I owned 00 neon all in all not bad car,but a like my 92 bonnieville a lot better. Those have a huge problem with head esp the 2.4l motors. The trannys could be better.

Kinda like a "life car" to take out in case you blow a tire and need to head down to the nearest service station.
Umm... I don't think the Neon is reliable enough for that task, sorry!

Yeah, yikes. Like I said, we're shooting for gas mileage, and you notice I said we're getting a not we're buying a. It'* been well cared for, and is a gift from his dad. It'* got new tires, new headlight lenses, new wipers, and all of its maintenance records.

That said, I've picked up that it'* unreliable and we're gonna die if we get into an accident with the thing. On top of that, it'* got the mighty 2.0 with 150,000 miles.

Ummm, it'* cute?

What'* the difference between Dodge and Plymouth?




Three letters

I firmly believe they named it Dodge because they wanted to "dodge" all responsibility for building it in the first place.

Uhhh, actually, his family'* had more problems with Saturns than Dodges...and that includes his dad'* Dodge Neon. Frankly, I'll feel unsafe, and I wish we could talk the buyer of the vehicle into MEDIOCRE gas mileage and get a bigger car. We are not the buyer, we are just the receiver of a gift.

I disclaim all responsiblility for the acquisition of said Plymouth, and keep in mind that it'* not my choice to part-own this car. Does the old gift horse saying apply here?

*edit* WOO! I'm in a SIG QUOTE! I feel specialish now.
