Chrysler needs to bring back the neon!

2004 Dodge Neon SXT

I love my neon. It is worn out, and I will probably rebuild it. The car has close to 200,000 miles on the odometer, and still starts up on the second crank. It is a zippy little car, not fast, but adequate. . For being a subcompact, it has a surprisingly large interior. Particularly the trunk, which is an afterthought on most compacts. . The good: it is an incredibly reliable car. Even with as much wear as it has, it gets up and goes. It has an excellent heater, and a decent air conditioner. Its power steering is on point and works well even at low speed. The abs braking system is reliable and works well. . The bad: first off, this one is subjective. It has an automatic transmission, which I view as training wheels. The only good to that is it has cruise control. Second, it has leaked oil since around 100,000 miles, and I cannot determine where. The shocks are shot, but they actually lasted a very long time, so not so sure that is a 'bad' thing, but it makes the car feel a little unstable. . The really bad. It gets very hot in the summer where I live, and when the air conditioner is running, the transmission will lock itself in a gear and overheat, necessitating that I pull over and let it cool off. This only happens when the a/c is running. It is somewhat random and I have not been able to determine what causes it. . Overall, I love this vehicle. I am a fan of Honda vehicles, and this is the only american car I have ever had that compares.

Dodge neon repair extravaganza.

2004 Dodge Neon SXT

I figure the hardest part about my vehicle is the age. Since it is almost 15 years old by now there are a lot of things going out. I have fixed a ton of oil leaks. I also have had to do both sets of brakes (front seat and back set) 2 separate times, the front ones didn't give me much trouble, but since my car is going on 15 years the back brakes are drums. I have had them seized up the first time, and the repair shop I had to end up taking it to sawed them off just to get at them. The 2nd time I took it in they were just falling apart, and there were certainly things that the first repair shop should have told me about that the 2nd one told me, and had to ask me if I have ever had them done before. Otherwise there was only one other major issue which was the head gasket, but that was a preexisting condition that caused me no trouble I just noticed that I was going through oil fast, and white smoke would pop out every once in a while out of my exhaust so I had that checked out and done. I have loved my car though.

A great neon! The is a great car to get you from place to place.

2004 Dodge Neon SXT

I love driving my neon. It is a great starter car as I have been driving it for 11 years. I have not had any major issues with the car, just minor. The neon is a great car to drive long distance. The only thing I have to say is that it is not a great car in the snow.
