1998 Plymouth Neon Espresso double overhead cam from North America
A lemon and a half!
Battery, signal lights cause, high idle, head gasket.
Hi I'm a 19 year old student who bought this car because I needed a reliable car, that was good on gas and would coast me much.
It was just that for the first three weeks. Then when I would make a left turn the steering wheel would make a clicking sound. a few days after this the signal's just didn't work. I took it to the dealer, but there was nothing they could do because it wasn't covered in my warranty.
After that I had to boost it a few times the battery wouldn't hold a charge anymore. But when you have a GM warranty on a Dodge it won't get you very far. So that wasn't covered by either dealers.
Now 5 months and 5000 km after I bought the car the head gasket leaking. I was informed by Canadian Tire that this is a common occurence and Dodge has a secret warranty for this sort of thing. So I went to a dodge dealership to see what they could do for me. But When I got there none of them new what I was talking about. Go figure, after calling them everything under the sun and leaving my rubber on there parking lot. I found theres nothing I could do from my city dealer so I'm going o call the head office and tell them what I think of their service.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
