2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: Short Gearing

September 10, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye

I hadn't driven our 2013 Dodge Dart before this week. And other than a few comments about its transmission, I had no prior impressions. Here's my first observation. At 70 the engine is cranking at about 2,600 rpm in sixth gear, which is enough to be noticeable — disturbing, even — in the cockpit.
