2013 Dodge Dart: Beware of Trunk Spikes

February 25, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart

Since I was couch-ridden with back spasms, it was up to my friend Chris to load up the Dart come check-out time at our Lake Arrowhead cabin this past weekend. After the second load, he came back inside holding his cut and bleeding hand. Was he the victim of a bear? An enraged raccoon? Nope, Dodge Dart attack.

While playing that age-old game of Trunk Tetris, Chris made the unfortunate discovery of these sharp metal spikes that hang down from the left side of the parcel shelf. I don't know why they're there, but they are definitely a safety hazard. Not only can you be easily injured, but as Chris pointed out, it's not exactly ideal for whatever you've stuffed in the trunk, either.
