We have a 2004 Neon SXT automatic. We have 38,000miles on it and the ONLY problem has been a CD player that kept holding on to the CD for a day or so. The CD player was replaced by the dealer under the 7/70. We have had three Dodge Neons. We still have a 96 Dodge neon with 178,000 miles on the original engine. The gas mileage is still about 30mpg and runs real good with about a quart of oil every 3,000miles. Which is what it has always been. Then we had a 2001 Dodge Neon leather, and lots of goodies, we traded it in on a Dodge Dakota truck. We got the 2004 Dodge Neon in July 2004. Believe it or not the 2004 was more than $4,000. less than our 1996 Neon. the car is good on gas 28 to 32mpg. It drives smoothly but there is some wind noise. The black interior shows spots more than our 1996. I would get a Chrysler Service Contract, as no car is perfect and I believe in what the Boy Scouts taught me "Be prepared".
Hope you have many happy miles ahead.

The SRt has a VERY HIGH INSURANCE RATE. Who needs 230 hp in a 2400 lb car? It may run better as far as speed goes, but how long it will last is only a guess. However if you are into speed and have money to burn that the SRT Neon is for sure a eye catcher....and a ticket magnet.
