Could be any number of different things. As stated above, pull the wheel off to diagnose the problem. Could be a wheel bearing, malfunctioning caliper, or possibly emergency brake problem.

neons use drum brakes i think also i would pull the wheel off and You have to open the brake drum and check the pads and the cylinder, try to clean it with some brake cleaner spray, if don't work replase it. Do it with both drums! if you dont then something will go wrong let me know how it goes>>>>>>>>>>>>>.......
