Dude I get your point and I wish everyone on the planet earth drove a Chevy. That cheapass Neon is one hell of a buy for 19 grand. They are selling a hell of a lot of them so someone gets it. It is not just about horsepower, look at the specs for that car, that car handles and breakes with the best of them for that kind of money. My point is, Chevy/GM is perfectly capable of matching or exceeding the SRT-4 and and any Chevy fan should expect that.
