I have a low compression on #2 engine cylinder. If you have water coming in your car it's from your rear tail lights! The gaskets are made of form not rubber 2" thick??? The cheap way to fix it,, is with making tape and tube of clear 100% silicone calking. Go around the outside of the tail lights, it will last for years. I have 180,000 miles, real nice car. You can get big cars now with 30 mpg for the same price.
Owned this car for ten years now. No problems. It is my favorite car. I can't upgrade, they stopped making these nice cars. I owned 3 neons and loved em all..they are great. Low maintenance, cheap repairs..
I bought my neon in 2006 with 1200 miles on it. It currently has 144000 miles and it has up until this point really not given me any major problems.
2005 Neon SXT Brand new, I'll never buy another DODGE..# 3 cylinder went on engine ( 3 weeks in shop..under powertrain warrenty ) brakes, I paid for them,and shouldn't have at ,tires had to be replaced within a year, AC compressor, and starting sensor all replaced under After Market Warrenty at 100.00 deductible each time, and to top it off the dash started cracking and now has cracked all the way toward steering wheel after 1 year..no one will replace this manuf. defect!!! Oh the car does not even have 47,000 miles on it!!!
I've had this car since November 2007 and I've put a good 50k miles on it since I bought it at 42k miles. Just before 80,000 she wouldn't start one morning, had to be towed to my mechanic who couldn't fix it, took it to the dealer and it would up being an issue with the anti theft sensor that receives a signal from the chip in the key, it wasn't recognising it. Saved $800 by having it be covered under the 80k warranty. Just hit 90k and started having the check engine light come on. Not sure what the issue is, but my mechanic says it will be around $1400 to fix, ouch. I also had the same problem with water leaking into the car, but mine was in the rear drivers side floor in the back seat and in the bottom of the trunk. Havent gotten it fixed but I also say it should be a recall issue.
I have enjoyed my Neon since I bought it new in 2005. The 2 main complaints I have are that the brakes squeal from time to time and I was told that this is normal; and, when there is a heavy rain water puddles inside the passenger front floor. I was told by the dealer repair manager that this is caused from the tail light seals wearing out. He said that water seeps in and follows a channel into the front passenger floor. The repair cost was high and I did not choose to have it done, because I thought it should not have happened to begin with or at the very least, it should have been a recall to have been repaired at no cost.
