1996 Dodge Neon Sport 2.0 SOHC from North America
Cheap, but poor value, not for the long term
Had to replace front brakes and rotors three times.
Head Gasket Blew at 90,000 miles, heavily leaking oil.
Air Conditioning Unit failed (100,000 miles)
Radiator Fan failed 120,000 miles.
Paint very faded.
With the exception of the front brakes this car has been cheap to operate BEFORE 90,000 miles.
Do not buy an older or high mileage neon.
Do not buy a Neon if you want to use it for many miles or more than a few years.
The handling is poor and will make you nervous in poor weather or at interstate highway speeds. No Sport in this Neon Sport.
Performance is average for a 4 cylinder engine with a 3 speed automatic.
The car is cheap, but NOT A GOOD VALUE. You get what you pay for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
