I know for a fact they can beat a WRX, but the SRT-4 needs some tuning to do it. With the boost cranked up a bit it will beat one.

that neon has 230 hp bone stock for $10k less than an sti. srt4's also have tons of upgrades avaliable from the dealership and are all completely under factory warranty.

and that right there is the civic philosophy

and not thousands... i'd say a little over a grand and you'd be leaving sti's in your rearview and that's without any weight reductions and thanks to all the parts avaliable from the factory the car would still be under warranty :D

and you're right, the car isnt for everyone. some people will never own domestics and that's their personal choice. that doesnt mean it's not an awesome deal for the money or that it is a piece of crap. when people start talking about domestics like this they sound just as bad if not worse than domestic owners talking about civics.

Yeah they're fast, but think of the reason why Honda doesnt mass produce a turbo civic or integra. They spent their money into technology that matters more like effeciency, reliability, etc,. Someone can just stick a 350 into a datsun to make it stupid fast, but is that effecient? Or in this case, up the displacement to 2.4L and stick on a turbo and its fast. I mean if you think about it, you could pop in a b18c5 into an 5th gen hatch and stock its beating the neon with a much smaller displacement and no forced induction for even less cash. Ya the STi is more money but it has the backup of being proven time and again in WRC be being an excellent all around performer. It was never about a 1/4 mile slip, it was about the whole package. Shit, if a fast car in the 1/4 mile is what you want, buy a mustang GT and mod that.

it may or may not be a turd... either way, as long as it comes with a big fat warranty i'm ok with it :D or better yet... lease it AND get the warranty, that way you could run that bish into the ground then turn it back in after a couple years and if anything goes wrong in the meantime you're covered.

THE SRT4 COSTS UNDER $20k!!! that's the point people seem to miss. you get slightly less performance than an sti FOR UNDER $20K. and even though it's not proven it still has a warranty, and seeing how the average length of a cars ownership is now under 4 years... get an extended warranty and you'll be covered till the day you say bye bye.

F A C T O R Y W A R R A N T Y. so lets recap... brand spanking new car with 230hp and already boosted (a boosted engine is soooooooo much easier and less expensive to squeeze hp out of than a n/a) with a kick ass warranty that will fix almost ANYTHING that goes wrong during your ownership all for thousands and thousands less then the comperable vehicle. what could be wrong with that?

I know its under $20,000. That's my point. You can buy a brand new Mustang GT with 260hp, more torque and responds way better to mods, for about the same price. And stock performance numbers are pretty close too. Besides, they sound better and have been around for a while. Id take a reliable v8 over a neon 4banger any day

Ha, I have nothing against domestics. I've been service manager for a while at a good sized automotive repair facility. And the good old 350s, 302s and many Buicks have been great (as long as their owners take car of them of course). It's the smaller displacement engines that PISS me off. Im sick of telling good customers that they need to rebuild their stupid windstar or taurus 3.8 liter... with not even 100,000 miles on it. Im sick of carvans throwing belts, getting seized tensioners and pulleys, blowing oil seals all over the fuqen place. Oh and Neons, i dont know where to begin. You shouldnt have to re-engineer an alternator mount on a car thats been in production for quite a few years now. And Suburbans! holy shite!!! Of course a lot of people are going to use suburbans for towing, but what GM wont tell you is that your radiator cant handle the excess thermal pressures and will blow within a year or two, and the fix for that? re-design the WHOLE front end. I could go on forever. Why am I an import fan? Mostly Honda and Toyota at that. I like forged crankshafts with perfect bearing clearance, not this cast iron crap. With blocks that can handle many times there rated horsepower. with superior cooling for high reving engines. And wonderfully balanced pistons, connecting rods and crankshafts. duel cam profiles to give me great gas mileage AND great performance (which MASS produced engine was the first to put out 100 hp per litre?). I like lighter cars that brakes quicker and have more nimble handling to avoid accidents. Sure more torque would be nice, but the good outweighs the bad.

