2013 Dodge Dart: Touchscreen Visibility
November 19, 2013
Our long-term 2013 Dodge Dart has a great navigation system. However, our staff has delivered mixed reviews on the optional Alpine audio system (I think it sounds pretty good, though) and the complicated controls for the air-conditioning.
The design of the controls is irrelevant when you can't see them at all, though.
With a setting sun behind you, the Dart's touchscreen display becomes nearly impossible to see. The shiny trim around the center console is pretty blinding, too. Depending on the direction of your commute, this could be pretty annoying each day, especially if you forget your sunglasses at home.
