Good honest and reliable, but quite expensive
The head gasket blew at approx 72.000 miles which was expensive. had to have the radiator totally stripped due to the head gasket blowing.
The neon has a great shape. of which you don't see much in england. the interior is sparse and uses to much plastic. the turning circle is fairly poor. the seating is great of which I don't get pains in my legs or back while covering large distances. I have never had a problem with starting in hot or cold climate which I think is a great contribution to the car. the original alloys wheels are still on the car and look great. I've changed the cam belt after the previous owners had it and the original is still perfect. petrol consumption is quite high for around town, but I think quite good on longer distances.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
