Was driving on Deerfoot today going downtown with my wife for some X-Mas shopping when i spotted this silver car coming pretty fast on my A$$. At first i thought it was a Dodge Viper then when he got closer it was a Neon. I moved for him to pass me so i could check to see if it was the new SRT and it was.

It was a young guy driving it. He was around 22-27 years of age. Very sharp looking car with silver color. I didn't know they where out here yet?

somebody leased one though Jack Carter last week... black... not a bad car.. I took one for a test drive about a month ago... was impresed by the power.. but the power windows in the front and crank in the back really turned me away from the car

It's all about weight, Chrysler was gonna set the SRT-4 up with a quality stereo (subs, amp, CD) but the 1/4 mile times got slower, and that's not acceptable, haha, That's prolly why they have crank in the back power up front, Weight reduction

Those motors in the power windows weigh next to nothing... Its got a crank cuz they were on a tight budget...

I saw a yellow one the other day driving to school and :barf: :barf: :barf: :barf: god those things are ugly....

People can talk "speed and performance for the money" all day long and I wont dispute that for a second, but they look like the inside of someones ass....:thumbsdow

Interesting analogy, you wouldn't happen to know what the inside of someone's ass really looks like, right? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

lol....I figured saying that it looked like shit would not really describe the ugliness factor of the car.... the inside of someones ass sounds worse and actually describes my opinion of the looks of the car....

And no I dont actually know what the inside of someones ass looks like...:angel:

I would still like to drive one though just to see how it performs.... I dont care for the looks but the performance is very impressive....

Its definitely not a polished car. There are NO comfort options in the SRT-4 whatsoever. Someone mentioned power windows, but to my knowledge, not even the fronts come as power windows.

The car is about cheap performance with a waranty. Not made to look pretty, or to be luxurious. If you are looking for something with leather seats/air conditioning/overall polished fit and finish, look elsewhere. If you want to bury cars that cost twice as much, you found yourself a car :thumbsup:

EDIT: just checked, yeah there are power windows up front. But that's it for comfort :tongue:

Not for comfort...to ease window roll down to collect the 13 second timeslips...

I had an encounter with a nice guy in a Red SRT-4 today, gave him the thumbsup, he noded smiled and returned it. He then changed lanes and hauled ass, those cars sound pretty good :)

Yeah I love the sound.

I dunno how long this link will be good for, but here's a link to car and driver's review of the SRT-4 (2003 model).

Actually,

I finally went to look at those Neon Turbo with my gf, at first, she refused to walk in a "domestic" car dealership .. ;)

Anyway, It is not that bad ! that neon Turbo looks nice, and the interior is for sure nicer then most Japanese car ( such as Toyota GT-S, Corolla, Civic ..etc.... ) the salesperson also told me that I can get a "300HP" upgrade kit from Chrysler for good money.

Of course, I perfer a WRX or Sti, but for just $28K, with racing seats, sunroof, body kit, spoiler, loaded 230Hp....and no waiting time..... that is not bad ! and I am surprise ! I think a WRX is like $ 37K ? :poosie:

My only real distaste with the car is that dumb ass spoiler, it looks so cheesy, doesn't suit the lines of the car at all, but other than that, best bang for your buck I've seen in a long while.

I was in the showroom and the sales guy let me start it up and run it for a bit. It sounds mean. I think it was mufflerless...

I just wonder about resale. It's limited edition so it should hold value, but at the same time it's domestic...

And their Financing rates which depreciates their cars like a disease. I guess only time will tell.

If you are buying, it won't matter much anyways, but if you plan to lease, yeah the residual is going to be pretty low, so the monthly payment will be high.

Poor little SRT-4 gets so much hate. Maybe it's becuase for years there's been a longing in North America for a powerful, affordable turbo sport compact and Dodge finally made one? No, couldn't be :angel: .

Seriously, my brother has had an SRT-4 for about a month in Calgary here and just turned 1500 kms. From what I've seen most people's attitudes about the car change when then actually get to sit in one and take it for a ride. It's much faster than anyone really expects, which makes for humorous reactions. It handles nice and the interior is light years better than they expect.

Yes it has no power rear windows, like all Neons and SX 2.0s. It's odd, but not nearly the deal people like to make of it. It's not like it was left out on the SRT-4 to save a few bucks. The car is not perfect of course. Sometimes it's too loud, it would be nice to have cruise control and the mileage is not enjoyable. Those are really my only complaints. I should say, the abundance of tourque makes highway driving pretty easy though, you just tap the gas in 5th and away you go.

If you get a chance, take a ride in one. You might be surprised :). Appearance is something for the individual, in my opinion they did a good job with what they had to work with.

BTW, my bro just dynoed today at 234hp and 260tq @ the wheels (bone stock on a dynojet). Can't wait for stage II.

Can't we all just get along? :nut:

Once again, Mopar starts something new!! They always bring out the new shit....Hemi engine design, cab forward design, minivans, dual sliding doors, only domestic manufacturer to put turbo's in just about everything during the 80's-early 90's, big truck design with the Ram in '94. Mercedes-Benz wouldn't have joined with them if they were such a "shit" company. This is why I like them, they don't follow everyone else.

i saw a silver 04 Viper last summer driving down highway 2 on the way to work, looks 1000x better in person compared to the pics. some ppl are critical on the new look, but you cant judge it through a picture it has to be seen to be appreciated.

so ya im guessing that thers a few around :D

You guys should see the new 850 hp V-12 supercar by chrysler. I don't see any other company doing that: domestic (american) or import (asian).

I'm gonna go ahead and take the liberty of many-a-responses from all the haters by saying: "it's ugly", and "but it's still a chrysler". In response to that I will say: "all you people who think a car is better than another car are idiots. a car is a car.. who gives a fuck."

Took a neon SRT 4 for a test drive yesterday... needless to say I am taking delivery of mine in November. Was looking to get a lil feedback for some other ideas I can do to it. I am going to void the warranty the first month I have it but thats all good... I am putting the turbo upgrade on it, chip that bad boy, stuff some stage 2 coilovers under for even better handling... and this puppy lacks very lil in the handling. Was thinking about replacing header all the way bac but not sure yet. Definately have to put a short shifter in that bad boy... had a hard time going 3rd to 4th racing when I tested. I live in Germany so I was racing a 325i down the autobahn... SRT 4 beat that BMW. Surprised the hell out of me... my previous car was an 02 325ci, I loved that car... then I missed a turn and went thru 40 foot of gaurd rail... that sucked. Anyways hope you guys have some more ideas for me. The SRT 4 comes factory 230HP but I want to push it to beat my buddies Cobra.
