I used to be able to find this but I can't find it anymore. I know the 95 Base models were/are the lightest Neons (besides the 95 ACR) but how much do they actually weigh?

yeah Neons don't weigh all that much. I know my highline weighs around 2400lbs (+/-50)

Gross Vehicle Weigh Rating is how much the car can handle fully loaded with the payload.

Take gvw and subtract the max cargo/ passenger weight, that will give you an aprox. vehicle weight.

I was thinking a curb weight between 2,400 and 2,700 lbs for a fully loaded. What is curb weight again? Vehicle empty, but with stock components like spare, jack, fluids topped off and half a tank of gas, or something?

I dropped 200 lbs overtime..i didnt really feel anything..but when i have somebody in the car..i notice it..so im sure just use that analogy. If the car weights 1900, take a driver..nothing else..no more weight..im sure its a rocket. Well..a Neon rocket.

There is a weight chart in the archived posts. It depends on whether it is a base, highline, sport, coupe, sedan, and acr. They all show different weights.
