1998 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #4

Neon 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 46,124 miles


Sun roof glass came of the track and will not open or close. The track was replaced three times. The sunroof would drag and make knocking noises. The vehicle also experienced a battery problem and oil leaks which had come from the cylinder head.

This car was brought brand new and ever since I got it it has been a constant headache. I had had numerous problems with this car as well as other owners of Dodge Neons. I find it very odd and suspicious that these cars have not been recalled to fix their potentially deadly problems. I myself, do not intend to let this go after the thousands of dollars I have invested in this car. I will be a constant thorn in the side to Chrysler if they do not get these cars off the streets where they are endangering the drivers as well as other traveling in other cars. No safety defec tlisted in summary.

For as much as I pay per month on this vehicle, it has been nothing but constant problems. I am a single mom and cannot afford to have my only vehicle in the shop every time I turn around. It seems that most of my problems are common in the Neons. No afety defect listed in the summary.
