2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: 15,000 Miles
October 11, 2013
Our 2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye hit 15,000 miles last Saturday. I was driving in fast-moving freeway traffic at the exact moment of the milestone and had to settle for this 15,025-mile photo of the instrument panel.
The Dart and I spent a quiet weekend running errands and listening to post-season baseball on the radio. However, our red sedan's first 15,000 miles have not been as uneventful as we'd like.
If you look at our maintenance-related updates on the Dart, you'll see that we've already dealt with a broken door handle and a windshield that spontaneously cracked from the inside out. More recently, though, the Dart randomly went into limp-home mode while our editor in chief was at the wheel, which was kind of a drag. It's too bad, because apart from these issues, the Dodge Dart has some real positives. I find it comfortable for commuting, there's ample storage, and the audio-navigation interface is easily best-in-class.
