1996 Plymouth Neon 2D Base 2.0 from North America
Ran great 14 years ago, runs good today
Developed an oil leak from somewhere around the pan.
Clear coat gone in some spots.
Speedometer and odometer cut out.
Drove it as everyday transportation for 14 years. Unbelievably dependable. Sold it with the original brakes and clutch, at 115k miles. Probably put less than $1000 in maintenance costs throughout the life of the car.
Surprisingly quick, steering was a little sluggish compared to new cars, but a great car for a younger person in school. Cheap to maintain, great gas mileage, and fun to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

As long as you maintain your car, you will have a great Neon. Mine is 11 years old, and is still the best car running.

My Neon is 15 years old. Always maintained and only has 88,000 miles. Have replaced the transmission, head gasket, starter, alternator, struts and power steering rack. The crankshaft bearings and wrist pins are now failing. Can't wait to get rid of it.
