I heard on another board that the SRT-4 would only be produced this year. Has anyone else heard this?
I don't know why Dodge would do this, especially if the SRT-4 sells like hotcakes...

Well, the DC reps were kind of sneaky. I don't know if they even know. I will say that in 05 the Neon will be no more. The question is the SRT-4..will it be out for just this year...next year also. I think 03 and 04, and that is it.

Buy it while you can.

Ya....i agree....'03/'04 only. I have read on numerous sites that the Neon will not be around for '05.
Didn't I read somewhere that the whole Neon line was going to be replaced in the near future?

the neon is still going to be around in 05 but on the mitsubishi lancer platform. hopefully they will keep the 2.4 turbo motor in it.

I asked DC reps this, and they didn't reply with the exact response, although they did hint it might not be that platform. Although I don't know what else there is besides that, they said it might not be that one.

Chrysler? All of the "rumors" that most people hear are worthless, I only trust what they say from DC. Even then it is only right about 75% of the time. I actually saw one of em today.

yes they are replacing it with the lancer platform to cut costs due to "poor" neon sales.

"Chrysler and Mitsubishi jointly will create the next-generation Neon, due for the 2004 model year. Mitsubishi will take the engineering lead, while Chrysler will handle styling.

The next-generation Neon sedan will be based off the platform created for the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer, the replacement for the Mirage. The Lancer went on sale this year.

The 2004 Neon likely will use Mitsubishi engines and transmissions."

AND if you want to hear it from DC because they're the only ones you believe then...



"Product portfolio: cross-divisional segment strategy

In some vehicle segments the foundations have already been laid for the realization of synergies between the various products of the Group. For example, engineers from DaimlerChrysler and Mitsubishi Motors are working on a shared design concept for a small car in the so-called B-segment. The smart four-seater and the two Mitsubishi variants that are based on this platform are to be launched as early as 2004.

Another decision was taken to develop a common C-segment platform, with an estimated production volume of more than 500,000 vehicles per year, for the Chrysler Neon and the Mitsubishi Lancer and derived product variants.

Chrysler Group and MMC have also defined a third platform for full-sized sedans in the D-segment, that is, for the successors to their Stratus/Sebring and Galant models."

I dont want to see my car at every other stoplight like you do with WRX's.
Does anyone know of productions numbers for the short 03' and full 04' MY?

So basically if you don't get one this year, you won't get one at all? And I would never buy an SRT-4 used because you know it's been beaten to death :\ This is really disappointing. Oh well, I guess I won't be saving for an srt-4.

The last issue of Mopar Now magazine, the one with the SRT-4 on the cover. It was discussed on the sidebar relating to the future of the Neon.
