1996 Plymouth Neon 2.0 from North America
Watch what you buy, some are junk
My motor blew after 30,000 miles. It is very hard to get parts for it, there are two of the same car - one from Mexico and another from the US.
This car isn't worth what you pay for it. It's a junk car cause there are two different 1996 Plymouth Neon cars. One is made in Mexico, the other is made in the US, and people that don't know the difference, but if you buy the one from Mexico you will not be able to gets parts for it. I know, I've been trying to get a part for 6 months and I still can't get it cause it is the Mexican made car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My 1997 Neon is built in Mexico (VIN begins with 3). I don't believe that parts are different from the US-built Neon. I had a few parts replaced in 1.5 years (instrument cluster board, oil pan, rear main seal, few smaller things) and it was never a problem. All parts (from Mopar) were available in dealer's stock or arrived the next day when ordered.

There is perhaps another solution, get rid of the Neon, have you seen the many other posts on this website? Over 80% of them are due to the same faults. Get a lawyer, find out your state's lemon law details and find yourself into a Ford or Toyota :)
