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.

Parking brake released inside the car, however the brake itself never disengaged. E-brake is completely shot now. This car sucks.

Dart Limited

  • Manual transmission
  • 7,468 miles

This problem has happened twice now and I have been very lucky that no one has been injured. The first time it took out a small tree and did $4500 worth of damage to my car. The second time I was standing next to it and was able to jump in and stop it. Chrysler has inspected the vehicle twice and has reported there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. They have not shared their reports with me. I'm sure they have nothing to hide. I guess I will wait for the next time it happens and injures someone before Chrysler will do anything.
