2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4 SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I bought this with the ACR package and from reading the other reviews, I am glad I did. 7 inch rims, adjustable struts and the ACR seats. Home-run! Mods are everywhere. I have a short-throw shifter that really improved shifting. This car takes curves with no sliding or squeal. It's a sports car, so to complain about ride would be an oxy-moron, your teeth will get rattled.


Favorite Features

Engine, handling, the look on other sports car owners faces... from the rear-view mirror!


Suggested Improvements

Cruise control, more modern stereo (MP3).

Review

I also drive an '01 Mustang GT and I must say that driving this car is almost as much fun and maybe sometimes more so. I bought this car for a fun daily driver and that is what it is. It is fast for sure and easy to modify. There are many parts available to make this car a Corvette killer! For the price of this car, the performance can not be beat hands down!


Favorite Features

Turbo power, features, guages, exhaust note, handling, good gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Cruise control, wider tires, different wing, lower the car, tighter shifter.

Review

I've wanted this car since it was a concept, and I will say that the production car seems even better, if only because of the turbo. There are so many things to appreciate about this car: fantastic power curve, LSD, decent (but stiff-legged) suspension, the exhaust note, the excellent aftermarket support, even the mileage (27-29 mpg on average for me) has been very good for a car of this type. I have very few serious complaints about this car, except that I wish it were lighter and handled as well as my '96 Neon, but that car has Koni adjustable struts - unfair comparison. I could have ordered an '06 ACR, but I didn't feel it was worth a nearly $3K permium over my car; paid $19,7XX for mine.


Favorite Features

The Viper-based seats, the engine (obviously), the body kit (except the wing)


Suggested Improvements

Offer a wing-delete option, stiffer bushings in the shifter and suspension, lower the car about an inch, 215mm wide tires

Review

When I first bought the SRT I was excited to get it on the road. I walk into my garage and open the driver door and climb over the highly bolstered seat. You turn the car on and you feel a rush of power and hear a beautiful deap throaty exhaust. This car goes like no other in its price range. Very quick, flooring the throttle and flattening your kidneys an seeing the cars next to you shrink in the mirror never gets old. A great car for the money. Handling, acceleration and a fun ride have never been so easy to obtain for so little money. A great car for what its built it to do, drive fast


Favorite Features

Exhaust note is deep and sounds great. Seats hold you in well. Acceleration is very quick. The brakes stop on a dime and never give up. Suspension handles well for a FWD car. The price


Suggested Improvements

Transmission feels like it came out of a semi truck. Exhaust note can get annoying with its buzz after a while. Seats become irratating on long drives. Rear windows roll down. It looks a little too much like a Neon rent-a-car

Review

SRT-4 delivers more than anticipated, and with all of the mods you can buy make this car fun and exciting. It's very loud and very aggressive. Handling is very well. Drop the car about an inch or two will make the handling even better. Car is an awesome car that delivers as promised, and the gas mileage is really good. On average I get about 25 miles per gallon in the city and about 32 miles per gallon on the highway.


Favorite Features

The exhaust and BOV sounds, and the mods you can buy.


Suggested Improvements

Drop about an inch at least. Bigger rims and better handling tires, mopar exhaust and mopar BOV.
