Thanks for letting the words out that dodge neon 1996 is not very good in quality. I was going to buy a dodge neon, but after reading your words and comments from other, I am not going to buy a dodge neon.
I have a 96 Dodge Neon and I love it, well the brakes do make a little noise, but only when the car is cold and I haven't had any problems and I am at 140,000+ miles.
I own a 1996 Dodge Neon. I have had so many problems with mine I am ready to donate it to the Kidney Foundation and write it off on my taxes next year! Here is just a few things that have gone wrong:
1. Threw a rod at 93k (thanks a lot Chrysler!)
2. Electrical problems: Speed sensor, flashers, door lights
3. Squeaky brakes, bad Cruise control sensor.
I will never buy another Dodge vehicle as long as I live.
My neon is under 30,000 miles, and I am very unsatisfied with its poor performance...electrical, squeaky brakes, head-gasket blew among other things that go bad with it. The worse thing is that I am used to V8s and work on engines, this 4 banger is just a pain to work on. I think they used super glue to hold my pulleys together. Never again will I buy a dodge or a Chrysler, Plymouth even if it was given to me I would donate it to the monster truck foundation.
I recently purchased a 2000 Dodge Neon, I have had dome light problems since then, I cannot find the problem, any suggestions out there? Thank you.
I have a 1996 Dodge Neon and I wish I would have done more research on it before I bought it. The car isn't that bad except for the uncontrollable oil leak, the brakes that will not stop squeaking even with new brakes, and not to mention all of my friends know when I am coming because it is so incredibly loud. I will never buy another Neon or Dodge for that matter.
