The Dodge and Plymouth Neon were redesigned for the 2000 model year. The
Plymouth Neon was dropped after the 2001 model year, and the
high-performance Dodge SRT-4 model was added in the 2003 model year. Both
the Dodge Neon and SRT-4 were dropped after the 2005 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement wasn't well controlled. As
the dummy moved into the airbag, it also moved toward the driver door,
which had bowed outward, and its head approached but didn't hit the window

during the impact the steering wheel broke off from the column.

Forces on the left femur indicate that injuries to the upper leg would be
likely. Forces on both tibias indicate that injuries to lower legs would be

Dodge Neon Transmission Drain & Fill
Just figured I'd record myself changing the trans fluid on my 00 Neon.
Directions: Jack up car on pinch weld, set jack stand, set oil catch pan
under transmission and remove drain plugs with 15mm socket. Once fluid
drains, replace drain plug and remove Fill plug with your hand (But could
you pliars and access it over the drivers side wheel). Use Siphon Hose or
long funel to pour 2.5 quarts into the fill hole, put cap back on and your
done!!. Go do your local dodge dealer for the trans fluid.
