Do not buy 95-98 used Neons
Misfires in cylinder 4 at 18,000 miles, dealer mechanic could not explain.
Breaks needed replacing at 25,000 miles (75% hi-way driving)
Break system failed while driving at 35,000 miles, reason never found.
Ignition coils worn at 40,000 miles.
Engine runs very rough after start sometimes for 10 minutes, any weather conditions.
Cam gasket failure at 55,000 miles.
PCV valve failure at 55,000 miles.
Tape player does not work 60,000 miles.
Costly cylinder head gasket failure at 65,000 miles.
Chrysler has been no help at all to fixing these problems. They refused to determine any problems when the car was under warranty.
The car is nice to drive, which is the only good thing about it.
A scary moment in this car came when the disc brakes would not engage in city driving, forcing me to use the emergency brake to come to stops.
$1,000.00 CDN to fix defective head gasket. Chrysler refuses to cover any costs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
