I have a 1995 Dodge Neon. I have had problems with my transmission, etc. And had to have my transmission rebuilt, also replacing my head gasket, resulting in a great deal of money out of my pocket. My mechanic informed me they have seen nothing but problems with the Neon. I have talked to several other people who have had or currently own a Neon and they have had the same problems. There has never been a recall noted on the Neon for the transmission problems.

Transmission defective. When put into reverse it made a loud banging noise. Shifted harshly from second to third gear. The head gasket blew and had to be replaced. The brakes squealed for no apparent reason. The camshaft seal leaked oil and had to be replaced. Also, the valve cover gasket had to be replaced because of an oil leak.

Have had the car (1995 Neon) about 1 year - only had 61,000 miles on it and major transmission problems - transmission slips, in rain acts as if the car is going to stall or completely shut off, gets no power in wet conditions either.

The month I bought the car I had to get the motor mounts replaced and the transmision. The motor mounts were busted and I shouldn't have been driving the car on the transmission. Since I bought the car the paint job has been peeling. I have no paint on the roof. I had to sand down what was left and primer it. The rest of the paint on the car is peeling everywhere. Recently the gauge cluster went out. When I would turn on the car the gauges wouldn't do anything. Then it stopped, now the speedometer won't move along with the odometer. So I have no idea how fast I am going. Last, whenever I get out of my car from driving it smells like someone farted, I have a constant check engine light that tells me its the O2 senser but it's not we tested those. The catalitic convert is bad on the car and I have to replace it.

Vehicle would fail to shift into reverse when weather is cold outside. Previouse owner had transmission rebuilt for same problem in 1995. Owner now had transmission rebuilt for hard shifting into reverse. Insurance company refused to cover due to design flaw from manufacturer. The manufacturer is not covering eventhough a new updated part is available. According to third party mechanical inspector it was founding that there was a material failure to the forward piston seal due to a design flaw from the manufacturer. The insurance policy does not cover design flaws.
