Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: No mufflers.
Cons: No room for snow chains
Advice: If your are looking for a low-cost high-performance vehicleThis is the best possible anti-commute car. I commute every day, but opposite to rush-hour traffic, so I can drive the SRT-4 at freeway speeds, free from traffic jams. This car is not much fun in stop-and-go traffic, but it is marvelous for cruising at high speed. Great horsepower, great handling, and plenty of room. Incidentally, I found an artist to put some orange and red graphics (real paint) on my yellow SRT-4, for a great look.
Pros: overall performance/handling
Cons: sits a bit to far from the pavement.
Advice: get it and humble some v-8 ownerstest drive sold me,saleman said go ahead have some fun. wrong thing to say. at 3000 rpm in third rolled on the throttle to about 5000 rpm the into 4th...wow!!! i have driven so called performance cars with 2x this sticker price that will not perform like this car will.
Pros: don't have one
Cons: the shifter needs to be shorter.
Advice: All i can say is buy one, you wont regret itwell i think this car is the bomb. It handles great and is really comfortable. I had raced an evo 8 one day with a friend of mine(my friend loves the evo 8) and we won. we could not believe it. the kid asked us what we had in it and we told him that everything is stock. So get a srt-4 its the best deal you can get. save $10,000 or more on the srt-4 over the evo 8 and wrx-sti. The srt-4 also goes great in the snow. I have been getting 28 - 31 mpg with the srt-4.
Pros: Performance and handling
Cons: The big wing on the back
Advice: Shop online for the car the 2004 still comes with the 7year 70k warrantyI drove a number of cars before driving the SRT-4 but after driving the SRT-4 no other car came close to the performance of this car.
Pros: turbo/brakes/handling/price and dodge makes the after market parts
Cons: should have come with short throw shifter
Advice: buy the short throw shifter makes a differencethe seats holds you in tight corners turbo kicks in fast very fun to drive exhaust sounds good i love down shifting throws your head back fast off the line and if you know how to drive her she will beat just bout anything
Pros: THE PERFORMANCE, THE SOUND OF THE ENGINE ETC
Cons: GAS MILEAGE COULD BE BETTER
Advice: BUY ITWONDERFUL CAR. NEVER HAVE SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT FOR THE MONEY. ONLY COMPLAINT WOULD BE THE COST OF THE STAGE II & STAGE 3 KITS. WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE CRUISE CONTROL.
Pros: Crackling, burbling and popping from the exhaust
Cons: Subwoofer is weak
Advice: Drive carefullyTurn the key and a throaty drone barks from behind you from the dual mufflerless exhaust pipes. Step on the gas and the engine sounds like a monster being pierced with a spear through the heart- awesome. This car explodes off the line and handles like no other car. Let off the gas and the crackling, burbling and popping is hilarious entertainment for me every time. There is no other car like this car. It's not just the car- it's the technology.
