2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: Flimsy Door Handle
June 14, 2013
Uh, now that can't be good. That's what I said to myself when I opened the 2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye's front passenger door the other day and part of the handle flew off onto the ground.
Now I'm no genius, trust me, but I don't think that's supposed to happen.
I will admit it was a bit more of an "aggressive opening" on my part than usual, as I was in a hurry. But still, this kind of thing shouldn't happen in a brand new, fully modern car.
After a little finagling I was able to pop the piece back into place, and the door works again, but the part that came off now sits a little more loosely on the door.
We'll have the dealer inspect it when we bring the Dart in for its new windshield.
