The Dodge Neon SRT-4 was cheap speed -- and it was an icon of its era. Today I'm reviewing an SRT-4 ACR to show you what made the SRT-4 special, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the Neon SRT-4. Then I'm going to drive the Dodge Neon SRT-4 and show you what it's like on the road.

Coming from a srt4 owner (on my 5th one) your face when you got into the power is exactly why people love them. Its not luxurious, its not rwd or awd, it's plain, its hated, and all that is why we love it. Cheap speed, and its a really great car to learn on. It can have pretty good power and it dont weigh a whole lot 29ish00 pounds.

Your HP numbers are wrong. SRT4’s we’re putting down 220-244whp stock. Dodge underrated the power figures for insurance purposes. They knew young people would get slaughtered by insurance companies with expensive policies.

Yeah a 40 year old neighbor had one of these 10 years ago. Modded the hell out of it and it was fun. Sold it to the high school kid down the street and wrapped it around a tree a few months later. It served its purpose. I would kind of like to add this to a collection of rag tag cars if I had the room.

Seems like Doug is getting less and less willing to give cars low ratings when they deserve it. If a 15 year old Neon doesn't deserve a low Quality score then I don't know what does. This is one of the worst eras for one of the least reliable major car brands of all time. Yeah it is better quality than an 80s Lotus, but 5 is supposed to be average. That being said, if it had come from a brand without the horrible reputation I would have loved to have had one of these. I'm personally willing to ditch a few frivolous features if I can get more power and better handling for not much money. On the other hand, that's why I always buy used cars.

The early 20's guy started with this and thought he was really cool darting through traffic. In his 40's he bought the equally pos Charger and still speeds through traffic attempting to feel more cooler than he did with this car. But it's a pos also.

I had a 2004 version of this car. I absolutely loved it. The interior was as you describe, but it was also the same as pretty much every American car of that time period, especially the Daimler-Chryslers. The cost cutting (shockingly) really *REALLY* kicked in after the Daimler acquisition. (Who would have guessed). Daimler did more damage to Chrysler that can really be articulated. But back to the car. I loved driving this car. I didn't have much notable torque steer (and I've driven a lot of performance cars, both FWD and RWD). I traded it for a RAM SRT-10. To this day, this will be the one car that I completely regret ever letting go.

15:39 kids you see that little weird piece of plastic in the top left... that's what we mean when we say ROLL the windows up.... and half the time the driver side one broke so you had to take the passenger one off for the driver. And pass it back and forth to your passenger to roll them up

This is one of the VERY FEW good things that came from the Diamler era of Chrysler. I think it's funny how Doug picks this car apart for it's cheap materials, etc. like it was a $50k car. Note to Doug, NO OTHER CAR HAD IT'S PERFORMANCE FOR ANYWHERE NEAR IT'S PRICE POINT. BTW Doug, Chrysler didn't "bump-up the power" in 2004, they just came clean about how much power it actually had. Even Sport Compact Car magazine commented on how the 2003 was putting more power to the wheels than the engine was rated for. I guess Chrysler thought no one would put it on the dyno. 🤔
