2001 Dodge Neon Review

2001 Dodge Neon Review

Pros

  • Large interior, competent handling, attractive interior/exterior styling.

Cons

  • Noisy engine, archaic three-speed automatic transmission, lack of feature content in standard trim.

What's new

The Neon R/T and Neon ACR, both models sporting a 2.0-liter 150-horsepower engine, make their much-anticipated return this year. Side-impact airbags and leather seats are now available in the 2001 Dodge Neon, as is a new interior color and four new exterior colors. An internal trunk release keeps young and old from being trapped in the Neon's cargo hold, and four new option packages, one of which includes a four-disc in-dash CD player, further widen its appeal to buyers seeking an American-made economy car.
