1998 Plymouth Neon Reviews

It's just been a great car...this one is edging up on 200K, so probably nearing its end, but I said that at 140K, and since then it has reliably shipped me from the East Coast to Kansas and back no less than 8 times, to Florida and back twice, transported members of Congress in Washington, DC traffic with the "best A/C on the Hill," and now gets me to either work or school and back 50+ mi. roun...
I love my Neon! It is a great daily drive car & is awesome on long haul trips. Very dependable.