Ya the V8's are reliable proven pushrod engines, but cmon, lets get some better technology in there that stays reliable. Lets get some dual cam profiles, some forged crankshafts, some stronger shot blocks, some multi valve heads with proper hardware that doesnt bind up, lets get some gaskets that dont leak oil every few thousand miles, lets get some better designed head flow, ignition systems that dont burn out after a bad rainstorm, some pulley bearings that doent seize up prematurely and throw belts.

Wow that's a long rant. I'm going to bed.

i wouldnt go as far as to say mustangs respond better to mods... even you have to admit that it's alot easier and cheaper to squeeze hp out of a boosted engine with nothing but minor mods and a good tuning. this neon is nothing like any other neon on the market. only thing it shares is body and some wiring.

^ after reading all this, i suppose the SRT4 is great for the price its being sold as. I dont know so much about reliability because come on now, a car that quick for that cheap isn't so for no reason. they must have cut corners somewhere in order to be able to sell a car pumping that much power out to be under 20k. Sti's are so expensive because they have the means to be. All in all, you get what you pay for - my opinion.

That right there pretty much add on to the fact that I will never buy a domestic. This isnt the average "dOmeSTIcs sUcks Ass!!!11!" point of view here, its the "long term investment" point of view. I want something that will last, point blank and simple.

And I see the point of a srt-4 costing less than a STi...but throwing in "a little over a thousand" and having a srt-4 beating a STi....no.

the rsx alone would be more than the srt4 and then to boost it would be another couple thou. and then it sure as hell wouldnt be under factory warranty or any more reliable then the srt4

sorry to say it but the srt4 is the closest thing on the market to a dsm.

Or you could buy a 5th gen hatch, full coilovers and a b18c5 complete swap for around $10,000 and have a nice car with a superior suspension, that has a normally aspirated 1.8L and will run 13s

or buy a 90 camaro for a grand and build that thing and be in it under $6k and smoke your civic..... WARRANTY all under factory warranty with the srt-4. you can buy sh@t loads of upgrades for it from the factory and all of it is completely under factory warranty. and have it all bundled with your original loan and POOF... if it blows up, cracks a blocks, throws every rod, etc, etc, it's all under factory warranty. it doesnt matter if you stand out in the parking lot of the dealership and hold the gas down till the top end blows off... it's all covered :D and the turbo in it is a proven reliable mitsubishi turbo

yeah 99 =[ the 3rd gen they lost the 4cyl turbo and awd. their new v6 is slower, has less hp, and gets worse gas mileage..... and looks like sh@t WTF WERE THEY THINKING???

the sales for the 3rd gen were decent but their target buyer (teens to late 20's) didnt have the money or the insurace costs to afford one. the 3rd gen is targeted at an older market with customers that can actually afford them.

sick sad mitsu =[

my friends gsx was fast but there's no way we could touch the srt4's 14.2 bone stock 1/4mile.

how do you know that the srt is reliable??? just because its covered under warranty doesn't mean shit. I used to work for a mazda dealer and you could ask anyone of the rx7 owners and they would tell you that the car is in the shop more than not... the srt has no track record... I don't understand why the comparison to a sti... that wasn't an sti. the sti would blow the shit out of an srt w/ mods, and its a fookin nice car with alot more stuff to justify the cost diff... liquid injected cooling... omg drool... and besides I know for a fact that my hatchie would leave a srt wondering wtf. not dissin the srt... nice car... but don't compare apples to oranges.

i'm not saying its reliable, but on the same not you cant say it's unreliable since everything in it including the motor and tranny have never been used in this car.. and even if it proves to be unreliable you still wont have to pay a red cent to have it fixed and can sell if you are unhappy with it... but that wont happen. from every person i've talked to and every review i've read, the owners LOVE their cars and wouldnt give them up for anything. and as far as comparing it to the sti.... people all over are comparing it to them... just google it and you'll see. there's nothing on the market for the money that's even close besides the sti and evo.... that's just facts. and i would love to see your hatch beat a srt4. lemme guess... you dumped thousands into an 8 year old car??? aint to smart champ. wait till you try to resale that car and cant get over $5k.
and anyone is going to be hard pressed to prove to me that an engine swapped honda is going to be more reliable than a brand new srt4.

