Of the two Neons I have owned, both are as dependible as a stone. I really like the looks inside and out compared to the Calibur. It is much better looking then the Calibur, and looks more aerodynamic.
A much slimmer, more aerodynamic exterior. It is lower, has a lower front end which makes it look like it would get better gas mileage.
The interior is very comfortable and I like the way the dash is styled. It is more flowing and very well laid out. I like the access to the trunk thru the back seat.
It has 4 wheel anti-lock brakes, two front airbags, and automatic trans works better then any other automatic I have had in a very long time.
The brakes are in all honesty, incredable. This is the fastest stopping car I have ever owned. The anti-lock works perfectly. The car is very strong. The 2003 Neon I used to own was rolled 5 times and the roof never caved in. It was as strong as can be.
