If the ride seems harsh in the front end make sure they have taken
the shipping lock blocks of the front struts as a number of dealers
have not done this on the SRT4s.

not worth it. buy a used, well kept skittle.
they have tq steer like a bitch, are slower than the neon srt, dont handle near as well, and i absolutely HATE the shifter position.
i drove one for 4 months, 450 miles a day, every day, 5 days a week. fun to drive yes, as fun as the neon? no. seems faster, but thats cause of the tq steer and 6 speed. they also have a bit too much road noise for my taste. very reliable, though. could handle whatever we threw at it, and when it reached end of test, we sent it back to chrysler with 150k miles on it. body was a lil beat, but still ran good. to the best of my knowledge, it lived off the last 30k miles of its life on a dyno for emissions testing, meaning it lasted 180k miles.
so i guess with the correct mods, it can be a great little car, but for me, its just a good little car, and i like my skittle better...

Pretty interesting read, CD.
Least the 2.4 sounds like a rock solid engine.

I have driven the production SRT-4, one of the December batch...

Things I saw:

- Terrible torque steer.
- The Sunroof is a complete joke
- Engine screams power
- The lock stops were not removed, so the front end was all jumpy!
- Rims were nice and shiny
- Shifting was exceptional
- Clutch action was weird and could take some getting used to
- had 1 mile on the odometer
- 6th gear was nice
- It had cruise
- Overall, I wanted to hop back in my Skittle.
