2013 Dodge Dart: This Is How You Drive

2013 Dodge Dart

Confession: I'm very picky about how people drive. Basically, hands at 9 and 3, always pass on the left and always look ahead. Amazingly there's a bunch of people who don't know any of this. Cough::Angelenos::cough. Well, last weekend I was passenger to one such person. He drives with both wrists at the 12 o'clock position and also sticks to the speed limit (driving 70 mph in a 70-mph zone, but I tried not to be too mad at that since he probably was just worried about fuel economy). ANYway, you're probably wondering what this has to do with our 2013 Dodge Dart.

After four days of his driving, I needed to let loose, so I jumped behind the wheel of our Dart. Leaving work a bit early there was still some traffic, but it was light enough that I was able to dance around the slow drivers. I was impressed by how well the Dart handled itself, even if my esteemed colleague Brent Romans was underwhelmed by it in that respect. It may not have impressed him on the twisties but it didn't let me down when I just wanted to DRIVE around slow movers quickly.
