No, the SRT-4 is first of all affordable (20k), so putting this car on the market 4 years from now for lets say $14k or 15k will look like a bargain compared to other cars with the same performance levels. Unfortunatly i see 00 or 01 regular Neons selling for 7-8k and its sad. This car will be different like the way older cars such as the Sentra SE-R and the Civic SI hold their value (im just using these cars as an example not starting a "forum war"). Buying a SRT-4 will be a smart choice for anyone looking for a value priced performance car under 21k.

I am also a bit concerned about this car holding it's value. Despite all that Dodge has done to set this car apart from the Neon, the two seem forever linked (ie: all the tv reports have called it the "Neon SRT-4.") Apart from this, cars are rarely good from an investment point of view, what with the quick depreciation of new cars leaving the lot. I hope the SRT-4 bucks the Neon trend though, but I'm not counting on it. Besides, I bought this car drive, not invest. :twisted:

You're lucky you have a Honda. I have a 2000 Sentra SE that I'm selling and I'll be lucky to get $8500 for it and I paid around $17,500 for it.

Ofcourse....I dont want the srt-4 for an investment, I want to drive it too!.. However when I am ready to get a new car, it would be nice if I could get some decent amount for it ya know? I mean, the only reason I am even thinking about getting the SRT-4 in the first place is because the Honda held its value so well. If I were in Grunges situation....I wouldnt be able to get a car till 2006 or something.

Good luck grunge :(

To answer your question if i have one yet, NO! (DODGE were all pissed at you). I am looking to buy a Black SRT-4 in the spring (im in Pa and it will be a while). In the meantime i am seriously considering a 2000 Maxima 5sp (Black) or a Blue WRX. The Max i can get for around 14-15k and the WRX used around 18-22k. So if Dodge dicks around too much longer i will go for one of the above. :x

I dont think it will hold its value unless they are very limited which I doubt because sales will be so good. 7500 is the limt for this year so they say. I know next year they will make a whole lto more.


I bought my surpa for 23k with 55k miles on it. I sold it for 23k with 160K miles. I think this is the first time I ever had a car and it actually be an investment.

I had it for 4.5 years.

They're not going hold their resale value well at all. It's a turbo performance car and people will know that it has been well used. So basically you won't get jack for it.

Well, that should apply to the WRX as well then, by your definition.

Re: Do you think depreciation will be as bad as regular neon

Do you guys think the depreciation on the srt-4 will be as bad as it is for normal neons??
With any specialty car, the deprecation is based on production numbers, demand from buyers, and current local supply of the vehicle.

The numbers of production will determine and the demand for the car will tell you the value of worth.

Right now, there is no car in America that holds a better value than the hand-built Viper. The production numbers are low and the demand is high for the use car. Even the SRT-10, it has a current premium of 10K plus over MSRP to get the car.

The Dodge Neon for the model 2004 will be refresh and share the EVO under carriage from Mitsu.

Lets hope it will get the AWD unit also.
Are you sure your not talking about the 2005 model??
