neons

is there any particular reason for all of the hate on neons? i mean they compare fairly well with the focus. but what is the difference between dohc and sohc? i think the neon has sohc but i'm not sure what the difference is. thanks.

I think he's talkin bout Dodge Neons, not neon lighting GMISVT. And dohc is dual overhead cam and sohc is single over head cam.

well, both the focus and the neon have a SOHC and a DOHC option. i was never a big fan of chryslers in general. had too much bad luck with them.

SOHC= Single Overhead Cam. means one cam works all the valves

DOHC = Dual Overhead Cam. means car has 2 cams. one works intake, other works exhaust. generally means you can have more valves which is always good.

yes, but not all DOHCs are zetec.....


SVT is DOHC and PZEV is DOHC, too. only the SPI is SOHC in a focus.

I dont like Dodge, but I dont recall reading any hate on them either. I could be wrong though, might have been a thread I over looked. lol

I think my first "hate" of the neon came with that stupid "hi" marketing when it first came out! It screamed slow stupid chick car!

It then continued because of young punk kids buying them and thinking they are fast beacuse it has a couple of racing stripes, or an alum wiing!! grrrrrrrr..

I also can't stand the Dodge interior... Uncomfortable... Crappy layout/controls.. Just doesn't "click" with me!

* I admit the SRT-4's power had me looking... But i couldn't get past the fact that it was still a neon...
