2005 Dodge Neon Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Neon
The one most important thing about this car is that it runs very, very well for years even not needing to refill the liquids often. My car is over 10 years old and It's just recently that It's needed to be looked over by a mechanic for any type of repairs.
I like that my vehicle is small, compact and I like the color of it, gray. I like that it is usually reliable and very inexpensive to repair. I like the way it drives and It's easy to get a space because of Its size. I also like the alloy wheels. I don't like that my vehicle doesn't have cruise control for traveling. I don't like that only the front windows roll down automatically and that the back windows have to be rolled down manually. I don't like that I've had to have 3 new windshields put in for cracks because windshields tend to get cracked easily in North Carolina and I have a small crack in the one it has on now. My complaint is that only around 48,000 miles this particular model tends to start getting all types of needed repairs.
A reliable and dependable Dodge neon.
A neon is a comfortable car with seats that can be adjusted to sit up or back. The car is very reliable provided you stick with the maintenance plan that consist of changing the engine oil and filter. The car has an am/pm stereo with a CD player. You can add auxiliary cables and USB to play music from a cell phone or mp3 player. The car runs smooth like a sewing machine. I have had to change the timing belt on the car and had take the head to the machine shop.
Motor mounts are the worst!
The car is very maneuverable and is great for a first time driver. Due to the size of the car, it can fit in compact spaces. It does not come with a lot of the modern day features. It started having major issues after 8 years of having it. One of the biggest issues with the car is the motor mounts. Due to the fact that there is only a large mount on top and two small torque mounts on the bottom, they are easily breakable and have caused many issues.
Nothing interesting to add it is a basic car.
It works fine. Rusts easy. Tires are cheap. Easy fixer. Good starter car. Reliable. Good on gas. Gets good gas mileage. My car is pretty rusty, but it is easy to remove and replace rusted areas if willing to put the time into it. My car has had a past over overheating a few time during warmer days when I drive for a long time. Normally around the 60 mile mark it starts to get hot during the summer.
Probably that with good snow tires it can make it through almost anything. Many people assume that I have car troubles in the winter, but it is quite the opposite.
It has proven to be extremely dependable. I put good snow tires on it and it has front wheel drive, so I have never gotten it stuck in the snow despite the fact that I live in northern Minnesota. I dislike that the cd player no longer works. The muffler also keeps falling, but I live in a very rural area and take lots of back roads so that may contribute. Overall, it has been a great car.
Pioneer in a little Dodge neon!
Throttle problems with my vehicle the performance is great and so is reliability. As far as comfort, I couldn't be happier. And as far as the features the car looks great but there is a bumper that needs to be replaced. It did come with a pioneer system and I did install a subwoofer myself. Most things have been upgraded including the headlights and the wipers for the windshield.
Economical auto, would recommend.
It does not really take much gas, so with 20 dollars my tank is full. It is very economical. Would recommend. It is also pretty spacious inside yet cozy. The thing I am not I am total love with is the radio, it is a little outdated. But there’s little devices you can connect to play your music. There’s AUX device and there’s one you can connect with Bluetooth.
It is a very dependable car if you maintain it properly
My car is very economical on gas it is comfortable for me as a larger person I am over 6 ft tall and it has room for me to stretch out. The problem I have with this car is a problem most dodge products have and that is the transmission is prone to problems and the alternator is in a hard to reach place and is in a location that is problematic for alternators
Touchy acceleration and brake, good mileage.
This vehicle is a Dodge Neon in bright blue. I love it because it's a sturdy little vehicle that is well made. There is plenty of room for hauling, which I occasionally need to do, but it not a gas guzzler and gets good mileage unlike a truck or SUV might. Sometimes the engine shudders and I don't know why, but that is about the only thing I would change.
My Dodge Neon is perfect for me.
I really love my 2005 Dodge Neon. It is the perfect size for me. She's very reliable lol I call it a she. When I need to repair her the parts are not very expensive. The gas is not very expensive because she runs very well in the gas last forever and it does not cost much to fill up the tank. She's got great power for me. . . She's actually very fast:-).
