When I first got the car, I must admit I loved it. Nice shape and leather interior, air con, central locking electric windows and mirrors. It did in fact awaken an interest in cars that had been submerged previously. I was the "anything will do to get me from A to B" guy.
In low revs it sounds like a diesel. But not a problem.
OK round corners and the neon pulled off the amazing when an idiot in 2004 pulled out onto me from a side road and nearly crashed into me. Talk about swerving and control. Or may be I'm a good driver??? ;-)
The paint isn't too good, mine is in black and it has a white undercoat??? Black car polish kept it in trim, but what a 'mare to keep clean - as with any black car. Annoying to see the odd white mark break through though, on the edges of doors.
Seats comfortable and the leather has not worn badly.
34 miles to the gallon.
All in all the car looked nice at purchase time... although the shape is looking a little old fashioned now in my opinion. Doesn't look chunky enough for the exec driver compared to some in 2006.
But in the end... whilst the car never failed me on the road... it severely let me down in the repair garage... This car was a nightmare to keep up with repairs and I've decided to rejoin mainstream and get a new Vauxhall Vectra.
It's been the most expensive 42000 miles I've ever travelled in two years!
I will never buy a Chrysler again. Not even a Crossfire which I love the shape... but again... £500 for an exhaust?? Get real America!
