Stylish, Fast, Reliable and Value For Money
Front wishbone (suspension) rubber bushes replaced at 35,000 miles.
Alternatively styled for the UK market, my Neon R/T has done the brand proud it is totally reliable.
The handling is very good, but the suspension is a little harder than the 'normal' Neon models. It corners frighteningly well!
All the gadgets (ABS/TRAC/AC, etc) work well and reliably. It is good value for money.
Leather seats are nice, the seats have 5 3-point seatbelts and the car seems strong enough to protect your family if it all goes badly wrong.
The steering isn't 'alive' like on some cars, but is very sure - the car feels firmly planted on the road and sticks like glue around the corners.
My R/T gives me 30 to 35mpg on a mixed run - I'm very happy with it and won't be selling it yet. (Why would I sell it, it is great value for money and gives me a comfortable car, will tow up to 1 tonne, take 5 people, has gadgets, goodies, leather, AC and goes well. To replace it with most other brands of car would cost a fortune!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
