2004 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #1

Neon SXT 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission

We have had a lot of problems with this car, probably the last Dodge product we will ever own. It started when the trans cooler let loose and filled trans with coolant, had that repaired at a professional shop so i would not have to worry about it. Ran over 100 quarts of fluid through it to clean it out, did filter change and the tested to ensure it was fixed. Big problem with this is that Dodge is aware of the junk that they put in these cars and chose to not do anything to assist with this repair. Now last week we are now lucky enough to have the darn thing get stuck in "limp mode" and again as you research it is a very common default with Dodge and again they do nothing. This just pisses me off since I feel that the damn trans cooler rupturing is what started the downward cycle of the drivetrain. Just to make matters even more fun the company i worked at for over 25 years closed, out of work, no money and this (insert explativer here) car is just the frosting on the cake.

Other issues with this car have been wheel hubs, brakes, sun roof track is junk ($1100 to repair in warranty??? up yours!!), rim leaks on the wheels(almost all Dodge cars) and i know i am forgetting others but to darn mad to think!!

I would not recommend this vehicle or other Dodge products to anyone!! Family member works for them and wants to buy a Ford due to the crap they are turning out, that speaks volumes to me.
