**edited June 2017, added part 2 below** List of things I'd look for when considering adding an SRT-4 to my fleet: It should be noted that I prefer stock, non-molested cars. That being said, use this list to slowly chip away at the price of the car YOU are looking at, to what is reasonable...
Thats the world we live in now with most people going to Facebook to get their automotive answers when a quick forum search typically will get so much better information and answers/pictures/first hand experience... Too many people who just NEED instant gratification without the willingness to work for it.
Well your thread was hard to follow but I like the fire in you! LOL Follow ToasterOven's link and read the buying thread first! Some important things are listed in there about the car. Then read about the different Upgrade Paths. Next - common issues.
Be sure to RUN THE VIN and pay for carfax report. I dont hardly trust any of these cars for sale w less than 75k miles on them. The clusters can be swapped and read diff mileage.

If youre serious about getting into the cars then all your google search history all start with "Dodge neon srt 4". Good luck

It’s been awhile since I bought my 04 in October 03. She’s got 91,200 miles. Everything is stock/OEM/original except filters and shift bushings. Impetus for the restore: peeling clear coat, cheaper than buying a new car, and I LOVE my SRT-4.
I got a number of dealer parts the...
I need a new gasket for the thermostat as mine has developed a very SLOW leak but the dealer wants $8 for it since it comes with a new thermostat. Anyone know where to get one or at least a part # besides the dealer?
