2001 Dodge Neon SE 2.0 SOHC from North America
Piece of junk
Bought car in May with 8700 miles.
Clutch went at 10,000 miles.
Fuel pump went on July 5th, 2004.
Had to replace transmission in Sept. 04. Dodge representative stated Dodge has never had a problem with their trans, LOL well I have yet to hear of a Caravan or Voyager that went without a trans or axle. Next time I'll buy an import.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

We also had to replace the transmission on our 2001 Dodge Neon Se, which we bought used in the fall of 2004. It would jerk whenever we accelerated, especially when taking off after stopping. It shook whenever we were idling too, so we took it to dodge dealerships and other mechanics and everyone had a different diagnosis. Then, we took it to a transmission specialist. Anyway, we thought by buying a newer Dodge (just 3 years old at the time of purchase), we would save money in repairs. What were we thinking? Next time, we will go back to European cars. We have had to fix more things ($$$) in this car than I ever had to with my 1987 SAAB 900.

My 2001 Neon SE has 220,000 miles, and was brought at 175,000 miles. Since then I've only had to replace 2 wheel cylinders, serpentine belt, and one wheel bearing. Engine wise, this car has never left me on the side of the road, and starts up every single time. As with any car, you shouldn't expect your vehicle to run flawlessly when you fail to keep up regular maintenance.
