I have a 95 Neon with 76000 miles with the leaky trunk.
The battery light stays on; I think it's cause most Neons have a power steering leak above the alternator.
Also the problem with the automatic transmissions, when you start off too fast, and it jumps or vibrates, and when it gets worse it will do it when it shifts gears; this is the forward clutches in the trans.. it is cheaper and easier to cross your fingers and buy a junkyard trans, put it in and sell the car..
In my opinion Neons are throw away cars; buy them brand new and when the timing belts go, then get a new car? And I only had my car a week before I had to put a trans in it LOL.
Now that I have read more about them, this will be my last one. If you have any questions that I might be able to answer, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com
The car does handle good though.
And gets great gas mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
