I bought my 05 Neon because of it's infamous value. The car turned out to be much more than just an economy car. I added a jet chip for $223.00, aftermarket catback exhaust for $267.00 and a cheap little performance module for $23.00. After only $513.00, my Neon went from 132 HP, to 189 HP. Easy HP for cheap. The downside... most aftermarket parts for the newer Neons are very pricey. All in all, I absolutely love this car.
