this is my wifes car it is a 2003 dodge neon SXT we have had it for 3 years and it has always mad a noise that i thought was just a exhaust leak. recently it started making a whining noise i took it to a mechanic and they said it was the power steering pump pulley, i took it to a different mechanic and they said it was the alternator bearings so the alternator was replaced, the sound stopped. about a week later it started making the same sound so i talked to the mechanic again and he said its the water pump. im tired of getting fucked over by mechanics. both belts were replaced as well, so i know its not that.
2003 Dodge Neon Sxt — Please see Pros and Cons.I really like it because it gives you good MPG and was a perfect car as a college student. Did not have much cargo space, but enough to keep golf bags, clothes, etc. 5 CD inserts served me well as a huge music person.
