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


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

Review

If someone would have told me how sweet this car was I wouldn't have believed it. But once I drove it I was hooked. Sure it's a little rough around the edges, but it's dead on where it counts. Outperforms cars that are thousands more right out of the dealer lot. Performance upgrades are cheap and easy. Racing style Seats are great after getting used to them. I took a 4 hour trip a month after getting the car and I didn't even think about them. It's a nice commuter car. Small enough to zip around town, fast enough to get away from the SUV's that dominate the roads. Small performance car designers should use this as a template.


Best Features

FAST FAST FAST, BUT....good mileage when driven conservatively.


Worst Features

6 Speed Tranny & improve shifter "clunkyness" REAR Power windows. Cruise Control. Nicer looking rear wing. Wider Tires (17x7) RWD

Review

This car is super quick and super fast. I was in 3rd gear and the car was up to 80. Has great handling. I used to drive a Mustang GT, and a 350 hp 72 mustang. and this car blows it out of the water. Its quicker, faster, holds turns better, and is extremely fun to drive. If your looking for a fast car in the low 20's this is your car. I was amazed from the first test drive till now. With the 3 stages of upgrades this car is truely unbeliveable.


Best Features

Wheels, kicker sound system, turbo guage, sunroof, engine, safety features, dual exhaust, color options, upgrades.


Worst Features

Make an automatic version just because it's hard to shift with the viper inspired sheets. Dress up the interior a little more.

Review

This is my second SRT-4. This one replaces my 2004. My new 2005 is #35 of only 200 Commemorative Editions ever made. I love that car in just about every way. HUGE bang for the buck. The performance is ASTOUNDING!!! I bought another one, what else can be said that more positive than that.


Best Features

230+ Horse Power and 13 Sec 1/4 mile time for CHEAP. Aggressive, racy looks, Exhaust note, Commemorative Edition Package with the contrasting interior Details and Electric Blue Stripes. 1 of ONLY 200 Commemorative Edition ever built. They made more HEMI Cudas' than this Mopar Muscle Car.


Worst Features

Power Rear Windows, Wider Wheels and Tires, More Modern Radio Interface (currently lack MP3, RDS, SAT Capabilites)

Review

I can't help it, I love this car. You cant help but smile when you look at it, sit in it, or drive it. Add the mopar blow off valve for added pleasure. It's quick and sounds like a muscle car. There's not much not to love about this car.


Best Features

Exhaust, turbo, boost gauge, aggressive look.


Worst Features

A little extra something in the interior dept. but not too much. Stock HID lighting a good idea?
