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.
bought this car in march of 2003 and is very reliable. changed battery and anti-freeze in 2008 only because they were 5 years old. replaced tires in 2010 at 45000 miles with generals..gets 29+/- mpg around town. have had no problems except regular mtn...has a/t a/c pw bra pw ste pw wind pw locks cd player. a friend i work with offered me 5500 dollars for it, not bad since i paid about 11000 for it in 2003
