Very reliable & spacious

For the year that it was, it was a very good car. Bought it used, so initially I had to work on the heater core. Actually the dealer repaired it. Afterwards, I kept that car 14yrs. Took me wherever I wanted to go. By then it became my 2nd car. I allowed my son to use it for some years. So the upkeep went down. Then I used it weekends only. Eventually sold it to a friend. He's loving it still as a 2nd car. You just have to upkeep your vehicles.. Always! Rode smoothly, spacious interior. Nice trunk space. Engine reliable. I just adored it. Many Mike's in it and still rolling to this day! I see him from time to time here and there. U always ask if I could buy it back. Lol He's not budging..

Gas Saver

I've had my dodge neon since 1997. It's always been reliable. The cost and car is minable. Seats comfortably. Saving gas is a big issue and when others are paying higher out of pocket, I don't. It's a four cylinder car and I like it, at the gas pumps. Good gas mileage in and out of town. Pop open trunk,, kid safe door locks, and back window's roll down part way for again safety issues, love this car, can't go wrong owning it, at all. I purchased this car new in Las Vegas Nevada, now living in WNC, my little dodge keeps me a going.

Value right here.

Ive owned 3 Dodge Neons in 10 years. All have been reliable to me (because I properly maintain them) About $15k total investment between all 3 of them. Reccomend a manual transmission for increased reliability. These cars are NOT meant to last years and years. They were $12k new. in 2010 you could get a used one for $3k. If it lasted you 1 year, it did its job. Dont complain about the car when its the owner that cheaped out. Also, buy from a dealer who offers a 1 year warranty with every vehicle. my last neon's auto transmission failed within 6 months, and it was 100% replaced and paid for by the dealer. Buy smart.
