i sat and one at the auto show and sadly i liked it and wouldnt mind one i also sat in one of those evos thats was very nice also. i dont think my friends would ever let me live it down if i bought a neon. but they wouldnt talk crap after i handed then their *** on a plate with a neon. personally they dont look THAT bad its just id have to get really good at a stick before id go for one so i wouldnt mind owning one cuz it will kill most cars in its class and a few above its class.

Faster from 0-120 than either a Honda S2000,...Nissan 350Z,....Porsche Boxster,...BMW Z4 3.0,.....Audi TT Quattro turbo-4,....Maxima 3.5,....Mazda RX8,.....Infiniti G35 Coupe(... AND just a half second slower than a 305HP Mustang Mach 1)........and tops out at 153mph(drag limited),out-the-door for $20 Grand......yeah,I Guess thay are the best bang for the buck!!7 year/70,000 mile warranty,no reason to believe they won't be reliable........or Dodge foots the bill.If I were in the market for a small car that can embarrass Many of the 'hotrods' of the auto World,that would be My choice.

I sat in it too. It was fun playing with the gear shifter. It'* so small too. It'* probably a blast to drive.

I think they're fugly. Always have, always will. It'* a little tin can with a turbo. No room inside, rough harsh ride. If what you want is a little zippy, more power to you. I'll stick with what I have. I'd rather buy a used Bonneville for that money.

Exactly!

Guys it'* a $12k car that'* faster then it should be. It'* FWD, and it'* blah. If you're in the market for a REAL performance car, you're getting RWD.
