2001 Plymouth Neon

Our Take on the Latest Model 2001 Plymouth Neon

2001 Plymouth Neon Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Chrysler launched Plymouth in 1928 as a low-price rival for Chevrolet and Ford, but the brand name will disappear at the end of the 2001 model year. The Neon will carry on as a Dodge model for 2002. DaimlerChrysler announced last fall that it would phase out Plymouth.

For its last season, Plymouth’s version of the Neon gets a handful of new features, including optional side-impact airbags for the front seats.

Like its Dodge twin, the Plymouth Neon comes only as a four-door sedan. It is available in base and LX price levels, the latter with standard fog lamps and heated outside mirrors.

With a pair of front buckets and a three-place rear bench, the Neon has the usual accommodations for five people. The rear seatback is split 60/40 and folds to expand the trunk’s 13-cubic foot capacity.

Air conditioning is standard on the LX and optional on the base model. Both come with a tilt steering column, rear window defogger and a six-speaker sound system with a cassette player.

Under the Hood
Plymouth Neons come with a 132-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; Dodge also offers a 150-hp version of this engine. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, and a three-speed automatic is optional. Antilock brakes and low-speed traction control also are optional.

I was in love with that car. It was spacious. It could fit 5 people all together. The trunk space was awesome. It was a wonderful car.
