we knew better then to buy a dodge they only make lemons. my brother and i both of us are heavy duty mechanics, bought this neon worked fine.... at first.... then it started like it was misfiring or had a sticking valve, checked head. it was fine. replaced computer still runs like a bag of crap. we are into for big money in sensors, computers and so on. we even tried the dodge mechanics they're a joke, if the computer couldn't tell them anything, they replaced a bunch of sensors, charged us an arm and leg and told us it's our problem........ unless some one can help us this peace of sh*t it hits the crusher. as far as i'm concerned with the attitudes that dodge has, i hope they go bankrupt they brought it on themselves. this wasn't the first dodge we owned but it's THE LAST lemon we we will ever lay our eyes on.
