2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Well-rounded performance, period!
Handling is very good.
Brakes are excellent!
Vicious power!
Good-looking interior (except the door
plastic).
Zero defects.
No squeaks or rattles on my car!
Only the Mach 1, WRX(& STI), and EVO
provide similar, but less "bang for the
buck". Then you need to move into the
$45,000 range to equal or surpass
performance. The Mustang Cobra is
around $38,000, but the stock handling
and brakes are no better (maybe worse).
Dodge does not advertise this car. Not
many on the road where I live.
Only "gear-heads" know about the car.
Therefore, strangely exclusive.


Best Features

If you don't like the viper seats, get the R/T seats with the side airbags (it's an option). The exhaust is fun! Not too loud on the highway in 4th or 5th gear. Practical - 4 doors, trunk, good gas mileage(considering the power). Limited slip (04 model) is a significant improvement


Worst Features

Upgrade the plastic on the doors. Short-throw shifter should be standard. Front and rear strut braces with bigger sway bars (it can be done for about $300). Refine the drive-train (i.e. remove clutch vibrations, better engine mounts, etc.)

Review

Awesome bang for your buck performance
ride! Already three months old and I
still get an ear to ear grin everytime
I get into it. With just a few minor
performance modificatons (provided by
Mopar), my car is already putting down
280hp to the wheels.. I just can't get
over the fun to drive aspect of this
car! I definitly think there is a
direct correlation between my right
foot and a smile on my face!


Best Features

Love the pure speed out of this car.. I have test drove STi's, Evo's, and 350Z's, and still feel this car is more fun to drive..


Worst Features

Better turning radius, and also better fuel economy..

Review

This thing is a rocket. Everyone I have
taken for a test drive says the same
thing. "Oh my god!". I have teken a
couple Corvette owners and Mustang
owners. They all very impressed with
the acceration. This car is the best
bang for the buck value around in my
opinion. While the Viper style seats
are tight, They are comfortable. I
think the interier is just as good as
the imports, dispite all the critics
comments. I would recomend this car to
anyone who is looking for a fun vehicle.


Best Features

The power, the sound of the exhuast, the looks


Worst Features

The turn Radius is terrible, Wider tires.

2004 Dodge Neon SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

It has a lot of pep for a 4 cylinder.
It has a roomy back seat. Front seats
are comfortable and visibilty is great
for a short person like me. I like the
tilt wheel and automatic door locks.
The air conditioning is very efficient
and the service I receive from the
dealership is excellent.


Best Features

Tilt wheel,seat belt height adjustment (I'm 4'11 inches tall). Easy dash board to control.


Worst Features

Some bolts and screws are visible. I think they should be covered.
