I have owned my new Dart a little over two months and so far I am very pleased with it. The Dart won out over the focus and cruse because I liked the interior far more. It is simple staightforward, uncluttered and very comfortable. I have the rallye with the 1.4 litre turbo w/manual and I am averaging around 32 to 35 mpg depending on how much city driving I do. The ony complaint I have is that
first gear could be taller because you only get rolling and need to shift. Also sometimes there is an annoying little rattle in the floating island bizel...but I am very picky so this may not be noticeable by everyone. Overall I am very happy with the car and glad I bought it!
Love the interior and the. 8.4 inch screen....also really like the exterior look!
I had my 2013 Dart for almost 2 weeks and not happy as I thought.
1st problem on the days it was very cold had a problem with remote start then sat in car turn key everything came on except the engine so called a friend thinking it was battery he got in and turned key shift gear then turn key again car started.
When I finally got to work after work I didn't use the remote start got in car and tried to start manual did the same thing I was not very happy.
I live in Pa and travel up hills & mountains the Dart is not very good accelerating on hills and the RPM seems to race.
I do love the look and the electronics of it but not what it seems
