2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Looked at a bunch of cars in this size
range. All of them that had any fun
factor wound up to be at least $20K,
and none of them even came close to
the ride of the SRT-4 (I swear it
would accelerate going straight up).
I've had a number of sports cars in
the past; this blows them away in
terms of acceleration and handling
both. And everyone who knows anything
about sports cars literally drools
over it (I've had people chase me down
on the interstate just to take a
gander at it).
The only drawback is that I now have
to drive everywhere. Everyone and his
brother (and my kids and all my kids
friends and ...) wants to ride in it!
sun roof; easy to find boost gauge,
viper seats, and the kicker sound
cruise control, shorter throw on the
shifter, slightly lower stance
