2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I have seen nothing but good reviews and thats why I bought this car. I have put 7k on it. Turbo leaks are infamous. The tranny is a headache also. Many many people report tranny issues and I'm one of them. This car is a blast to drive but I feel like its going to fall apart anyday now. It has a stubborn transmission and shifts like crap especially in the cold. Maybe I got unlucky.
When not leaking boost, fast car. Beat on Mustangs all day long. It's loud, the kicker system is good.
Bad transmission, Car will leak oil from manifold into intercooler pipe connected through the throttle body. This is a defect from factory. Oil catch can is needed. Stock mounts are no good. Stock wires melt from heat, need aftermarket and plugs, automatic trans fluid used in manual trans. Go Dodge!
