This car SUCKS!!!
My biggest problem with the car is it makes a horrible clunking noise when reversing; gets worse when you turn in reverse. Does not do it going forward. Feels like the rear of the car is falling apart; we can't figure out what is wrong with it.
It squeals constantly (the belts); drives me crazy.
It has a strange clunk clunk clunk when you put your foot on the brakes, yet the brakes are brand new all the way around.
The car shakes at high speeds, although all front end parts are either new or are in good shape.
Rear struts have also been replaced.
I hate all the rattles and shakes this car has. I previously owned a 1988 Honda Civic sedan with 336,000km on it. It was 100 times the car the Neon is; I made a huge mistake getting rid of it. Anyone looking at buying a Neon, I highly suggest you steer clear. This car makes so many noises, I'm afraid to drive it. When you back up and it clunks, it feels like the rear end of the car is going to fall apart.
I've already started looking to replace it with another Honda. I will never again buy Dodge; this isn't our first bad experience with a Dodge.
And don't tell me it's because the car is high mileage, that's bull; my Honda was still a perfect little car, and this Neon can't hold a candle to it. The Neon is also horrible on fuel for a 4cyl.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
