Early in June I had gotten a used 2004 Dodge Neon. Well ended up just this month giving it back.
I should have known something was wrong when we got the car and we went to the insurance place right up the street to add it on to the policy that the battery died in it. Had to call the car dealership to come and put in a new battery. I should of said no right then and there and just gave the car back!
The drivers side mirror was smashed out when we got it, dealership said no problem we'll take some money off the price and we're ordering a new mirror for you right now and it'll be in next week. Never came in even though they "promised" and ordered it about 4 times.
But hey I needed a car and I wasn't going to be too picky at the time.
Well once I started driving on the interstate once I got up to about 60 the car would start vibrating pretty bad in the steering wheel. Had to replace both front tires by time 2 months went by of owning it.
Then the oil alert would alert at times when you were slowing down to stop at a stop light or sign, also oil was leaking in to where the spark plugs sit at.
The last straw was yesterday when after the snow we got started melting I opened my trunk to find about 3-4 inches of water sitting in the trunk where the spare tire sits and the whole carpet was wet.
Needless to say I don't have that car anymore and will be getting another one in January/February and this time I won't be taken for a "ride" and will be looking at everything closely.
Also going to find a car with cruise control, my foot can't take those 12-13 hour drives from Louisiana to NC anymore although the wife thought it was funny when I'd get out and was hobbling along.
