2003 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Fabulous fun car that is also practical
(4-dr sedan). This is a great commute
car when there are no traffic jams.
Added custom orange and red graphics
(real paint) really dress up this
little yellow sedan.


Best Features

Fabulous acceleration and handling. Great exhaust tone (no mufflers).


Worst Features

Add cruise control.

2003 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car with a manual transmission
cannot pass a gas station without
stopping for a drink.When I first drove
it my gas milage was 16 MPG a far cry
from the sticker that claims 39 highway
& 30 city.By shifting so that I'm
driving in 4th gear at 30 miles an
hour.I finally got 30 MPG but half was
highway in 5th gear & I can Hear the
transmission complain. The dealership
claims that car is within specs and
there is no fix. The key has a computer
chip in it so that I cannot make an
under $80 duplicate & carry it in my
wallet. The radio antenna does not
telescope into the car pillar making
likely to break off,city reception is
poor.


Best Features

Quick and short turning radius. Quick acceleration, if you don't mind the gas consumption. Fold down rear seat enlarging trunk carrying space. CD playing radio.


Worst Features

Decent gas milage accurately posted on window sticker. Reliable, computer chip free, key. Door locks on 2 doors. Telescoping radio antenna, driver powered on driver's side. Larger trunk.

2003 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This car performs better than many cars
that cost much more. It may have the
shell of the Neon econobox rental, but
it's a totally different animal under
the hood. Do not buy one of these cars
unless you want to feel some g-force
while under full throttle. They are
true performance vehicles.

I've had 0 problems with this car. I'm
still amazed after 1-1/2 years of
ownership :wink:


Best Features

Gobs of power and torque-Viper style seats-Very responsive-Good brakes- Tokico Struts-Performance upgrades available from Mopar for an already quick car-No turbo lag-Front mount intercooler-Functional hood scoop- Aggressive stock front fascia and body kit-Factory Pro Comp boost gauge.


Worst Features

Wider tires and a lower stance from the factory would make these cars much more attractive when they're factory stock. The rear wing is pretty big. I'd like to see the resale value for these cars improve to match the higher level of performance and dependability they have.
