1998 Dodge Neon Sport 2 door 2.0L DOHC 16v from North America
A hole in the ground to throw money in
At 60,000, my head gasket started leaking oil. They replaced it with warranty, however it still cost me $140 to fix.
After that the block heater blew out of it, $300.
The engine was then running rough, they said new plugs wire and high pressure injection purge, aswell as new coil pack.-$600, did absolutely nothing to fix problem.
Ended up being the intake manifold gasket not installed right, and seating itself between the valve and valve seat, causing a dime size hole in valve.
No cost to Chrysler, $1200 to me though.
Oil pan rusted out, needs new exhaust manifold, new struts/shocks.
This car is a lemon.
Chrysler doesn't believe it should last that long because their attitude is you get what you pay for.
Don't buy a neon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a 2-door DOHC sport Neon... my head gasket blew at 40000km, $200, and now all the small annoying things are going wrong. My left turn signal won't turn off, it been broken into 3 times equaling my stereo system of $1000 gone, my windows have broke on each sid as well. They didn't put too much thinking into the frame-less window design... with the length and weight of the doors, every time the door is closed it rattles the glass inside. Pretty much, the dodge neon is a stain in you pants that too hard to get out so you eventually throw the pants away!!
