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

Dodge Srt-4 Review — Great handling,but lacks in traction out of the hole.For stock internals and able to with stand 18ibs saftly is amazing in my book Plus for the 3 years it was being made it was the fastest car under 20k Over all a great car and dodge did something right when they made this car

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

Cons: --------

Fast, Fun, Cheap, But Still Fwd — If you can keep the wheel hop to a minimum it's a fun car that returns 25mpg if you are not in the boost for too long.

Pros: Cheap and fast. No torque steer.

Cons: Hard to master if you want the best times. Typical fwd understeer.

Best Bang For Buck —

The DOGDGE SRT-4 is one of the best bang for buck cars out there, with an underrated 215hp in 2003 and 230hp in 2004-2005 2.4 L inline four cylinder engine (its actual more like 240-250hp) and at the price of only $20,000 brand new there were few in its time that could compete. with almost no turbo lagg and 250 lb-ft of touqe at only 2400rpm till about 5500rpm the traction of the front wheel drive setup seems to be the bigges problem with this car. Dodge reported the top speed as 153 but many have hit more than 155 stock and 160 with only a stage one mopar kit and and intake and with a 0-60 time in 5.3sec it was second only to the Viper in Dodges line up when this beast rolled onto the streets. Many have been known to underestimate this car saying "oh its only a NEON" but most end up changeing the oppinions shortly after. another popular misconception is that the hood scoop is not fuctional, but it is just not in the convetional way, instead if driving air it the intake it drive cold air to the turbo to help keep it cool at high boost levels. Seats modified from the Viper hold you firmly in place as you take aggressive turns. the suspension is a tad bit lose for my taste but it is still very capable of taking those hairpin turns at descent speeds. With the ability to run the 1/4 mile in 13.8 sec with a capable driver, love it or hate it this is not a car to be taken lightly.

Pros: POWER! 4 doors, aggressive looks, great potential as a race car, bang for buck, viper seats.

Cons: not enough traction for the power, suspension is a little soft, front wheel drive.

Very Fast, Very Fun, But Not That Cool — the clutch is very easy to work, shifts nice, doesn't get many looks though.

Pros: bang for the buck

Cons: you don't feel like you're in anything fast

Great Staring Point For A New/young Car Guy!!! — This car was amazing it's all about performance 230hp, does the quarter mile in 14s and brakes just as fast (as long as you have good tires). The seats are uncomfortable for anyone over 200lbs and the shifter sits to low. Otherwise very fun to drive you'll forget you butt is numb after awhile but you won't psss very many gas stations 10gal tank might last you 250 miies (if your lucky). So get out stretch your legs get in and go again. I personally loved this car and recommened anyone who wants to turn the key drive to the track, race all day and drive home this is your car. Low maintence, reliable drivetrain, and great starting point for modification.

Pros: Performance, Styling, Bang for you $$$$

Cons: Interior room and comfort, Gas mileage, FWD

Fastest Car For Under $20,000 — cant beat the price for the performance of this car. its quick. reliable. appealing and loud. its not your typical tuner. and its domestic which makes it 10 times better. if you have some money and want a fast car go look for one of these. have fun finding one since they didnt make that many.

Pros: cheap. fast. sexy.

Cons: neon chassis and body type. and front wheel drive.

Everything I Could Ever *need* — I have owned several cars in the past, including other Turbo cars (89 and 91 Mazda MX6 GT's). But when comparing the simplicity and responsiveness to lets say, my old corvette, this is a plus! I have the power, and the gas milege. It is a neon, by heart, but a very good car at that. It can take a beating and keep on moving.. I have not had an issue with the car (knock on wood), and from what I hear they are pretty damn reliable for what they car. Features wise, you do loose out on anything bling bling.. but that is not the point of the SRT-4. Its meant to be a fast car, decent in turns, and simple to work on and modify. Still has torque steer, but the LSD will not fail you in hard, fast accelerated turns! A+ to the designers.

Pros: Fuel Econonmy out of boost, Side Airbags and 4 doors (Save on insurance). Aggrisive styling, TuRbO pOwA!! lolz, easy to use features.

Cons: Interior design, handiling is good... but could be better. Wing is not my favorite... but flows with the car well.

It's A Good Car For A Young Driver That Wants A Little Boost. By Nina
