Overall Great Car
To be honest, not much has gone wrong with the car. I love my neon, it is a great car. The only thing that has gone wrong is I have a small rod knock, that I am replacing myself very soon. The only reason that happened was because my stupid self believed the computer that tested the oil sensor that said there was plenty of oil in car. Low oil causes low oil pressure which cause's a rod or crankshaft problem. Other than that everything has been perfectly fine.
This car is very fun to drive. Good in the snow (parking lots occasionally).
The car handles very well. Since I was lucky enough to get the competition coupe.
Very Very Easy motor to deal with everything is right in front of my face.
I'm not sure why people spend a ridiculous amount of money on repairs when all you need is a good set of tools a Chilton's manual and patience to fix the car. Trust me most of you people out there will spend a whole lot less money than you do.
The car has a lot of miles and it has the low end motor problem so of course the acceleration is going to be a little groggy sometimes. I've been taking it easy because of the low end problem, last time I got on the car it took off very responsively and I was shocked to get such power out of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
