The Much-Maligned Plymouth Neon May Have Actually Been Awesome

People love to dump all over the Plymouth Neon, a cheap, compact sedan that rose to prominence in the mid-'90s. But while Jalopnik writes that "the general consensus of the car seems to be that it was a cheap, plasticky little s**tbox," the gear-headed website thinks it deserves some critical reconsideration. "The Neon was one of the last all-new cars to be unashamedly cheap, friendly and fun," writes Jason Torchinsky. "An unpretentious and very usable little car, with far more style and character than you’d expect. As a bonus, it was quicker and more fun to drive than any little econobox should be."
