2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: Driver Seat Comfort

March 6, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye

Sitting in the driver seat of our 2013 Dodge Dart is like spooning with an inflatable ninja turtle. The entire seating area is divided into many separate sections, and they are all puffy. Even after driving it for an entire weekend, I never got used to it. I still feel like the seat is constantly trying to push me out. There's also a channel running down the length of the seat back and the cushion, which would be great if I had a spiny back (and backside).

Our own James Riswick has made his similar opinion known already. For reference, James is 6'3" and I'm about 5'8", so this isn't necessarily a tall guy problem. I do like our car's Redline paint, though.

    "Sitting in the driver seat of our 2013 Dodge Dart is like spooning with an inflatable ninja turtle." That has to be one of the top 10 single lines ever written on Edmunds/Insideline.

  • Aren't these seats unique to the Rallye trim? If so, then prospective buyers should be advised to check out other variants to see if the seating is more comfortable. Regardless, I'd love to test drive a Dart next time I have my car serviced.

    The leather seats need work too. If there's one thing that Dodge still seems to be struggling with... it's seats. The same marshmallow puff type of seat was supposed to go into the Viper as well, but the CEO said they were "f***ing Burcaloafers" and asked Sabelt to come in and help.
