I'm now a Mopar man

Well, sort of. The Punk Hoe wasn't working out with gas prices and everything, it just wasn't worth keeping, so we went looking around at a few dealerships and Dwayne Lanes (that's right, I'll name drop) was willing to strait up trade it in for us....actually, by the end of everything, THEY owed US money. We got a brand new, 05 Neon (been sitting on the lot for a while because people have been wanting the Calibur, which to me feels like a minivan)
Well, onto the Punk SXT.....



The thing came fully loaded, included was a complete Kicker system, WITH 10" sub and amp...


I'll get more pictures when I can. Tina has already got dibs on picking out rims and stuff to do to this beast.

It was either a brand new, loaded neon (only 81 miles) or a VERY base model used vehicle. We got a very good deal on the trade in, and ultimately it was my wife's decision. It's suprisingly quick. It would probably keep up with my cavi, or be pretty close.

Yeah, we had to get rid of the Tahoe. It was sad to see her go, but right now, I don't have a job at all, so gas prices are really killing us, plus, we don't really do anything where we need something that big. If I need a truck, I can borrow my neighbors.

I bought a 2003 Neon brand new and traded it within a year because I hated it so much. The interior was boring and the exterior looks like most other compact cars to me. Traded for a 2002 Grand Am GT fully loaded. But if it does everthing you need it to do, that's great. Mine did get awesome mpg when I wasn't beating on it

Also, the front rotors tend to warp and the brakes will start to squeak after a few months. It wasn't just mine, it's a Neon thing.

Thanks for the heads up. I don't know if that's just most stock breaks or what, because the brakes on my Cavi, Firebird, my friend's Malibu, and my ex's Cavi all warpped after a month or so. I plan on changing the brakes out anyway for higher performance rotors

I brought my neon back to the dealership at 8 months for the rotors and they just turned them. I worked for a dodge dealer, and those two things i mentioned are just the nature of the beast. I didn't hold on to my car long enough to find a way around it. Good luck!

My cavy, my mom's lumina, my gf's regal, and even my silverado all have warped rotors...

The only thing I don't like is how amazingly high the rear ends on the new Neons stick up.

Spoilers are an OPTION. You can get a fully loaded vehicle without a spoiler

And Link master, that's what lowering kits are for

So you don't have the obnoxious power windows in the front with the crank windows in the rear then? I can't imagine it would have affected the overall price of the car that much just to make all four windows power!!!
