1996 Plymouth Neon Base 2.0 SOHC from North America
I love her =)
The headgasket went out but another local dealer (not the one I bought it from) Buhler Chrysler Plymouth replaced it in a few days without any problem or hassle. Otherwise only small things that never sidelined me, she has started up every time =
I love the car, they're an addiction kinda like VW bugs, in their own field. They definitely grow on ya.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm glad this person likes their Neon, but mine is a piece of junk - I'm a guy and I'd sooner drive a new Bug at this point. And I hate new Bugs.

My Neon also need to have it's head gasket replaced. I understood that Chrysler had an unpublished extended warranty of 1 year 12,000 miles for the head gasket. My car was under the mileage, but over the time, but I was able to get them to do the job for only $150 (quote was $600). So I think I did OK. You might want to call the regional Chrysler rep and discuss your lack of satisfaction and they can "Cut" deals. You may not get it for free, but at a steep discount. Good luck.

I just recently purchased my neon and it is now 8 years old and still kicked. There is one problem that I have to fix... the front axle. not bad for being 8 years old. Other than that its perfect...

I have a 1996 Plymouth Neon. I got my car from a car auction about 3 years ago. I feel blessed that all I have ever had to replace was an oxygen sensor (when I bought it), battery terminals, battery, tires, a fuel filter and a starter. BUT... my BIG problem is that the paint is peeling. I was told that for a three year period Neon's had a problem with their paint. I was also told that there was a recall on the paint and I could get my car repainted. I have not been able to find any information on this recall. If anyone has any information on this please let me know!

I am having problem with my neon too. but after looking on line for a few hours. and reading the somethings over and over. I notice that a lot of the problems are probibly with the car itself and not the maintenance. but I did find a website its free and you can get the safety recalls for all cars and trucks.
I don't know if I can post it so drop and e-mail and I will send it to you.
