2013 Dodge Dart: Coldish or Warmish?

April 9, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart

In an earlier post, Editor James Riswick noted how unnecessarily complicated the air-conditioner controls of our 2013 Dodge Dart are. But I'd like to point out how the temperature controls themselves are lacking in a crucial detail: degrees. Looking at this screen how can you tell how warm or cold you are making it with that slider? I mean, is this a thing now?

Maybe it's just me. I like a visual indicator telling me that I'm making the cabin 70 degrees instead of 80. Does this lack of information bug you, too?
