Default question..... (looks at HypnoFrog/Sweet Tooth)

Im looking at buying a 97 Dodge Neon with a 98 Neon Motor (2.0 DOHC), $1850, motor has 50k and car has 80k.

My question is not should I buy it, but have any of you hear anything positive or negative about late 90s Neons?

I had a 98 neon. They Rocked

Bought it for 6,000 with only 476 miles on it. some idiot couldn't pay the car so he tried to torch it....... closing the door with the windows closed

They are really good IMO. Never had a single problem with it and they run pretty fast.. The radio on those cars is pretty powerful too. I used the factory radio wth 4 12" woofers and an amp and the factory speakers as mdrange and tweeters and it sounded ike a high end radio. I sold it to my aunt and she still has the car and so far only one minor problem wic was the radator blew up but by wear and tear.

And nobody I know that owns a Neon had a mayor problem with it other than wear and tear.

Ive been reading that 97 Neons had steering, brake and insulation problems. They also had head gaskets blowing all the time, which im not concerned with since this motor is a 98.

Hear any of this before?

I got a 95 Neon in 1999 and still drive it. About a year after I bought it, the timing belt broke and the motor got pretty fucked up. It was about $1000 to fix, and since then it's been pretty dependable. I think the heater quitting is the only other issue I have had.

The price seems right and it has less miles than mine did when I bought it, so I would give it a chance.

Nope. In fact the only problem the 97 Neon had was the Air Bag sensor and thats about it.

Heads went out, so I sold it.

I loved that thing though.

I got to drive the car and well.....my 64 Chevy Truck brakes and handles better. So I will not be buying the Neon.

I got Soda Girl to post.
