2000 Plymouth Neon Reviews

a fine car for around town & short trips. It rides a little rough with more than 2 passengers and you can really feel the drop in performance.
my personal experience with this car is good/bad. i love the steering and the acceleration. i hate the fact that it just dies and i cant diagnose the problem without spending 200 bucks to figure out what is wrong!
