2001 Chrysler Neon SE 2.0 petrol
Well priced car, no BMW 3-series, but good for the price
Better standard equipment than most in class.
Comfortable interior, with great driving position. Materials and Plastics quality poor.
Ride and Handling trade-off just about right.
Engine surprisingly economical, averaging 38-45mpg (uk gallons) ; actually more economical than my 1.0 litre Hyundai atoz I drove before. Seems to use a lot of oil though. Good Performance above 3500rpm, but no much low end. Gearbox has nice action, but ratios could be spaced better. Engine is unrefined, and noisy above 2500rpm/on the motorway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
