2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye Long-Term Road Test


2013 Dodge Dart SXT: Front Seat

2013 Dodge Dart SXT

A few days ago, I noticed that little tab sticking out of the front passenger seat and wondered what it's intended to do. So I tugged on it and found an odd little storage compartment. The owner's manual says nothing of its intended use, just that "some models may be equipped with storage under the front passenger seat cushion. Pull upward on the seat tether to open the storage compartment."

I found a use for it.

My super market offers a deep discount when shoppers buy six bottles of wine at a time, but that nifty bag is tippy and I'd rather not lay the whole thing down either. Problem solved. The whole thing fits snugly in the front seat thanks to the molded plastic compartment hidden within.
