1996 Dodge Neon from North America




What hasn't gone wrong with it?

1. The paint it is almost completely peeled off.

2. Air conditioner fan just stopped working one day.

3. Brakes always squeal, even though they are brand new.

4. Steering column - took it in to get fixed I don't know how many times, and it still makes an awful noise.

5. Roof light always goes on when I'm driving on the freeway, and the door open light comes on.

6. The list is endless.

I have always taken care of my car, and paid a pretty penny when I bought it in early 1997. When the paint started peeling off, I went to the Dodge dealer where I bought it and they would just give me the run around and say it was my problem. That's because I bought the 100 thousand mile warranty and all the other extras, which I ended up paying close to $17,000.00 for the car when I was done paying for it.


TO: Dodge Company/Manufacturers - THANKS FOR NOTHING!

Holy crap, you paid a lot. We bought our '95 Neon Sport in 95 with 18k on it for 10k, and it now has 212k and is still going. No paint peeling and runs like a champ.

The brakes is a Chrysler thing. Our '06 Sebring does it. Some of them do and some of them don't. But it seems like all the things you listed were things you would not expect to see in a high in car.

The Neon had base price of 8k, and even getting the Sport or R/T model would only top it out at around 15k with options at the time. So what do you expect with a car that had a base price of 8k?

Also, I just bought my 3rd Neon, and got it for 500, and put a 100 into it, and it's been a champ.

Oh, also get around 43MPG city/highway. Great little cars.

Plastic piece of crap


Interior lights do not come on automatically, but when you turn them on manually, they usually work.

Air conditioning breaks right after being fixed.

Plug near fuel line has broken twice, spraying gas all over.

Tie rod had to be replaced.

Tilt steering wheel doesn't really tilt.

Inner door (plastic piece) sags and door won't open.

Door gets caught behind front quarter panel when opening (has been fixed twice).

Speed cluster had to be replaced (speedometer went out)!

Console lights turn on at random for a few seconds.

Engine makes a weird noise (loud, then quiet, then loud, then quiet).

General Comments:

This car is a plastic piece of crap.

My 86 Camaro ran better than this, which is amazing since it's ten years newer!

I have spent over 1000 on this car in the last six months alone.

I am in the process of trading this in, because I don't want to throw my money into it anymore!

Where you live? I'll buy it for $200-$500. Neons are great little cars, but you can't expect them to be high in cars.

Oh, and the speedo problem, hate to tell you this, but it wasn't the cluster. Well it was. It was the pins that get the signal. They had bad solder on them from the factory. So all you need to do is take a soldering gun and solder them up (only on the ones you see with cracks forming). And its easy to take out. Just lift up on the top and then it's 4 screws holding the cluster in, and then just pull. And then its maybe 10-15 screws total holding the circuit board to the cluster. Take those off and pull (gently), and then on the other side you can see the pins. And then just solder them up and you're set.
