SOmeone has one for sale for $500.00. I don't know mileage etc. The mechanical problem is that the accelator has to be kept down to keep running. My 16 year old needs a first car. Does this sound like a major expense to fix?

The gentleman who has it for sale, says that he got it running.  But now the accelarator has to be held down constantly to keep it running.

Dear 1LadySprite-- That's awful nice of you to spend $500 on a car for your 16-year-old, but why choose this one. It obviously has problems that need immediate attention and many of the possible problems would cost you more than the car itself to repair. Check your local version of Craigslist.com and look at the bulletin board at your supermarket. If someone tried to trade this Dodge Neon at my dealership, we wouldn't value it at more than zero. Good luck from Bovan.
