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


I finaly went out and drove the SRT-4
yesterday and was more than pleasantly
supprised. Understeer was very minimal
with considerable wheelspin on slower
corners. But when I expected understeer
the car clung to its line and glided
exactly where I wanted it. High speed
cornering was a little less impresive
with the car seeming to wobble around
and not want to keep a set but overall
balance was excellent for a car
in this class.
Compared to the nissan spec-V the dodge
has much less understeer on slower
cornering and accelerated with a punch
that the nissan didn't have. However on
the high speed corners the SER seemed
more set and planted at the limit. all
in all I had a smile on my face.

Best Features

shifter felt great and side support on the seats was excellent. the front of the car looks mean and has the power to back it up. pedal placement is good for heel toe and steering has just the right amount of resistance. and my favorite part- Minimal understeer and almost no torque steer

Worst Features

stiffer spring ratios would help on the high speed corners. the car did not hold a set well and wobbled around all mushy like on its suspension. If the body was a little more stiffly sprung it might cut down on this. I would also like to see more adjustment on the seat to improve driving position
