2013 Dodge Dart: Wants Oil
December 09, 2013
We're approaching 18,000 miles and the 2013 Dodge Dart is barking for oil. We last changed it at around 10,000 miles. That's a longer interval than most purists would tolerate, but not unusual among new cars that can go up to 15,000 without an oil service (our former Jaguar XF). I'm no purist, but even that interval seems a little long for a turbocharged engine.
Apparently, the Dodge Dart will throw up an alert anywhere between 6,000-8,000 miles depending on how hard the car's sensors judge the car has been driven. Clearly an exact science, then.
