2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye Long-Term Road Test

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: Two Speedometers

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye

Good thing there is a digital speedo option in our long-term 2013 Dodge Dart, because I have trouble reading the regular dial.

The way the red pattern goes around the white lines and numbers combined with the white tip on the needle, makes it hard for me to read at a glance. Maybe if the needle was a different color like yellow or blue, it wouldn't play tricks on my eyes.

Scott thinks I'm nuts but Monty agrees with me. What do you say?

I hate the gauges on the Dart. This feature shouldn't be hard to get right, but Dodge chose the Tron route rather than the Volvo route (just look at the gauges on an S60). They're so bad, it would be enough to make me not buy the car.
