2000 Dodge Neon ES 2.0 from North America
Good 'right out of college' car
Water got in the fog lights at 17,000.
Driver's side door latch malfunction at 21,000.
Ignition key housing changed at 36,000.
Factory installed 4-disc changer replaced at 76,000.
At 118,000, tie rods and bushings need replacing.
I really like the car for its sporty look. I got all the cool options such as sunroof, CD changer, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, foglights, alloy wheels, all these for under 20 grand! I get 25 city / 32 highway MPG. It has very good handling and braking power.
The 3-speed transmission needs much improvement. Engine noise is a little loud than competitors, especially on hard throttle.
Seats need more support for long drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
