SRT-4 final thread

OK well some hate it, some like it, some are starting to apretiate it, so what is YOUR opinion on the SRT-4? Will not retaliate here, because this is an opinion thread. Just looking to hear what people think.

Good power for the price, dunno aboutthe reliability, I have my doubts. Fun car if you've got the money though, and ALMOST unbeatable for the price.

The appearance just doesn't appeal to me but I do like the performance, but I don't see myself looking into buying one.

Here's what I've read, and some of my opinions:
She's pretty damn nice looking, and has a good bit of power, especially for $20,000, but I've also heard that she has some torque steer/relatively poor handling. I'd personally love to own one
And for the record, I did start liking them because newyorker wouldn't shut up about how great they are

i'd trade up +$7000-10,000 or whatever the difference is.

some to get a faster car, some to piss off my mustang-crazed suitemate, and some to get what my current car can only pretend to be...

I see a lot of them around here, personally I don't find them that bad looking. I saw a modded one take off at a red light (if it wasn't modded then DAMN). I'd like to test drive it to get a feel for it and see its potential.

The SRT-4 is a feared car by many. Dodge plugged a whole ton of power into the Neon and improved the handling substansially and priced it to kill.

I love the fact it's a four door, handles near the top of the sport compact segment and can run 14.0-14.5 1/4 miles. The only things that turn me off is the interior feeling cheap, questionable Daimler/Chrysler reliabilty and the exterior appearance.

personally I do like the srt-4 for the performance. not a big fan of the 4 doors on a "sportier" car but thats preference. I like how dodge did the stage kits also. all in all i could see myself owning one but i'm happy with my choice

edit:: i just hate some of the drivers mentalities, not saying all srt-4 owners have big heads but they're starting to take over the honda drivers as the biggest dicks. just my .02$

I think mustangs are good cars but it seems like everyone I meet that owns one thinks there the fastest best car thats ever been on the road.

it's not the car that makes the person think their car is the best... it's the person... i'm sure i could find camaro owners, mustang owners, srt4 owners, integra owners, (dare i say civic owners?), that think their type of car is unbeatable... hell, let's throw in M3 owners for good measure.
