2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 2dr Roadster (8.3L 10cyl 6M)


This car has no equal for its price and performance. I waited for 6 long years to buy a Viper and I was not disappointed. This car is a street legal race car but at the same time, it is no harder to drive than a Honda Civic or a Saturn. There is this thought out there that this car is hard to drive, it isn't - only drivers who don't understand or know how to drive a true sports car. The performance is unbelievable. I understand now why everyone who drives this car has such a big smile on their face. There are certain cars that invoke emotion by just looking at it & this car is one of them. If you are a car nut and you get the opportunity to own one, do it. You will not be disappointed.

Best Features

Lumpy idle. Power/Torque is available in any gear at any time. 1+ g rating is excellent - car handles very well in most conditions. Easy to use soft top. Casual conversations that come about when you pull into a gas station, bank, etc. Simple maintenance schedule compared to other exotics.

Worst Features

Poor visibility (especially when looking rear left from the driver's side) & from the front fenders. Costly maintenance if you don't have an extended warranty. Excessive heat coming through the cabin. Even with those faults (and all cars have faults), I would not trade this vehicle for anything.
