A seriously fantastic 'compact' car
My head gasket started leaking at around 110000 kms. Everything else has been standard maintenance that I've put into every car (oil changes, plugs, filters and fluids)
This vehicle is great in every respect.
I am impressed with the fuel economy, acceleration, and comfort.
I have owned a few 'economy' cars and find that this has beat all.
The neon handles like a dream and is extremely reliable.
The cabin in this car is as large and comfortable as those vehicles up to double the price.
The only negative thing I can say, and not negative to me because I love the sound, is the engine and road noise.
It growls when hitting the throttle and rough roads can show the noise the suspension can produce.
Over all, it's a great car and in my opinion, much more than the grocery getter it has been made out to be.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
