They mention a thread where someone compared the SRT to ChickenHawk of loony toons. I remember reading that thread, was it in here?

Anyway, This is a "He said, She said" type article, and both gave the SRT 5 stars (of 5). Too bad they didn't research enought to see that you can get Side airbags.. Ohh well.

Try this one out: http://info.detnews.com/autosconsumer/autoreviews/index.cfm?myrec=226

Yea and the final ratings: YEAAAAAAAAAAA FIVE OUT OF FIVE

sidebar notes...

Paul's rating:


Likes: Legitimate American tuner car. Great under-$20,000 price for a compact performance model. Very responsive constant torque -- not lurchy. Comfortable ride. Decent gas mileage for a high-output turbo engine. Impressive exhaust burble. Standard anti-lock brakes. 7-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty

Dislikes: Rear wing blocks visibility. No side air bags, no traction control. Can't reach front doors easily to close them. Obvious where Chrysler cut corners -- crank windows in rear, no map pockets.


Anita's rating:


Likes: The most performance for the money on the market. Wild and distinctive styling. Zippy turbo engine makes gobs of torque. Nimble handling. Attractive matte-metal ring around HVAC. Extensive gauge package. Subdued interior treatment.

Dislikes: Could lose the goofy whale tail. Can't fit my big behind into driver's seat. Wavy rubber moldings.
