rallye 1.4 auto stick poor fuel mileage
By justinmccarter on


2013 Dodge Dart SXT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


well the first 800 miles of the dash showing 30mpg resulting in a hand calculated mpg of 21.4 mpg on my first three tanks, my truck that i traded in is more fuel efficient pulled 14.5mpg in my brutal commute, leaving my 08 king ranch and moving to the dodge costed me an extra 8400$ gain in loan which stipulated 32mpg would of had that loss consumed in 40k less miles, now with the 22mpg i should see the pay off at about 90k miles i have to drive the car before i'm left with 5 years of higher monthly loan payments, not worth it, not trying to rant either, fuel mileage really does no good for the car, radio quality poor like bad Bluetooth device but from all inputs fm,xm,cd

Best Features

the fully lit tail lamp assembly, from a mile away you might be mistaken for a car that is desirable. steering wheel controls are a good factor, better traction with the kuhmo tires vs the continental although they both make some bad cab noise groaning over any asphalt,

Worst Features

transmission hunts gears on back roads/city spends all its time in 6th gear when not shifting three times in 5 seconds, engine power/response is not consistent there fore not reliable, the 900$ radio i expected it to not sound like a tin can (the quality you get with poor blue tooth, well this radio sounds like that from any input even the radio station down the street or cd) radio not nearly loud enough for classic rock, the suspension very poor, rides on the outside edge of the tires in corners allowing the car to slide toward the ditch just before the stability trac activates the breaks and turns your steering wheel straight to the ditch that was not fun/safe any time,
