Wow, Just Wow — This car is my all time favorite car. I've owned more then a few and If I could make it happen I would buy another one in a heartbeat. There is something about driving this car and looking at the peoples faces as you blow by them in a Neon on steroids. Good times and great fun

Pros

It handles nice, and is great on gas. Costs are not that bad, and they are not really an eye sore. So to speak. Over all. Has not been a bad car to own.

Cons

Small. Not much balls. Excels slowish, Not much of a man car unless modified.

Over All Impression Of The Car Is Fair. — Like a lot of things. Dislike a little. Its not a bad car over all. It's small to fit in to smaller places. This has came in handy a lot of times. I don't really have to much bad to say about the car. It's not a power car. But it works....

A Day Or Fun And Everlasting Enjoyment — The car is so appealing to the all of the five senses. It feels so powerful in your hands for such a small car, the symphony of notes bellowing from the engine and exhaust make your mouth water for speed. I Love it.

Very Fun Daily Driver And Great For Any Skill Level. — I disliked the price of performance parts and rarity or OEM body parts. The car itself, though was an amazing starter and has seen many roads and states and I love every moment, from cruising to showing off when necessary.

Pros

Great car lots of power and fairly cheap parts for more power, lots of room for a compact sport sedan rides great and drives even better looks cool i have drove this car across the us with no problems multiple times.      All the crap you hear when you beat a "muscle car" Overall its a great car

Cons

You get what you pay for as far as interior.. still looks decent, but things break.

Pocket Rocket! Fast spooling, fun to drive.

Fun, Reliable, Thrasher. — I owned this car for 5 years and it ran great throughout. Although I never spent a lot of money on mods, stock turbo had a lot of power. This car did what I asked it to. I will definetly miss it.

love this car =)

Cons

nothing so far its pretty cheap to maintain.

Drive Before You Judge It =) — power? this car is faster than most cars 230hp with 250tq at least that what the dealer says the cars were a lil bit under rated. acceleration may be a bit for some. braking is 4/5 and handling is better with mods lol my car id get 4/5 stock im not sure. build quality is ok things do look and feel like plastic so it is just ok. most people dont think the car looks good but i do as the srt4 neon looks 10x better than just regular neons. you will be putting high grade gas in this car so that can sometimes be a bit much. parts are cheap cause it being made in america. fun factor? 5/5 i love driving this car its quick enough for me and has a good after market part list.

Pros

This car handles nicely and is a blast to drive. Brakes are very strong and car is comfortable. I am 6 feet 2 inches tall and fit comfortably in the seats. The parts are also cheap!

Cons

People associate the car with the "regular neon" when in fact it is a much different breed animal.

Awesome Ride! — I have owned this car for a little over two weeks now and love it. I and a big guy and fit comfortably in the car. The car is good on gas even though it runs on premium (got 30 MPG on way from Connecticut to NH). The parts are relatively cheap as it shares many things with the "other neons". This car isn't well known by many and most people will underestimate it until they ride in it which is a pro and con, depends on your position I guess. "O it has a wing, what does it have 160 horse? No try 250. O wow." If you don't like hearing your exhaust don't buy this car, or at the least put a new exhaust on it. The exhaust note is vehicle artistry at its finest so if you feel the need to quiet it you probably don't need to be in one anyways.

Straight Up — nice car, good power at low rpm, but to make this car cheaper they cut in some accesories like the electric rear window. But instead of that it's a crazy car to drive it's sure that you'll have fun drivin it
