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


Review

I currently own three Neons, a 99, a 99 R/tTand an 04 SRT. The SRT has been the most problematic by far. Problems on the SRT include an oil leak at 400 miles. Now i have 32,000 and it has yet to be fixed; axle seal went at 6,000, numerous computer problems, steering problems, and the most recent problem has to deal with the throttle sticking open. I was very excited to get this SRT since I'm a total Neon geek, however it was a huge let down. The performance is great and it's fun to run at the track, but it would be great if the build and reliability of the vehicle matched its performance. I've owned it for a year and I'm ready to sell. Thanks Dodge.


Best Features

The boost gauge is nice, however I added more gauges on a pillar. That would have to be my favorite feature. Also, the body styling and E-Blue color are great.


Worst Features

Where do I begin! Customer service through Chrysler for one, and this is a lot considering I work for a Dodge dealer. The overall quality and build of the vehicle. Also, it'd be nice if Mopar Performance would come out with more aftermarket Dodge performance accessories for the SRT.

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


Review

This is by far the most fun car I have ever driven. The power is unbelievable and the suspension is very tight while only being a little harsh. The brakes bring you back down to legal speeds in a hurry, which will be necessary if this car is driven like it shound be. The steering is quick but very heavy and a bit on the numb side. Being 6'6" I could use a little more headroom and legroom. It's not quite as roomy as my previous car, a Ford Focus ZX3. The heavily bolstered front seats are actually really comfortable while making sure you don't slide around when taking that "suggested" 30 mph off ramp at 70 mph. Best car buy ever.


Best Features

The amazing horsepower and low rpm torque. Agressive exhaust note. Overall apperance(minus the big rear spoiler. 0-60 in under 6 seconds for about $21,000. Great general driving dynamics. The SRT-4 is not just about going fast in a straight line, it brakes and handles great too.


Worst Features

Make steering lighter like my old Focus. Has large turing radius in parking lots. Shifter is acurate but heavy and throws are a litthe long. Interior room is a little tight but I guess not everyone is over 6 feet tall.

Review

All I have to say is that this vehicle is one fast ride! There is no turbo lag, just sheer power when you need it. Even without using the recommended 91 octane, the car still puts out 11psi of boost and pulls nicely. The handling is excellent and the ride quality is very good considering the abilities of the vehicle. The brakes do an excellent job of stopping the vehicle under heavy braking without ever fading. The exhaust is somewhat loud due to lack of mufflers, but to a car enthusiast such as myself, it's music to my ears. The seats are wonderfully supportive during hard cornering but having the wide side bolsters makes is somewhat difficult to get in. An excellent ride for under 22K!


Best Features

11-14psi of boost from the factory, a real boost gauge, racing-style front seats, front mounted intercooler, kick- ass sounding Kicker stereo w/subwoofer, loud exhaust right from the factory, and nice-looking 17" wheels.


Worst Features

Ride height could be a little lower and wheels and tires could be a little wider.
