Notes: The first year of the new Dodge Dart had a rough start, with owners reporting a disproportionate number of engine and transmission problems.

For transmission, the main complaints are transmission failure & rough shifting. So far, average mileage for transmission failure is 25,000 miles. Not good.

For engine problems, it usually starts with the engine light coming on for any number of reasons: bad sensors, ignition coil replacement, bad wiring, faulty gas cap ... dealers are replacing various components with varying degrees of success, or telling owners they can't duplicate the issue.

2013 Dodge Dart Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 052013

Dart 4-cyl

  • 5,600 miles


While pulling away from a stop sign the accelator peddle stuck under the floor mat. I noticed the factory mat sliding around a month ago and returned the car to the dealer. I was told to buy new after market mats. I removed the driver-side mat and ordered after markets. The new mats have larger lugs to hole them in place. But it moved again and while accelerating away form the stop sign the peddle stuck under the mat. I applied the brake and was able to reach down and pull the peddle up. At this point I have remove all driver-side mats. I also called the Dodge owners help line and was informed that (more or less) it was not their problem. If a less experienced driver had been at the wheel there may have been a much worse out come.
