Pros: surprise factor/rarness
Cons: front wheel drive/neon like styling
Advice: Dont buy this car for your teenage drivers! Can be to much car for young inexperienced driversI is almost hard to drive slow. This is the perfect sports car for someone who donest want to pay sports car money. It is very fun to drive with all the sights and sounds it offers. It grips the road and shoots out of corners like a real race car. It is about as close to a race car(For the money of course)as you can get bone stock. Performance is the ultimate goal of this car so dont expect anything but.
Cons: no longer being made. don't like what Benz is doing to Dodge.
Advice: Get one before you're stuck with the 'Caliber' station wagon.wow. awesome car. more than I expected or hoped for. It's the perfect midlife crisis car, plenty of power, and money left over to pay the mortgage. They aren't for everyone- a little raw and uncivilized, not unlike '60-'70 muscle cars, but smaller and better behaved. I believe in buying American made and keeping Americans working. I would HIGHLY recommend this American car. It's like an eager horse just waiting for a little slack in the reins.
Advice: buy it really fast, easy to mod, did a 13.9 1/4 stockMini Muscle car, I love it, it's a rocket!

Advice: Buy it great carThis car is very quick and handles great. Im very happy with this car and suggest it to anyone wanting a good inexpensive very quick car.
Cons: No cruise control
Advice: Check insurance rate firstFor the money, there is no car that gives this level of bang for the buck. I considered the Ford SVT Focus, the Honda Civic SI, and the Acura RSX-S and none of them could compare as far as a total package for the money. I test drove all before I purchased the SRT4. The engine is great, the handling superb, and the looks and feel of the car outstanding. Dodge finally got another one right.
