2001 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 092008


  • Manual transmission
  • 62,000 miles


I understand there is a leak problem with the Neon. The water gets into the car floor ( back and front, on the seats and mainly in the truck. I've hat to keep my car under cover or it gets extremely wet. I'd like to know if other people have had this problem and how it was resolved - I would greatly appreciate it. It doesn't matter how long ago it happen to you. Has then been any class action sue filled against Dodge(Mercury) for this particular problem. Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I'm just adding to other reports of the Dodge neon having interior leaks in rain and snow when parked. When it first happened I thought I hadn't shut the window completely because it was on the rear driver's side floor. I see by the different forums that other neons have had the same problem and I do not understand the lack of responsibility Chrysler has toward this situation. It obviously is a design and/or manufacturing defect. It should have been recalled and fixed. There have been so many people with this issue I think Chrysler should be presented with a class action suit. Not having checked out legal criteria as yet, I don't know if it's plausible. I know I will never buy a Chrysler product again with all the other repair issues I've had with this car. Definitely not as good as a previously owned Corolla.

Neon SE 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission

Most of the leak seems to be fixed by liberal application of rtv where the tail light assembly and body join, as others have discussed, with more rtv used where the channel runs under the gasket. Also, some small amount of leakage appears to be coming from the trunk vent accessible from the trunk interior under the trunk liner and located in the right rear lower fender. Possible causes could be a loose or deteriorated seal between the gas cap compartment and the interior of the right rear fender or a deteriorated flap cover assembly on the outside of the trunk vent. I will know for sure when I get a chance to check. The trunk vent may be accessible from the interior of the right rear wheel well.. My haynes manual makes no mention of the trunk vent that I can find.
