CarComplaints.com Seal Of Avoid Like The Plague

CarComplaints.com 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

May 112013

Dart Limited 1.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,500 miles


When I purchased my Dart I was expecting to get around 41 miles per gallon but instead I have only averaged 33 miles per gallon. Recently I replaced the spark plugs as the manual calls for and now I am only getting around 30 miles per gallon. I have taken this vehicle back to the shop numerous times, at my expense, to find out that there is nothing I can do because the dealer says that the fuel to air mix is correct and no issues are in the computer.

I am sick an tired of this POS vehicle especially since I have never, and mean never received close to the 41 miles per gallon, except when I pout it in neutral and coast down a damn mountain. I will never buy another Dodge in my life time and I have been a Mopar person for some time.

  • Manual transmission
  • 423 miles

Sticker said: 39 MPG HWY, 27 MPG CITY. I have 12,104 miles on the car and I am averaging 23.7 MPG, about half of the mileage is Freeway, so that means I am getting really lousy mileage compared to the sticker MPG. I should have known better.
