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.

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

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

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.

they aren't that bad for the price but Dodge could have done something about the looks. there is one here and its not bad except he's got one of those stupid blow off valves with no other upgrades. all in all, not a bad car, but its still a NEON!!!

Let's see, 240hp for under 20K, upgraded suspension, looks clean and sleek. I think I'll stop there, cuz I'm sure you can all tell what I think of it...

People that say "still just a neon" are the kind of people that can't see that MOST inexpensive sport coupes and sedans are "just a____" under eth skin, and some of teh fastest race cars started out MUCH slower in stock form. "Still just a____" doesnt' cut it as an insult.

otherwie teh WRX is "still just a hotted up Imprezza) which used to be a boring econobox until Subaryu went rallying with it. The Lancer EVO is "just a" tarted up Mirage econobox, the stock basic versions of which are slow. the Renault R5 Turbo II and Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 were both just modded versions of seriously basic economy cars (and the Renault was never very pretty). Yet they are still legends.



Neons were sold from the factory, since they began, with successful road race versions. That makes the car A-Ok in my book. I dont' intend on owning one, but I can still appreciate it.

I wouldnt buy one, but I think they are good cars. Especially when power per dollar is taken into consideration.
