2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: Easy To Check the Oil

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye

After putting quite a few miles on our 2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye, I decided to check the oil before handing the car over to another editor. This is actually a pretty pleasant experience, because the basic service points are well marked and the dipstick is easy for an average-size adult to reach.

It's also a really sturdy piece of metal (thicker than the dipsticks you typically see in cars in this price range), and reading the oil level was no problem. It's a little tricky to reinsert into the tube, which is located a little farther below the plastic engine cover than I'd like. In all, though, this exercise took maybe 15 seconds, and the oil level was fine.
