Dodge Neon

 Model of the car:Dodge Neon
 General comments:I have to admit I love my car(Eventhough its falling apart on me). I bought the car used with 76k on it(neons are known to be 100k cars). Ive had it for 3 years and its sporting a hefty 132k now. Ive had the typical neon problems.. head gasket blew right off the lot, Thermostat twice -by the way the dealerships will charge 76$ for a thermostat fix ( parts cost $12) find a mom and pop shop. I wanted a car that had manual everything since my lebaron was a piece of crap, so I figured I could fix everything cheaply since my father is a mechanic. Good thought, but when a plastic doorpanel costs 250$ and both are broke, it doesnt help much. Ive never had serious problems with my car,shes not sounding too good though. My sister bought a 97 neon 2 years after I did and she has had no serious problems either. My door panels are duct taped to the door and My trunk leaks water, but its a neon not a porsche. Cant be beat for the money and I hear the engines are better in the newer ones. Im trading in my car soon for maybe a golf, I'm hoping VW service isnt worse than dodge(not that dodge is spectacular). I dont take my car to dodge anymore, they want 49.00 for an oil change. Screw that, Im going to Jiffy lube. $29.99, baby! Plus dodge doenst have the service drop off thingie (where they drive you home and pick you up when your car is done). So whether or not you sit in the waiting ro0om its still 4 or 5 hours watching bad broadcast TV. I did have the flange gasket repaired because the car sounded like a volkswagen..ironic that Im thinking of buying one. But overall my "trixie" has pep and spirit and drives pretty good. She doesnt like 60-70 mph, but when the spped limits 65 you can get away w
 What things have gone wrong with the car:Expensive parts for plastic pieces(interior door panels-$250, Quarter panel-$375 (my bad driving, not rust) and doges take all day attitude. 2 cars in the shop and I still pay 4 hours of labor. Doge isnt very good at listening...Took 1 hour to convince them that the thermostat was bad..hmmm lets see car not heating up, no heat runs fine....hmmm what else could it be?
