This is a great little car. Great gas mileage and very inexpensive to drive as long as you keep the oil changed every 3000 miles. I have 198,,000 miles on mine and haven't had any major issues.
Only problem I have with the Neon is the brakes are to small. In an emergency situation they will not stop you in time. If Dodge would fix this one problem they would have a great vehicle.
I got the 5 speed transmission so I use the engine as a brake by down shifting in emergency situations.
I would really like to see Dodge fix this problem and start producing Neon's again.
