2 yrs, 30k miles, still love my SRT-4
By Scott on
2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
This car was bought as my daily driver after I moved to the UK. Stock it has great power and handling. After about a month though modified it slightly. Increased hp/tq. Now it is my daily driver and track car. I take it to the track atleast once a month & put down over 300 hp & 350 tq (13.0 sec at 110 mph in 1/4 mile) on stock turbo. Mods are fairly priced. So far this has been the best car I have ever owned. 2 yrs, track days once a month, over 300 whp and you know what the best part is, it runs with zero problems everyday. Reliability is outstanding. People joke about "it's a Dodge" or "it's a Neon" but in the end my Neon is more reliable than their own cars.
Turbocharged, 4 doors, decent gas mileage, interior is pretty good for less than 20k car, decent layout, lots of storage, and 3 cup holders.
Slightly leaner tune, wider tires (atleast 7" wide), Mopar Stage 1 springs should be considered standard, full size spare tire
