2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I have had this car 4 years and still love it!!! I commute to work 84 miles every day. I have over 90K miles on it. I have NEVER raced it or beat it up. Even so,it DOES get expensive to maintain. The front end/ control arms and bushings wear out (@60K), synthetic oil changes are more expensive, the brakes cost big bucks to replace, the viper seats are SO comfortable, but they are poor quality and the vinyl cracks. Tires are expensive to replace. Shifting isn't smooth. Contrary to most Dodge products, I have very little oil leaking even after 90K miles. I have driven from NJ straight through to MO, MPG has NEVER been better than 24 MPG. Still, I love this car no matter what.
Performance!!! You can't get a better car for your dollar. It is so comfortable. It handles, accelerates, brakes and responds beautifully.
It is expensive to maintain when it gets high miles. MPG is not accurate/ it is 24 HWY MPG at best. It is a little noisy inside.
