2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Well I've had this car for 3 years now and the thing has held up beautifully. I do enjoy the pick up and go that this car has, but I also like the fact that it has plenty of space for the weekly grocery store trip. On the downside though it is just a Neon so it's not like a BMW in terms of elegance or styling. But for me, I really wanted to have performance at a low cost and the SRT-4 definitely fit that description. So if you're a gear head and want something to build, the SRT-4 is a great place to start. It's relatively cheap and there are a lot of aftermarket parts out there. And after a few modifications you can really hang with most of the bigger guys out there.
