2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Overall I would have to say I like this car. The acceleration is awesome, but the engine is too loud. Brakes are nice. Shifting is too stiff, and acceleration in first gear is difficult since its FWD. If you accelerate too fast, the front tires bounce so it slows you down a little. The car seems to make some funny noises in the motor which I'm praying are just noise and not an upcoming problem. I had a 2001 Neon SE, and they are very similar in driving (except for the turbo). It kind of scares me though, since after 70,000 miles the Neon SE began losing power and the brakes got worse.
The turbo, front air intake, brakes, and viper seats.
Fix the engine noise, adjust the shifting, and make it AWD or even RWD. The suspension is a little too tight.
