Why the 2013 Dodge Dart may not be the best choice…..

2013-Dodge-Dart-Exterior

Here it is, the 2013 Dodge Dart. It’s models include¬†automatic transmission, manual transmission, and auto-shift manual. Each model is equipped with overdrive as well. Many admire the style of the Dart’s build, and what is noteworthy is how easily the vehicle can be customized. The vehicle, however, has issues regarding the power train, window side air bags, and emergency/parking brakes. There are consumer reviews that make statements about the engine stalling and not starting. ¬†There were also several people who mentioned the e-brake freezing and not disengaging or engaging at all. There were many reports about weathering; the paint on the outside is known for chipping. Electrical work was also an issue, the dashboard lights are known to go crazy and the thermostats are known for not being responsive to driver controls. To top this off, people have complained about their transmission fluid leaking. I guess from my perspective I would say that if you plan on buying this car, always keep an eye out for the telltale signs of transmission or engine failure; and have a plan in mind for issues that appear. It’s also a good idea to get convenience packages from Chrysler, since they have positive reviews on their service & protection.
