    This replaced the neon. It has something going for it.

    its supposed to be a replacement for the neon but its very large and bulky for what it was being used for

    originally dodge was supposed to have it be a dodge version of the mitsu lancer, but they make it so large it doesnt do anything

    motortrend said it was a nice try but it weighs nearly 3500lbs and is as slow as they come

    Caliber got assraped in a recent C&D comparo.
     
  13. Base weight
     
  14. And with 300 HP I dont think that weight will matter much :bowdown:

    plus its a domestic car companie's attempt at over throwing an import, which means that it will utilize cheap materials thrown together and a chalpy built motor as opposed to engineering something new

    dont get me wrong i'm a huge mopar fan, i love alot of their old stuff, but domestics cannot keep up with imports with the amount of money they;re forced to pay their workers due to labor unions

    true but the engine is so damn underpowered it doesnt matter

    the r/t version is pushing 3,500 and is just as slow
     
  18. At low to mid 20s its going to obliterate anything in its class even more-so than the SRT4

    I don't think the bang for the buck quotient is bad, but there are definitely other cars I'd rather have for the same money.
