Spark plug tube seals fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.

The sunroof may open only to the vent position and close, or it may open to the vent position and get stuck.

2003 Dodge Neon Reviews
I got my neon a year and a half ago now with 55000 miles for 3500$. very pleased with the deal i went a year and a half trouble free with just regular oil changes, this summer the transmission failed at about 76000 miles because the trans cooler was integrated into the radiator and it cracked and began cycling coolant through my transmission. ball joints and control arm bushings, probably partially my fault as i do enjoy the excellent handling for an economy orientated car. gas mileage could be better, but cant complain at mid to high 20's for MPG. interior is plenty spacious but the cd player can be temperamental. the body has held up excellently after 7 years of michigan winters and heavily salted roads, just 2 or 3 spots of rust along a few scrapes on the rocker panels. just had overhaul the rear drums because of a failed wheel cylinder that leaked all the brake fluid out all over the brake assembly every couple of days, front discs need work, the rotors are badly warped but pads seem ok for now. problems like any other car but i am still very pleased with my neon.
I have driven this car for seven years and it still has the original battery and tires. No repairs except oil changes. Mileage is good.
Still only have 28000 miles but so far its a very dependable car.
