Used Car: 2014 Dodge SRT Viper Review
The 2014 Dodge SRT Viper has quick acceleration and excellent handling when on a track, reviewers reported, but they said its rough ride over streets makes it less enjoyable as a daily vehicle.
The 2014 Dodge SRT Viper comes standard with a V10 engine that critics said delivers immediate response when you press the gas pedal. The engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission that test drivers said has short throws, but changing gears requires more effort than they expected. According to the EPA, the 2014 Viper earns 12/19 mpg city/highway, which is poor for the class. The Viper has incredible grip when cornering and responsive steering, according to critics, but they noted as a daily vehicle these sensitive attributes can make it a bit of a challenge to drive. They noted that the brakes could be better and the suspension is very firm, which makes for an uncomfortable ride over uneven pavement.
Auto journalists commented that the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper's cabin is made with high-quality materials and matches up well with other luxury sports cars' interiors. They said the race car-style seats are supportive, and the trunk is big for the class. The Viper's low height makes it difficult for occupants to enter and exit the vehicle, and auto writers reported that outward visibility is poor. Standard features include Bluetooth, a Uconnect infotainment system, a USB port, automatic climate control, keyless entry and push-button start. Available features include a Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system, leather upholstery, power-adjustable seats, navigation and a rearview camera. The Uconnect system is user-friendly and has a big touch screen, critics said.
