Overall, not a bad buy
The Engine Computer (ECU) went out recently. It was telling the #4 fuel injector to stay open all the time, so it was flooding the engine with fuel. I understand I am not the only one who has had this problem with the Neon SXT. Fuel actually got into the oil, so that needed to be changed also.
The headlights blink badly when the AC kicks in. Very bothersome at night.
The Brakes squeal like somebody stepped on a cat.
Other than the ECU acting up and costing me $700.00 to fix, which I think should be a dealer recall, the car has been reliable from day one. I truly had few complaints about the car that I cannot live with. Its great on gas and handles quite well for a small sedan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