i dont want to give anyone the wrong idea. i'm not saying this car is faster than an sti or that it's unbeatable in a race. BUT in my opinion it is the best deal and fastest car for the money and has great aftermarket upgrades availiable for it. but like i said, that's just my opinion. and the warranty = peace of mind for me

I service a few of them in my shop, they're some of the most reliable fast cars ive seen. We have a crx with a b16a swapped into it that we service and it has close to 200,000 miles without any rebuild to the bottom end. The head was rebuilt recently only because the owner wanted to replace the aging valve seals. Suspension is tight, no sign of low PH on the cooling system (flushed every winter with distilled water) and runs strong. Fluids are maintained on a constant basis, and the car purrs. And 170+ hp in a car that weighs less than 2000lbs is FAST.

Evreyone has this BS notion that cars with high km are not reliable. this is total BULLSHIT. The problem lies not with the car but people not doing proper maintenance. An engine swapped honda, regardless of age is going to be more reliable than 90% of the cars out there. If the suspension is tight, and the cooling system is intact, brakes are good, theres no reason to not replace the entire drivetrain. My car has 280,000km and have never had a breakdown. As for resale value, check out the honda clubs. People are selling they're swapped hondas at a good price, and they go like krispy creme donuts

what good is a warranty if you can't ever drive your car because it's always in the shop? Every single neon owner I know hates their car. They have all had problems with them, and the srt won't be any different. Dodge=Junk

sti / evo vs srt... not even in the same ball park. maybe a reg wrx. yeah I dumped thousands of dollars into my hatch and I will prob dump thousands more. I'm not looking for something to buy thats fast out of the box... I build my cars for me. not to resell. although I have never raced a srt, you can do the math... my motor comes w/ 210hp on a 2400lb chassis... I have not taken it to the track, but I can guarantee it runs 13's. My heavy ass prelude gets into low 14's and trust me, I know that my civy is hella faster than my prelude. also... 9 times outta 10, a naturally aspirated motor will be more reliable than a forced one. shit man... if you like the srt so much buy one and take ur ass to mopar land.

believe me man, next time i'm in the market for a brand new car and to get $20k into debt i will.
a 14.2 bone stock 1/4 for under $20k.... hook me up!

and for the second or third time... GOOGLE IT MOTHA F@CKER!
people all over the internet are comparing srt4 with evo and sti. if you're thinking it's just me you're wrong... wont take long to see what i'm talking about.

whelp... with ford backing... there's no limit to what kind of perf a ford can make. same w/ mopar. the reason why those domestic manufacturers sponsor those teams is because they are chasing a honda dominated market. I'm not downing the srt4... I like all cars, beit a focus, civic, neon wutever. but a srt4 is no comparison to the sti. 300hp? awd? sorry bud... like i said no comparison. also for the srt4 to produce that much power its boost is set at 14lbs. 14 freakin pounds... reliable... hmmm. And as far as mercedes.... ever since chrysler took mb, resale values took a dip. look at ml... the first chrysler built mb. geez they fooked that one up.

i guess i look at the focus the way most of you look at the srt4 (not to compare the two) but they may be fast and proven but i would never own them because i find their styling horrible.

Ha, I don't know where you got that information, but i'll give you our annual CAA report that shows Chrysler on the bottom of the list for reliability and customer satisfaction. The top 4 were BMW, Mercedes, Toyota and Honda. and BMW and Mercedes were only in the top because people who own such vehicles do overkill on their maintenance. The next on the list were Nissan, Mazda, Ford then GM and Chrysler. In fact, the probably the only reason for Honda not to be number one is the fact that a lot of people have a pre-conceived notion that Hondas are so reliable, that owners do not have to do maintenance on them. So many a time we see a neglected Honda that could have lasted much longer if people did their coolant flushes, tranny flushes, oil changes at regular intervals etc,. Yet even with the abuse, they still manage to get one of the top spots...

And other than our CAA reports, heres a few links for you:
