2013 Dodge Dart: Touchscreen Visibility

November 19, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart

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.

Compare this... mess... with the Forte's fine touchscreen and climate control layout, and you'll see why Fiasler can't give these turds away.
