1997 Dodge Neon Highline 2.0 L from North America
Head gasket went out at 30,000 miles. It was covered under warranty, and had one of the new redesigned gaskets from Chrysler.
Head gasket went out again at 59,000 miles. Dealer denies any problems with gasket design.
Electrical problems that go away when car is turned off. Air bag light stays on occasionally, but doesn't discharge when in a collision. Ignition sticks in the start position, have to turn it on and off to get it to crank properly.
Passenger window leaks. Wind noise is really loud in that window.
Loud brakes. I haven't had to replace the brakes, except for once in 60K miles, but the brakes have a lot of noise when applied.
The Neon and subsequent dealer service has given me reason never to buy another Chrysler product ever again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
