2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 SRT-4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I currently own three Neons, a 99, a
99 R/tTand an 04 SRT. The SRT has
been the most problematic by far.
Problems on the SRT include an oil
leak at 400 miles. Now i have 32,000 and
it has yet to be fixed; axle seal went
at 6,000, numerous computer problems,
steering problems, and the most recent
problem has to deal with the throttle
sticking open. I was very excited to
get this SRT since I'm a total Neon
geek, however it was a huge let down.
The performance is great and it's fun
to run at the track, but it would be
great if the build and reliability of
the vehicle matched its performance.
I've owned it for a year and I'm ready
to sell. Thanks Dodge.


Best Features

The boost gauge is nice, however I added more gauges on a pillar. That would have to be my favorite feature. Also, the body styling and E-Blue color are great.


Worst Features

Where do I begin! Customer service through Chrysler for one, and this is a lot considering I work for a Dodge dealer. The overall quality and build of the vehicle. Also, it'd be nice if Mopar Performance would come out with more aftermarket Dodge performance accessories for the SRT.

Review

This is by far the most fun car I have ever driven. The power is unbelievable and the suspension is very tight while only being a little harsh. The brakes bring you back down to legal speeds in a hurry, which will be necessary if this car is driven like it shound be. The steering is quick but very heavy and a bit on the numb side. Being 6'6" I could use a little more headroom and legroom. It's not quite as roomy as my previous car, a Ford Focus ZX3. The heavily bolstered front seats are actually really comfortable while making sure you don't slide around when taking that "suggested" 30 mph off ramp at 70 mph. Best car buy ever.


Best Features

The amazing horsepower and low rpm torque. Agressive exhaust note. Overall apperance(minus the big rear spoiler. 0-60 in under 6 seconds for about $21,000. Great general driving dynamics. The SRT-4 is not just about going fast in a straight line, it brakes and handles great too.


Worst Features

Make steering lighter like my old Focus. Has large turing radius in parking lots. Shifter is acurate but heavy and throws are a litthe long. Interior room is a little tight but I guess not everyone is over 6 feet tall.

Review

All I have to say is that this vehicle
is one fast ride! There is no turbo
lag, just sheer power when you need it.
Even without using the recommended 91
octane, the car still puts out 11psi of
boost and pulls nicely. The handling is
excellent and the ride quality is very
good considering the abilities of the
vehicle. The brakes do an excellent job
of stopping the vehicle under heavy
braking without ever fading. The
exhaust is somewhat loud due to lack of
mufflers, but to a car enthusiast such
as myself, it's music to my ears. The
seats are wonderfully supportive during
hard cornering but having the wide side
bolsters makes is somewhat difficult to
get in. An excellent ride for under 22K!


Best Features

11-14psi of boost from the factory, a real boost gauge, racing-style front seats, front mounted intercooler, kick- ass sounding Kicker stereo w/subwoofer, loud exhaust right from the factory, and nice-looking 17" wheels.


Worst Features

Ride height could be a little lower and wheels and tires could be a little wider.

Review

This car is awesome. There is not one
thing I can complain about. It will blow
the doors off any other car for the
price. Next to the WRX and EVO, its one
of the best sport compact cars out right
now.


Best Features

Turbo, racing seats,boost guage


Worst Features

none
