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.

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.

A lot of the negative asthetic points are to save substantial weight. Screws not covered. Cheap plastic interior peeices that snapped together without screws. Rear manual windows. Rear bumber clips not covered. No trunk liner. All of that adds up to a lot less weight and cost too!.... Then they added a 12 inch Kicker and wasted all of the weight they saved.

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.

I dont mind cost-cutting and cheap materials in cars like these. Its what makes them affordable, but they are still fun when you drive them. Nowadays we hardly have any cars like these left.

Have you never been in a late 90s early 2000s economy car? They all had power windows in the front and cranks in the rear, nothing special its not that crazy

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.

You can't knock the quality too much if at 130,000 miles it's still running that strong and looking that good.

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. 🤔

With the amount of times my dad would start rolling up the window as I had my arm out the window in the back seat, I wish all back seats had manual windows. I actually prefer manual windows for that specific reason.

Also also the srt4 modle also cam with stages 2,3 Would bump horse power to 250 and 300 hp from the factory as well competing with the sti and evo. Along with the acr package

The most interesting quirk and feature is, that they actually made 250 to 270 hp on the dynos, hp advertised was lower than what it actually made. I miss my black srt4 which i totaled into the back of a Jetta. RIP

14:25 That Hook behind the center console has a purpose the center console flip all the way back and that hook thing holds it in place that way people on the back seat have a cupholder and a little storage. I have a 2003 neon R/T and I thought that was the coolest feature on the car 😂😂😂

These old Neons are faster and better than than this review may fully report...I rolled a 2001 R/T...3 rolls down an embankment off of 26 Mile Road in Rochester, MI. The car was totaled. I landed on my wheels. I was belted in and not injured at all...In fact I was able to power it back to the pavement and made it home to my driveway (approximately a quarter mile)...albeit crushed and missing windows while rolling on two rims. I miss that car and would love to have it again!

My nieces and nephews couldn't figure out how to open the back seat windows in the late 90s when they were kids.

Yep, all this information checks out. It's true. All of it. Very good journalist, youtuber, reviewer. I still drive my 2001 Dodge Neon with... 60,000 miles in 2020... it's paid for and works (although I'm fixing the power steering)
