the 04 doesnt have a limited slip differential where as the 05 does. the interior isnt anything special either but its not terrible. also, if you plan on modding the car the axles are only good for up to 400 hp so stage 1 upgrade is as large as you can really go without dipping into your wallet. other than that though the car is bad ass. very reliable from what ive seen

The last good dodge made before they completely redesigned and sucked. It should be okay for a while, but watch out for the tranny and a/c, some problems experienced on past dodges. Dont expect the world's best reliability, but it should be a good daily driver.

Cons are that the trannys suck, its fwd and its a neon and i guess the windows in the back a manual Pros are that its fuckin quick there are a lot of hot parts and its fairly cheap to upgrade

Only the 03 did not have LSD. The transmissions overall are not bad at all it's the drivers that are the problem 90%+ of the time. The input shaft problem that some people have is from WOT shifting but you can get a device that allows WOT shifting much more safely. There are a few things that if you really beat on the car can be upgraded like 3td gear synchro and a couple other little things nothing major. If you want send me a msg and I can tell you all that you would want to know and more. I have worked on and helped with a ton of them. Also I have the service manual in PDF format if you want it.

Also the axles are fine as well there are a ton of them running in the 11's and at least 3 in the 10's with stock axles. The big problem is wheel hop that will break them. It is a ton better to just buy stock axles then spend the money on upgraded ones. I know dozens of srt's that are driven daily and beat on with 400+whp with no axle issues.

neons are good cars if you don't beat the daylights out of them and don't bring up the k-car or everybody will be bitchin'.
