My First, And Only Car

I got my Neon in 2001. New car and my first car. I still have it. I love it. Honestly, though I have a little bit of a love/hate relationship but it's mostly love. The gas mileage is great. I've never a major problem ::knock on wood.:: It's even a trooper in the snow. Of course I baby the thing. Aside from some hail damage it's basically in perfect condition. Normal wear and tear and the interior could use a through clean but otherwise she's a great car. Of course, it's had regular service when it should. It's only got 67,000 miles on it (today as a matter of fact.) My one complaint is the blind spots but I've learned to live around them. No more losing cars at weird angles at stop signs. I plan on driving it until the engine fails. Difficult to find a 2.0 litre engine in a car that gets that good of mileage these days. I'll be sad when it finally dies. Though, having a somewhat "older" car with a less then perfect exterior is a plus. Someone park wonky in the spot and make the one next to it too small--no problem the Neon fits in and who cares if they dent my door!

I used to have one, was my first car also & never had any problems with it. Now I have a Black Dodge Caravan & I love it, but there's a big different in gaz price between the two...but I'd go back to a Neon anytime.
