I bought the Plymouth Neon Expresso right out of high school from a neighbor of mine and I used it throughout my college career. Aside from the head gasket blowing out at around 90k miles, and overheating when every so often, the car was been rather good to me. To the reviewer who said that this car was fun to shame better cars with, they are absolutely correct! This baby definitely has some pickup, and I would always blow some fancy fixed up Honda out of the water with my ugly, green, missing 3 hub caps machine!!

I bought the 2-dr Expresso with 98,000 miles three years ago. Currently have over 135,000 miles. A/C leaked refrig from a loose service fitting, tightened it an A/C still blowing cold. No other work other than routine, high mileage servicing. Have made a few autocross runs and trips down the 1/4 mile drag strip pulling +7K RPM without any problems. A few squeaks and rattles, but everything works. It's a fun car to embarrass "better" cars with!

i got this car used about 2 years ago and so far i have spent more money on repairs than the actual car itself. it has broken down on the interstate, hoses have rusted, my ac adaptor had to be replaced and my air conditioning STILL doesnt work!! i have taken it to the shop a few times and finally one of the workers there told me he had the same exact problems as me, especially with the ac adaptor except he replaced his twice and it still never worked, and he told me to sell it while i still could. i do NOT reccommend this car to anyone ESPECIALLY a college student who drives back and forth from home to school. i get nervous whenever i drive it
