| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Neon |
| ||General comments:||This was my first car. I figured the since there were so many around, it must be good. I found out real fast how wrong I was. 800 km away from home, the alternator fails. I had the head gasket replaced 3 times and it still leaked a month later. The repair manuals were no help, because you couldn't see anything in the engine. A car theif tried to steal it by using a screw driver in the ignition (luckily it was equiped with a security feature). The fan relay stopped working, and the dealership said the only way to fix it is to replace the CPU ($350)(they didn't mention anything about the recall on it). When the starter failed, I had to have it towed to the shop, because there is no way to get to it. The final straw was the accident. The parts alone were more than the original purchase price. The only Junker that would take it gave me $350.|

Fan relay failed
Easy to get into if you don't have keys.
AC is no good on hot days, it will overheat the car.
Don't expect to sell it.
