Re: To buy or not to buy?!?! 56k beware
She drove it yesterday and liked it so I think I'm going to go for it. This caliber SRT-4 is perfect for here in Germany because of its size. With narrow streets in the villages and whindy back roads driving a full size car can be a bit of a pain in the arse, and driving the suburban I basically have to "Bully" my way around.
The SRT-4 is just what I was looking for too in a car, tons of power, great handling, ridiculous stopping power and room for the family (wife and 3 kids, 2 of which have to be in booster seats because of German Laws) and still room in the back for luggage/groceries/etc.
Dodges reliability rep was my biggest reservation as well, but with a 7 year/70K mile warranty I'll give it a chance and the SRT division does it right.
The second runner up, car wise, was the Subaru WRX and I just can't warm up to the looks of the new body style.
