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


What a great little car! Stuff a 2.4L Turbo, heavy duty trans and limited slip diff underhood, then add a good suspension, different styling, and viola - the perfect FWD performance deal. I've been getting about 27 mpg after the engine break-in. No problems to date. Exhaust is a bit loud, but I kind of like it. It doesn't drone on the expressway. Handling is darn good for a FWD car, and brakes are terrific. It has the Kicker/Livin Loud stereo, and sounds very good! I would prefer to be able to turn the sub up a bit. Can't go wrong for the money!

Best Features

Sick power, ease of modification, great handling, FWD and limited slip diff with snow tires will make it great in the winter, decent fuel economy, 4 doors and a nice trunk. In short, sports car performance without the sports car drawbacks.

Worst Features

Engine bucks/bobbles a bit much, could use stiffer motor mounts, which is easy enough to add. Throttle response a little soft, especially when releasing the clutch. And yes, cruise would be nice!
