1994 Dodge Neon Highline 2.0 SOHC from North America
Nice car with many problems
Head gasket just 1 week ago.
Water pump and timing belt replaced last October, needs to be replaced again.
A/C system completely shot for over 1 year.
Brakes replaced 3 times (complete system).
Starter went at 50,000 miles.
2 oxygen sensors replaced.
Sealant on back window ran all over.
Paint on both bumpers flaking off.
Always have added at least 1 quart of oil between changes.
Not everything is bad, I like the way the car drives and handles. The brakes have been a pain and I am just finding about the head gasket problems.
The dealer has been useless so far.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Yeah, after reading all the negative comments about Neons I've come to believe the early ones are the best. Mine was made in March '94, and after 7 years I've had no major problems (just routine break work and that pesky O2 sensor). True, the radio sometimes stops working and the tailights fill with water, but compared to the nightmares I had with my '89 VW Golf (the worst car I've ever owned--and that includes a Chevette!), these are niggles.
