2000 Chrysler Neon LE 2.0 from North America
The cheapest luxury car I know
The rear name label peeled off twice.
A wiring harness ripped off from the air conditioner compressor and a Dealer from Las Vegas repaired it with tape at very high price! 300$, I was robbed!
The dashboard started peeling when it was new and it looks as it will keep on peeling.
The paint is peeling off from the driver's side lower door jam and it's already rusting.
The battery went completely dead on the second summer!
If the motor stalls slowly going uphill for example, it is almost impossible to restart. Dealers can't explain this.
My neon came equipped with 15 inch wheels and winter tires are impossible to find for these!
The trunk lock had to be removed and lubricated.
The motor runs much too fast on fifth gear resulting in poor fuel economy and noisiness.
The air conditioner lacks power.
The car handles great especially with fifteen inch wheels. It also stops on a dime.
It is very comfortable and the sound system is incredible!
It is roomy and looks great inside and out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I think you have a serious problem if you think in any way shape or form that a Neon is analogous with luxury. Ever ride in a BMW or Mercedes?

I drove BMWs for years - different models - now I've just test-driven some Neons and I don't see the difference in the comfort section. Tomorrow I'm gonna buy one.

Might I ask what kind of BMW's?

Did a tune-up on our neon, MSD ignition coil & MSD 8.5mm spark plug wires with E3 spark plugs, K&N air and oil filter, drained out all the old oil. It was similar to "sludge", no wonder why it was running bad. I put in some decent oil, it was about a week before the car "ran its course". The car runs a lot smoother with lower RPM. That was only a tune-up.
