another neon???? DEFFENETLY!!!!!

Post by dtjackten » Mon Mar 15, 2010 8:22 am

well my credit is not that good, but i am going to try tonight to get financing for a 05 neon sxt at the local dealer.... it is the complete oposite as what i got back in 03, it has all the bells and whistles, power everything, sunroof, ac, u name it it has it.... the car is black to, so i will have twins if i do end up getting it.... i am not getting my hopes up as my credit is not all that good.... but they want 7400 for it, it has 53k..... i am just getting sick of dumping a MASSIVE amount of money into my spirit, it is just getting to be a waste of money and strapping me even further for cash... the problem with getting this car is i may not have the money to get the last part of my 02 done..... i need the injectors and at 350 for the set i just dont know where i am going to come up with the funds......

time will tell, i am heading to the dealer after work..... we will see....

Well, you need a car to be able to get to work. So at this point if your Spirit is on the downward slope I would definitely consider it a good investment to be able to get to work and make money!

Same here with my 04.

Plus with my 04 you would get the best color ever.

^Do either of you have less than 53K on your car though?? :lol:

I bought my '03 in '08 for $7500 with 39,000 so I don't think that's a terrible price for a CLEAN car like this/mine

the best part is the gave me a grand on paper for my pos spirit.... HAHAHHAA, i must say, driving this neon compared to my other one is different..

my gf has already noticed me looking at the non excistant boost gauges and fuel pressure gauges.... the clutch is totaly different... and the sweet stock custom long throw shifter is kinda a bitch.... haha

the other thing that is taken me a while to get used to is looking in my rearview mirror and seeing the spoiler.... lol

all in all the car is great! everything works great and rides nice... (but alittle to high for my liking) :lol:

No adjustment, 75watts I think. I love the kicker system in my SRT. Nice find! All those options though and no fogs....that baffles me.

the five speed honestly sold the car for itself.... then with all the options, sterio being the other big one... it was pritty much a done deal......

My 04 has all the available options minus the spoiler, fogs and cruise but it has the premium wheels and other such goodies. I love the way mine is optioned. Mine is black as well so it suits me well.

OP, I'd get yourself a SRT-4 steering wheel for cheap and toss it in there for some added fun.
