The car that runs with the best of them.

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

My neon is a reliable vehicle. It starts when others will not. It runs like air when everything is working correctly. It has extremely good pickup. 8 have although experienced be a few problems with it. There is a shifting problem that keeps popping up giving me problems. I have been told it is sensors. A couple I have replaced a couple of times. And I have been told that is normal but overall it is a very busy good reliable car that I plan to keep forever.

Reliable car with few money guzzling problems!

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

Except for replacing tires once and taking care of a broken brake pad, I haven't put ONE penny into this little girl... except for oil changes and gas! Great gas mileage, too! Very little rust. Has great windshield that I have a full view from! Couldn't be happier or more satisfied with this car. Bought it new.

- Sandy B

The body style is pretty with the black interior and silver exterior.

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

It drives great and has great gas mileage can't complain. I have only had really one problem and that would the overheating which was due to thermostat and radiator needed to be replaced. Overall it's a great car keep up on the basic things that need to be replaced and you will have a long lasting car.

Only Buy For A New Driver

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

Vehicle is unreliable. The brakes wear out easily and drop down to the floor and the car regularly has something wrong with it. The car itself is a death trap and has a huge reputation for it. I would only buy this car for a new driver with the expectation that they would upgrade.

- Haley P

Only 85 thousand miles on her.

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

Runs great I have no problems with the car at this time. I maintain this vehicle from oil changes to brakes and rotors spark plug and wires. I drive my car to and from work Neon is a very reliable car wouldn't want a any other car. I only have 85 thousand miles on this dodge

- Donna R

Good car, runs well after more Than 10 years.

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

The car is old but still runs well, even after an accident the car still ran and with purpose. It needs minor repairs but not much more. It needs a new timing belt and the tires but other than that it is still running. It hasn't ever needed a new transmission even.

- Sarah J

Repairs are very cheap. When something does break, it won't break the bank.

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

I bought my Dodge Neon with around 80,000 miles and now have driven it to about 115,000 in three years. I have not had any major issues that came directly from the manufacturing (one accident). My 2005 Dodge Neon SXT has been very reliable, with good gas mileage.

- Randy B

She sounds smooth and speeds up quick for a small car

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

Sensors going out fairly easy but she's great on gas mileage. Never have any issues with oil, transmission, brakes, etc. everything runs perfect. Steering wheel went out once before but was a quick fix. Very reliable and parts are inexpensive. I love this vehicle

- Clara K

Blows ice cold air and rides smoothly!

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

The car blows cold air! It has a issues with the cooling fans! The car gets overheated very easily! If you are a bigger person it is just not roomy enough! The car rides smooth and makes you feel like you are barely going anywhere! It's a good car for a ride.

- Shannon B

My car is a duke blue dodge neon. I named her Daisy

2005 Dodge Neon SXT

My car is actually pretty great. The color is adorable and it has great gas mileage. I can pump 14-16 dollars in it, and it will last me about a week, which is really great in my opinion. I've had some minor issues with it, but they have been quick fixes.
