodge Neon. It's ok on gas and has been a "pretty good" car, though I've had to put a lot of money in to repairs & maintenance, on top of kinda pricey car payments and FC insurance. But what'cha gonna do? Gotta have a ride! All in all, it's been a good car, though I was not very happy with having to start putting money in to repairs after only having it for 6 months, and it was only two years old when I bought it. Oh well...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's lasted a long time!

    Cons: I've put a lot of money in to replacing parts! :(

    Excellent Value For The Money — Like the good fuel economy,but dislike the long gear ratio of transmission, easy to park at any parking spot, the interior colour and the exterior colour match excellent, this small car, with all the luxury, is an ideal ladies or studenst car. .

    Pros: It's looks and all the luxury items
    Trunk is quite big

    Cons: roadholding and cabin noise average
    Small gas tank

    Tough, But That's About It. — Bought this car as an 'emergency car'. Not overly fun or cool in any way, but it's survived two accidents, one of which was very serious. Gave it to my gf when I paid it off. It's still running well.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Tough as can be, great stereo. Somewhat comfortable, decent driving position

    Cons: Slow, weak handling, noisy, cheap feeling, ugly.
