The SRT-4 is a little crude but very fun.

"The SRT-4 may be a little crude but it is one of the most fun cars you can get for under $10,000, that can still comfortably carry 5 people."

"I love my neon! I am only 20 and have had 2 neon's since I got my permit 3 and a half years ago. They are perfect for new drivers, especially because they are so good on gas! I was also in a wreck and the car saved my life because of it's build. I will always have a heart for neons. However, I have a one year old in a big carseat and my little neon is about to be replaced with an SUV. The size is the only negative about these cars."

Good if you buy it in good shape

"Since buying the Neon, and bought it used, this little car has been a dependable every day driver. No matter how long or short the trips that were taken in this car, only once in the four and a half years I owned it did I have to be towed home. That was due to head light switch failing, a common failure in Neon cars. I did all the repairs and services myself and used Lucas fuel stabilizer in the fuel, my average fuel mileage on the road was 30 mpg. That's because I took care of the car, as required. I would recommend the Neon R/T w/ the 5 speed manual trans to anyone looking for a gas saver and dependable every day car."
