Summary:

I love my Neon ES!

Faults:

A/C condensator broke down 2 months ago. Also had to have A/C complete rewired about 6 months ago. Aside from that, I've needed no major repairs.

Paint job has held well. Plastic cover of headlights has glazed over.

General Comments:

Great car for the cost. Looks sporty, but feels like a sedan.

Original 15 inch Eagle Goodyear tires are a trap though.

Summary:

A cool compact car

Faults:

Transmission leaks from shift link seal.

Front brakes lock very easy (maybe faulty proportioning valve)

Pads all around need replacing.

Blown rear left hand side shock.

General Comments:

This car has some faults such as skittishness in the rain and stiff ride, but it is a great car.

Engine makes a lot of power, but only above 4500 rpm.

Looks great, drives fast, handles good, I love it.

Great gas mileage if you keep your lead foot in check.

Lots of space once you manage to get in, even in the trunk.

Non-adjustable steering wheel is something to get used to.
