1995 Dodge Neon High Line Sedan 4-door 2.0l on 2040-cars
Pompano Beach, Florida, United States
|I am not exactly sure if the engine is SOHC or DOHC so if that is important to you, PLEASE be sure to check with me, and in the meantime I am going to try to find out.
The vehicle has a clear title BUT I do not know where I put it. I will sign whatever paperwork is needed for you to obtain title, at your/winning bidder's expense, and you need to follow up on it.
The car ran as of a couple of months ago. I did not start it today when deciding to list it, and I suppose with such an old vehicle that could change at any time anyway.
I have been keeping this car as a back-up emergency car, but decided to get rid of it since I don't want to pay the insurance on it any longer. It always ran great when I was using it regularly, even after it was in a slight accident (another driver hit my vehicle on the rear passenger side, as can be seen in pictures. I decided not to repair it at the time. Repeat, this vehicle has been in an accident.
The car is old and rusty and not the original paint. The plastic inside is old and cracked. It has front power windows, but they no longer work. Power locks do not work either. Cassette player/radio does not work. Air conditioner never really worked, that is probably the newest area in the vehicle as I had it replaced a few times, along with many engine components. Air bags, I never had a chance to try out the airbags, but they are so old they probably don't work either. Cruise control, I had that repaired 6 years ago (give or take 2 years) and did not use it often so not sure if it worked the last few years or not.
I would say the only reasons to purchase this vehicle is for spare parts, and the parts I think may be salvageable are engine parts and manual transmission. But I am no expert so don't take my opinion as fact. Feel free to ask any questions, which I will try to answer as best I can.
The auction needs to be paid within 24 hours of closing else the transaction is null and void and I will re-list.

You ever hear a story and start cringing before you hear the end because you know how it's going to turn out? That could very well have been the case with the story from a few weeks ago in West Valley City, Utah, where a 14-year-old kid stole his grandfather's Hyundai Veloster and took it for a joyride - through a park full of children. But instead it turned into a heart-warming tale of heroism and a community banding together to do what's right... and then some.

Bryson Rowley was that hero who identified the danger and, rather than sit idly by and watch the joyrider potentially run over a child, got into his truck and drove it into the menacing runaway hatchback. The collision caused some $7,500 to his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, but instead of getting stuck with the bill - one which his insurance may very well have refused to pay since the crash was, technically speaking, intentional - his community pitched in a helping hand.
Bryan Ellison, who owns West Valley Carstar with his brother, saw the news on television and wanted to help. So he brought Rowley a rental car, picked up his truck and brought it back to his auto repair shop. People from around the community donated parts, and when all was said and done, some $15,000 of work and upgrades were performed on the Ram that was returned to an overwhelmed Bryson Rowley better than new. Watch the video below for the full story.
Watchers of the auto industry will notice a theme among the formerly bankrupted American automakers, General Motors and Chrysler. There are the post-bankruptcy vehicles, and the pre-bankruptcy vehicles. The former, in the case of Chrysler, include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as the 200 and 300. For GM, there's the Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet Impala and Buick Encore, among others. These vehicles have the freshest styling, with sharp exteriors and well-crafted interiors, as well as advanced powertrains and well-sorted chassis.

As for the pre-bankruptcy vehicles, they tend to be easy to spot. Most suffer from inferior driving dynamics, cheaper interiors, poorer fuel economy and often homely looks (we know, there were some decent cars before the bankruptcy, but they were pretty heavily outweighed by the bad ones). Think late, last-generation Chevrolet Impala or Chrysler 200. Increasingly, though, we're seeing vehicles that split the balance between pre- and post-bankruptcy. Vehicles like the Dodge Journey.
The Journey debuted in 2007 as a 2008 model year vehicle, meaning it should fall into the latter category. But heavily breathed upon in 2011, it now enjoys a new, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, a big, critically acclaimed touchscreen display and in the case of today's tester, a new-for-2014 Crossroad spec.
The Dodge Dart, Cadillac XTS and Lincoln MKS all failed to earn a "Recommended" rating from Consumer Reports. When it came to the compact Dart, the organization's testers thought the vehicle offered a quiet cabin, solid-feeling chassis and nimble suspension, but the new model ultimately fell short of the coveted rating due to powertrain issues. The institute's reviewers found the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to be underpowered and noted "drivability issues" when the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four was paired with the optional dual-clutch transmission (some of our editors disliked it paired with the six-speed manual). CR also dinged the latter powerplant for sounding "raspy." For what it's worth, we think the forced-induction engine offers an excellent and playful exhaust note, but that's just us.
As for the XTS, CR lauded the car for its luxurious cabin, but the vehicle's experience was dulled by its finicky CUE infotainment interface. Overall, the big Cadillac scored much higher than its cross-town rival from Lincoln. While testers found the American luxury sedan to offer a quiet ride and quality fit and finish, they felt the MKS delivered a "cramped driving position, ungainly handling, uncomposed ride, and limited visibility." Ouch. At the end of the day, both cars fell short of rivals from Japan, Germany and Korea. Check out the full press release below with more details, along with CR's musings on the Chevrolet Spark and Lexus ES.
