2013 Dodge Dart SXT: Questionable Build Quality

March 13, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart SXT

I opened the rear door to load something in the back seat and heard an awful plastic-popping "clack-clack-clunk!" It sounded like something was about to break (see video after the break).

A simple hex-wrench saves the day but it does make one wonder what else might be loose and where. This is the kind of stuff that kills consumer confidence.

It's a car built by Fiat and Dodge, how much build quality do you expect?
