I feel your frustrations, everywhere you turn there is no solution and while that is headache enough, then there is the pain of knowing you have to keep looking at it for a while. I'm going through the same thing, its nice to know its not just me.

It sounds to me like you need to stop back-yarding it and take it to a reputable shop. Try the dealer, or hell, even canadian tire sounds like it could give a better diagnosis than you've been provided with.

I crack up every time I read "I'm going to buy a Honda" from some disgruntled American car owner. Our stupid Civic was the biggest piece of junk I ever saw. It was parked as junk at 90,000 miles. If the Japanese spent half as much in building quality cars as they do spreading inaccurate advertising hype about them they really WOULD be able to build a good car.

I completely disagree with the person above.
While it is true every car brand will have its lemons, some have a lot fewer than others. American brands tend to have more than the Japanese, and European more than the others.
Unfortunately you bought a Neon and you should have done your homework before making this purchase. There is no shortage of reviews to tell you how horribly built this car is. Do yourself a favour next time and avoid any Chrysler product like the plague.
Not sure if any of you saw or heard of this, but Chrysler's cars were ranked the 2nd worst in terms of reliability this year, just ahead of Suzuki, by consumer reports. Says a lot about what they think of quality.

Did anyone bother to read the WHOLE review?This person bought the car at 150k, that's high mileage. Then drove it to 300k.Any high mileage car will have issues. If you want less issues, buy a car with less mileage.DUH!

No... I see 15,000 and 30,000. That's not high mileage at all.
I agree on taking it to the nearest dealer or other garage with a good reputation. Ask around and see who your friends use.
