2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye Long-Term Road Test

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: Flimsy Center Bin Latch

August 5, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye

The 2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye's center armrest opener latch (or the cover for it, anyway) came off in my hand as I tried to access the center bin.

Apparently, I open things too aggressively for the new Dart. Or maybe it's that I have insanely strong hands.

You might remember that several weeks ago part of the outer front passenger door handle broke off on me, though I was able to snap the assembly back together.

Kind of the same story with the center armrest bin. As quickly as the little plastic piece popped off, it also snapped right back on. It does feel a bit looser now, though.

Cheap, cheap, cheap. This car was engineered with less care than is granted to a Chinese knockoff.
