    Awesome Car, But Don't Set Your Expectations Too High — Awesome car, fun to drive. It is "all business" though, so don't expect any extra creature comforts. This car is comfortable and does good as a daily drive, but it will leave something to be desired if you are expecting a high tech luxury sport compact. All together the performance of this car far exceeded my expectations upon test driving it. The power is definitely there, even in the low RPM ranges (especially impressive for a 4 cylinder.) The handling is great, and it's a blast to throw around corners. The braking is amazing, it stops from 60-0 in about 116 feet, which is on par with Lamborghini The build quality.... well it's a Neon. That is all I am really going to say here. (cheap plastic, squeaks, rattles, road noise etc...) I think the car looks great, although it is what I call a pissed off teenager car, so it likely won't appeal to the older generations. As far as cost goes, it is pretty high maintenance if you are doing it right. Only take premium, needs new spark plugs just about every oil change. Only use fully synthetic oil (I only used Mobil 1.) The car was very reliable up to 100,000 miles, however the turbo, valve cover gasket and water pump all failed on me at the same time my clutch went out (that part was expected, this is normal for just about any manual car.)

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Great car, just don't expect it to be a luxurious car

    Cons: Not really anything, just not for everyone

    It Sucks — this car is fast but to much money in it. it sucks for a daily driver but I still use it every day. If you have the money to put into a car buy one if not dont waste your time with the Srt-4.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: nothing

    Cons: everything

    Great For Under 20,000 — I love it no complaints, it handles like a import and has the power of a muscle car. i also like the burbs and gurgles and pops it makes when you let of the gas. hope to twin turbo soon!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: great car

    Cons: people say it's just a neon! tell they see it go bye!

    Poor Man Fast Car, Lol — very comfortable, really quick, fun daily, and not a bad competitor at the track. but ready for something new, it is a dodge, so it breaks rather often, lol, "its just a neon." and stock up on zip ties. true

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: comfortable, quick

    Cons: its a dodge

    One Of The Last Cars Thats Raw Enough To Be Modded Without Ruining The Quality Of It — its fun to drive and work on every mod you do to it makes you want another mod and it keeps feeding itself and then u end up with something unlike anything you started with its been an amazing expirience that i would recomend to many

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: amazing car that is fast and affordable

    Cons: if you dont know how to get your own hands dirty under the hood get somthing thats more common

    Great Car For The Price — Awesome little car, will run with the best of them. The build quality is average, starting to show its age with little stuff falling apart. Dodge could of made it look a little more sleeker in the front. The cost to own isn't bad if your not on the gas all the time. Hella fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: speed

    Cons: front wheel drive

    Bottom Line Is This Is The Funnest Car I Have Ever Driven! — I loved this car! This car handled great, specially around corners. Zero to sixty is probably around 4.5 to 5.0 seconds. Fire red with TSW rims. Interior wise it had viper inspired bucket seats. It got great gas mileage, about 30 miles to the gallon on the highway. The only maintenance I did to it was a blow off valve and a cold air intake. This car was a blast to drive and I miss it.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: If you like going fast and love turbo charged cars then this is your car!

    Cons: If you don't know anything about turbo's or tunner car's then I would stay away from car's like this.

    A Modern Day, Front Wheel Drive With The Spirit Of A Musclecar. A Paradox On Wheels. — When this car came out, it was the best bang-for-the-buck under $20k. Still was the best bang for the buck for me when I got it. It's quicker than most people think it is, has 4 doors and a useable back seat and trunk. It gets good gas mileage if I can keep my foot out of the loud pedal (I usually average 23-24 in combined driving).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: That Mustang GT will never see it comin! LOL

    Cons: Torque steer
