1998 Chrysler Neon Base 2.0L
Good car considering the price tag
Replacement of head gasket just last year due to overheating. Milling off the head required.
Paint on roof completely peeled off (this is a very sunny country all year round).
Noise in the front and rear suspension. Not a surprise considering the bad condition of the roads.
A/C unit must be repaired every 2 to 3 years (replacement of evaporator).
Water leaking into the cabin somewhere around the dashboard and trunk.
A very good car considering the price tag. Mine is a manual, base model, yes the one with the AM radio (very strange!). I bought this car brand new and no major bug ever happened to it. All repairs done are due to normal wear, except for the evaporator that constantly failed. I cannot understand how a fairly good car has such a cheap evaporator. I also own a Corolla 1999, and similar problems have occurred to it, except for the A/C that works like a charm.
I am still trying to fix the water leaks, which is presently my major concern.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
