Great 1st car.
2001 Plymouth Neon is a great little car. I think the style is great, and looks great if taken car of like mine. I do like the look of the car although I feel like the hood is rather long which I am not a huge fan of. This is a very comfortable car. The seats are great and the head rest is at the perfect place. Although I do feel like taller people have problems in this car with the low ceiling. I feel like there is enough room to be comfortable in the car, but I would appreciate a little extra room in the trunk to store luggage on trips. This car is in great shape only one small rust spot on the side near the rear wheel. The care is a bit loud but that comes with the age. This car goes into the shop often to get check ups, but has had little to no work for broken parts. I believe all costs for this car are as fair as you can get. I really enjoy driving this car, I can get it moving and stopped quickly. Overall I think the handling is lacking but is acceptable. I have always felt safe in this car, and have hardly if ever lost control since I have owned the vehicle.
The Neon was fairly inexpensive and for the first few years performed well without problems. It had a sportier feel to it than other cars that came on the market like the Ford Focus, and a car like the Neon doesn't drain your wallet at the gas pump. It's the kind of car you might want to use to pick up a first date. If your date looks at your car and scoffs at this lower end car, then he or she is probably too high maintenance for you anyway, so just drive right on by. And if they don't scoff, well this is a great car to drive around town in for some fun.

Avoid Like the Plague
I am so glad that I didn't purchase this vehicle myself. My dad got a new car and this one was a hand me down. Unfortunately, it was one I could do without. I got it right under 30k miles, and everything seemed to be okay if a bit generic. The cloth interior isn't great at wear and tear and shows any stain really easily. The exterior paint on mine was red and faded very quickly over less than 5 years of the total life of the vehicle. Right at 30k miles the slave cylinder failed and I had no air conditioning. It was after the warranty that the vehicle had $700 worth of repairs that it required to get back into working condition.
