yeah but who the fuck wants to be seen driving one
I would, I'd look over at the little honda rice boy sitting next to me revving at a light and be like, "that's right, srt-4 bitch, back up" :D


Seriously though, what do you have against neons? Did one kill a member of your family or something? Sure I don't like the looks of them, but I care much much more about the performance of a car than the looks. I'll take a 400whp det-swapped 240 over a 350z any day. Sure it doesn't look as nice, but it would be one badass car. The srt is the same way, and you have no basis for your claims that the car won't last. Have you seen an srt-4 blow it's engine yet? Well neither have I. There is nothing to show us that it will be unreliable, only time will tell.

How many SRT-4's have you serviced then? Specificly for catastrophic engine failure of some kind.
None. Luckily I don't have to work that hard anymore. Just speaking from previous experiance with a lot of toasted mitsubishi turbo engines and friends/coworkers who have or have had troubled neons.

Sorry to keep pissing you guys off, but I'm on the Nissan forums for a reason.....I like Nissans. And I see you guy have them too. So if this new dodge product is the shit then someone go buy it so we can hear from an actual owner.

.....Your just being a little pissy whining little girl who won't accept that the srt-4 is what the 'smaller car import community' has cried for.. a small FAST car, with everything you need - nothing you don't.. for a good price......
that's funny i could have sworn that a neon was NOT an "import car" :rolleyes: IN MY OPINION (i guess according to some people i have to state this before i say shit cause they dont understand the whole point of a forum) The stupid neon fits in the same catagory as the stupid cavalier. They are the main reasons why there is a "Sport Compact" scene, they have thier own magazine, which i read religiously, that includes cars from all parts of the planet. But do you think you will ever see a modified neon in the pages of Import Tuner? NO cuz it's MADE IN AMERICA. just my 2 cents so dont get too upset about it okay, again i genuinely apologize if i offended anybody.

Well sure most of us here have Nissans, and many of us have strong ties to Nissan, but there is a big difference between loyalty and downright ignorance and blindness. The srt is a great car, cheap, powerful, exactly what this market needs for people like us, there is no disputing that. If it isn't your cup of tea, then that's cool and you have every right to say so, but blatantly saying "I guarantee you could rod the shit out of a Spec every day and have it last over 100k miles easy as long as you maintain the fucker. But that "Neon Turbo" aka SRT-4 wouldn't last say, 30-50k before having nothing left internally" has no basis and just makes you sound ignorant and stupid (not you specifically, I know you didn't say it, I'm just using it as an example).

RB26:


As far as Dodge reliability.. I've owned 3.. 1 was a P.O.S. (Chrysler LeBaron..) the other two were great. My girlfriend has an 88 Dodge Daytona Pacifica (2.2 liter turbo.. what the srt-4 is 'somewhat' modeled after) and the odometer stopped working at 198k. Yeah.. 198k.... and that was THREE years ago.


What was that about reliability?? Yeah.. that's what I thought.

Your just being a little pissy whining little girl who won't accept that the srt-4 is what the 'smaller car import community' has cried for.. a small FAST car, with everything you need - nothing you don't.. for a good price.

Your just jealous.

Also - to whoever was whining about one wheel peel... What's the 0-60 spec of the srt-4? Go look at that.. and then go look at how it would leave your spec-v (with two wheels burnouts..) in the dust. You'd be spinning the two fronts watching the back of the srt-4 LEAVE you..
Reliability?? Yeah..that's what I thought?????You talk about four vehicles and one was a POS....3 out of 4 doesn't sound like very good odds to me.

What? " the 'smaller car import community' has cried for".....a big three car import? Import cars are cool, big three cars suck

I drive my car to have fun not to be the fastest. If you know the 0 to 60 times of these vehicles then post them!

The whole point is Nissan rules

The SRT-4 is a Neon...... Just like the SRT-10 is a Ram Truck, SVT Cobra is a Mustang, SVT Lightning is a F-150


The EVO does have a warranty.

most of what you say is true, .....what can i say, i like to talk shit..... besides that, work, and girls. what else am i supposed to do :rolleyes: drink beer? :D

~~~Hey look, this is what you get when a WRX fucks a Neon.
well, the neon was probably a crack whore/alchoholic throughout the pregnancy and some how one of the WRX's slow sperms made it to the egg first.


Lucky for the Neon, the "Turbo" gene got passed on.
:D

Or how about not being a brand nazi. Or not flaming something that is brand new to the market and give it sometime to test the quality instead of making assumptions and looking like a dumbass

Who is looking like a dumbass? I guess it's just me and my partner rb26. The best part of the whole thing is that I think we are the only ones on this thread that work for NISSAN.

you work for nissan so what you want a cookie? still doesnt give a basis for what you said about a car that is new its quality now the looks to each his own eye of the beholder type shit but to start bashing something that not many have had extensive time with is just as dumb dodge threw something on the table whether or not its worthy is something that will be told in time we'll see how worthy it is but right now is kind of dumb to say alot of the things that have been said.

Something that is pretty funny though that this thread started out about a SpecV vs a RSX Type-S and now has turned into an SRT-4 Thread weird

there are 3 spec V owners that I know of who have sold their spec's and gotten SRT4s and say they couldn't be happier. Say much?

they're members on b15sentra.net.

2 of them are in the club I used to be a member of.

Spec V gets low 7 seconds, not 8.0. WTF is that?

Look, the Spec V is 2.5L N/A. The SRT-4 is 2.4L turboed at 14 psi. You can make a Spec V just as fast. The miracle is how Dodge made it for 19k and warrantied for 7 years out of the factory, plus it can take tons more boost without changing the internals.

If you want to talk about speed, almost any car can be made fast. If you want to talk about how great the SRT-4 is, then you have to talk about all the work Dodge did to make it a reality. I think a key was having a system to vary the PSI depending on conditions. That probably made the accountants shut up.

I'm not sure if it says much really. It says they want a fast car. It doesn't really say the Spec is a POS, it just says they like the SRT-4 more.

And it says they aren't very smart financially. They probably lost 6,000-8,000 on a trade- in. Add that to the 20k pricetag of the SRT-4, add interest and TTL, and we are talking 30k to own that SRT-4. Dumb! What if something better comes out in 2 years?

If I really needed the Neon, I would find a used SRT-4, with about 20k miles. It would probably be selling for 15k (if that). Trade- in my Spec V for 10k-12k and I am down "only" 3-5k.

the 3 guys that did it had positive equity on their specs, or they were completely paid off.

also......the SRT4 is at 11psi :) at least, the one I drove was.
