Glad that you stayed with Mopar. The red SRT might have been interesting though... :D

It would have, I'm still a little upset I didn't get it. the test drive with the little grandma from the car lot was interesting.

The Mopar dart's seem pretty cool...I looked at one and they have some really nice features and they look great. Just need SRT power under the hood and it would be a perfect compact car.

Great choice none the less. You will get a lot of trouble-free miles out of her.

i would wonder how similar the 1.4 multiair and 2.4 multiair engines are and if you could put the 1.4 turbo setup on the 2.4 and have a "srt" dart

turbo would be way too small for a 2.4l its tiny.. and the motor is completely different

i would think some sort of turbo upgrade would be in order but i just thought both being "multiair" there might be some possibility in parts swap if they have the same head but if not then to the custom world it would be!

How much was the SRT-4 you looked at? Just curious as to what those are going for around these parts.

looks like an old guy owned it being so stock and the chrome b pillars and would explain the lack of mileage that's a decent deal for the mileage but I bet 8k cash would get them to sell just start at 5k with a low ball and work up to where you want to be and be like look I got cash are we makin a deal or what learn from Richard!
