Service Transmission Light On

2013 Dodge Dart

This problem may be covered under warranty. Ask your Dodge dealer. Seal Of Avoid Like The Plague 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.

problem #3

Jul 052014

Dart Limited 1.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,500 miles


On Vacation...called nearest dealer...told by service dept that they were too busy to help us but we could bring the car in and leave it and they would get to it when possible...could be days. We couldn't do that so we risked it and drove on not knowing what would happen. Later that day the warning message went away.

I have had my Dart for a year now and have been to the dealer's service center 3 times for the same issue. Hoping this last "repair" will solve the issue. Really displeased with my vehicle

service transmission light on

I'm not very happy with my 2013 Dodge Dart! I leased my Dart in May of this year and it now only has 5100 miles on it!

The service transmission light has appeared on the dashboard about 3-4 different times, the touch screen goes black every now and then and the cover to the gas tank in which they were supposed to replace due to a recall fell off yesterday as I was pumping gas. I called the dealership back to let them know that I am STILL experiencing the same issues that they supposedly had fixed and they acted like it was no big deal! To is a big deal because I am paying my monthly payment (which isn't cheap for a single mom).

I leased a "new" car so I could feel safe in it and not have issues and here I am having more problems with a new car than I did with my 2007 Ford Focus! Guess I should have kept that car!!
