"I have had this neon for almost a year now. I paid $6000 for it with 39k. power everything,(not rear windows) The 05 neon comes with a sickk sound system (stock). The car has a 140hp (stock and very light) so it may be quicker than you think. This car is easy and cheap to mod. The handling on this car is the best part; this car hugs the bends... So if you want a nice car that you can redline, and still get 30mpg.. Get a neon"
"I purchased a blue 2003 Dodge Neon from a private dealer. I purchased the car with 229,000 miles on it. I collected roughly 60,000 miles on. Overall, not a bad car. I loved my baby blue (first car and it was blue hints the name). Sadly, got rear ended and they totaled it. I had so many issues with the car its hard to know where to begin. My engine always raddled when idling.. especially at a stop light. The car fixing place told me that neons have a tendency to do it. Transmission seemed to try to fail several times, but always kept going. I loved my car!! It was my first car, bought it for 3,500 bucks. If your going to by a dodge neon, make sure it has less than 100,000 miles on it. that way you know how its been taken care of. Loved the car tho, Ive learned so much through the experience and I could probably diagnose problems with any other car I own just because I had so much money put into the car. It got me from point A to point B..."
Pros: "GREAT GAS MPG, Reliable, Comfortable, Fun To Drive"

"I received my 2001 Dodge Neon in May 2012, and I must say that I absolutely love it. At first, I did not expect this car to last more than 4 months, but it has proven me wrong! I've taken numerous trips from GA to AL(college) and even took a trip from GA to VA, and the car had NO problems. This car is a good one AS LONG as you take care of it(i.e. proper oil changes, check car tires, etc). The sound system is good and the size is comfortable. Most importantly, for the travelers, it gets GREAT GAS MILEAGE! The ONLY problem I can think of is how low it is to the ground(easy to scrape), but it is avoidable! I love this car and it is a great first car. I plan to keep it until I graduate from college."
