Re: Srt4 dart
I won't buy one and I work there. Heavy and slow is why. Now, I have a few buddies who purchased them and if they do 65 on the interstate, they can get 41mpg in the Dart Aero with the 1.4L turbo DDC package. So, if you are looking for good gas mileage, maybe a Dart is for you after all. The FIAT Abarth is light, so it is a little zippier than the Dart. It gets mid to upper 30s, according to a friend who has one. But, the old school Shelbys and Neon SRT4s (like mine) will run circles around the Dart for a couple more years. Hopefully, the slow sales sends a message to the folks in charge of small cars to add da turbo and quick. I don't see it happening to the World Gas or Tigershark engines. Not unless they send long block to a 3rd party (which has been done before).
