1995 Dodge Neon 2.0L from North America
Very Fast/Stylish car!
Needed new spark plugs.
Needed to clean off rad fan plug-in switch, rad fans wouldn't turn on.
Needed to replace thermostat and rad cap, because coolant kept bubbling over.
Speedometer works when it feels like it, even after I tried the 'soldering' method.
Water gets into the trunk.
Breaks squeal constantly, they wear quickly.
Headlights get yellow and faded, but I fixed that with some heavy duty scrubbing and tough cleanser.
Needed to replace horn.
Radio changes stations on its own.
Loud wind noise on highway, (and the windows are closed)
That's basically it... so far.
I love this car.
The car is very fast! Handling is great!
Great gas mileage!
It warms up fast in the winter.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am the writer of this review ^^. I just replaced the coolant temp. sensor. And my radiator fans don't turn on again, so there's another prob.
I'm am the writer of this review, The radiator fans were bad, they needed to be replaced. The relay's were fine.
I bought a 1995 Dodge Neon recently... any help or advice you can offer?
Yes here is some advice. Sell it asap for as much (as little) as you can! These cars have no resale value and before long you will find yourself paying numerous repair bills.
I owe Dodge/Plymouth Neon'95 Highline, SOHC.
I've purchased it for $2600 in 2003. Since then I've made QUITE a few repairs and 1 original color paint (Maaco, $585 total, 2-years gloss&peel warranty)
The car was pretty rough on me. I pay about $1500 over this years. I would pay 3-4 times more if I'll pull the car to repair shops on every occasion. So most repairs (including valve changes and main seal replacement) I've done by myself and that's makes me feel really good (about myself).
The car drives OK and is easy on gas.
