    . — Fast, Head-Turner, Turbocharged Performance modifications to date: AGP Wastegate Actuator (tuned to 20 LBS. boost) K&N Air Filter Custom Short-Throw Shifter (approx. 50% Reduction) Digital Turbo Timer "Getting in a race with a neon is like getting in a fight with a girl. If you Win you can't brag about it, and if you lose you hope nobody finds out" Put your foot down, hold on tight, and do nothing but grin as the the turbo gulps in 20 pounds of boost, the G-forces build exponentially, watch the boost guage flicker as you throw it into the next gear at 6000 RPM's with the Blow-off-Valve music to your ears and watch the horizon get smaller and smaller as your tunnel vision begins and the world becomes a blur. Pros: Fun to drive, fast, not your grandma's neon, potential to be done up to 11 second 1/4 mile passes. Cons: It is a Neon, There is no Autobahn in Alberta:( Wheel hop with stock motor mounts, FWD, Made to go fast in a straight line--not corner, tires do not last long, hard not to speed, slip the clutch wrong and you'll go sideways in a trail of tire smoke, its a cop magnet, PTB (Part Throttle Boost) with AGP Wastegate Actuator, terribly dangerous for winter driving. Not fast enough for my liking. My next car will be 425HP at least. Random Stuff: Over 4 months, fuel economy peaked @ 30.87 MPG, and lowest was 11.82 MPG. Average (Mostly City): 21.45 MPG. After a burnout there are chunks of rubber stuck down the entire side of the car- but they wash off easily. Oil changes always Castrol Syntec every 5000 kms. Weekly cleaning includes washing it, Armour-All the interior, vacum rugs, chrome polish exhaust tips, rim cleaning by hand, foaming tire dressing applied. Hand-waxed every 4 months. Irregular repairs since ownership: Replaced TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)

    Srt-4 As A Daily Driver — Very good performance for the money. Easy to mod. No real problems with build quality, more than I expected from something based on a 13k dollar car. It's very fun to drive, even through the twisties. Could use better fuel mileage on the highway, but the small stock turbo spools too easily.

    Pros: performance for the price, easy to mod

    Cons: fuel mileage could be better, some components fail easily like wheel bearings and wheel studs.

    Bill's Srt-4 — You get a lot of power for your dollar in this car. At stock (which mine is), it puts out 230 horseys. Acceleration is good, however the turbo-lag is quite noticeable. The suspension is tight on this car, which makes for good handling in corners, but a rough ride on bumpy roads. The build quality is a bit on the cheap side (it's still a Neon), but that's to be expected at that price point. The outside appearance it's quite nice, with the front fascia getting an upgrade from the standard Neon. However, the wing on the back is a bit much. Being a sedan, it fits 4 people comfortably, and there's plenty of room in the boot. Overall, it's a fun car to drive, and is probably one of the fastest in its price range.

    Pros: Good horsepower, great value, tight suspension makes for good handling in the corners, racing seats, responsive gearbox

    Cons: Cheapish build quality (it's still a Neon), tight suspension makes for some rough rides on bumpy roads

    Great Turbo Neon — Car has very good acceleration for a 4 banger. Lots of top end thanx to the turbo. Mine handles particuliarly well due to the lowering kit. This is a very fun car to drive. Recommended to anyone who wants a sporty, yet cheap car.

    Pros: Turbo, Handling, Gas Mileage

    Cons: Front wheel drive

    It Was A Great Car To Drive And Own. Would Buy One Again If I Had The Chance — It was overall a very fun and dependable car. Performance was the best bang for your buck. The appearance was outstanding and the car was great to drive. The interior was well thought out and i could not of asked for a better design. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants excitement and daily driver abilities as well.

    Pros: It was a sexy looking car, had power, fun to drive, and very appealing

    Cons: The only negative was having to use premium fuel, but with a turbo you have to for the most part!

    I Want This Car — this is the fastest new age car that you could own for under 15k. when i first saw this car (or heard it is what i should say) i looked over and was so suppurised that it was a neon and not some kind of muscle car. this thing is sick, and does things that not many other 4cyl cars can. its only a matter of time before i own one myself.

    Pros: sweet pickup and grunt from the engine

    Cons: premium gas, cop magnet

    Most Fun Car I've Owned — My only complaint is that its FWD. Other than that runs great, good gas mileage at 32 mpg. Good for surprising cocky mustang owners, not to mention STi's, Evo's, s2000's, boxters..the list goes on. all in all a great little car to have a ton of fun with.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: Front Drive

    Teh Neon — The SRT-4 is the best bang for the buck as far as performance is concerned. The motor is capable of high boost and high horsepower without much modification. The car is very fun to drive.

    Pros: Fast, Cheap, Great Gas Mileage

    Cons: Crank rear windows

    I Love My Srt-4!!!! — FUN! i love this car! i wouldnt trade it for any other car! unless it was a really expensive one that i could quickly sell and use the cash to get another SRT-4 with lower miles and use the rest of the money to make it better and buy me a delicious burger from somewhere that wasnt fast food! BUT I DONT KNOW. i have a special bond with this car.... it can not be broken! Performance - this thing is a beast! it has a 2.4 liter intercooled, dual-overhead-cam, 16-valve, 4-cylinder enginerated rated at 230 hp and 250 torque ( although many say its been underrated at 230, meaning the horsepower is actually higher ) put those numbers to a car that weighs 2800 pounds and you get a rocket! speed is immediate! it will slam you back into the seats! braking is awesome! its actually at the top of its class! its actually is using bigger ABS disc brakes that were found on the dodge stratus.... slightly modified! handling is ok in my opinion. it can hold its own but wont win any ribbons anytime soon! luckily there is a lot of after market parts out there that will make it a worthy handler. but its good enough to give me my fix on mountain roads! Build Quality - its a 21,000 car made by dodge! i love dodge but these cars lack the build quality you find from toyota, honda and hyundai. but who cares! nothing major has gone wrong with this car in the 4 years that i've been lucky enough to have it. just normal wear parts. Appearance - either you like it or you hate it! i happen to LOVE IT! Cost of Ownership - take it easy on the gas peddle ( good luck ) and it will return good gas mileage. on a good day i'll squeeze 25-27 mpg highway driving. oh and it takes premium fuel. buying tires for this car is not fun! ( on your wallet! ) cheap tires are not recommended for this car so some good tires like BFG G Force tires will run you about 150 bucks a piece! ouch i know! maintenance isnt bad. especially if you know how to do your own oil change and change out he brake pads. Fun Factor - this car is really fun to drive! i promise! just send me a message if you ever want to take a drive with me! ;) ------- this car isnt for everyone! lets just say this.... this car is a beast and if not given full attention it will bite you on the butt! its fast, its crude and its awesome! lol this is NOT a good first car. this is NOT a car any teenager needs to be driving. this is NOT a car for any person that has ever called a toyota corolla "sporty" THIS CAR WILL KILL YOU! DONT GET IT! ;)

    Pros: Very fast, cheap, great sound, a lot of potential

    Cons: torque steer, in need of better handling

    Pros: Great handling,the top-end is good and for a 4 banger it moves

    Cons: --------
