Default SRT-4... Fast........ Reliable?

I know the SRT-4'* are a very quick car for the money. But does anyone know anything about their reliablity?

Who knows how long that tranny lasts with that turbo. I'd be worried.

Produced at the Belvidere (Ill.) Assembly Plant, the Dodge SRT-4 offers a $19,995 sticker ($20,495 in 2004) and a blisteringly fast alternative to the Civic Si and SVT Focus.

My point was, it'* still a cheap neon, with a not so nice interior, but turbo'd up to 200 HP +

I know they cost $20k.

The only plant on earth that pumps out the Neons is 20 minutes north of me in Belvidere and there is a real following of the SRT-4 growing. Hell the Neon autocross test course is a great show off at the Mopar shows they have in the plant car shows every summer. I like the car, I like it alot. Reminds me off the old 80'* turbo'ed Dodge'* that simply FLEW (Daytona IROC R/T, GLHS, Sprint R/T, etc). This is no car to laugh at, unless you're laughing that you just ran a 13 second quarter in a Neon.

I was driving along side of one the other day... and we both dropped it.... when he shifted... well their BOV is LOUD I like them... their front fascia differentiates them from the rest of the crowd, pure buisness.
