My Dodge Dart with 2.4L engine was recalled for excessive oil consumption. On 09/09/2021 the vehicle was brought in for service and I was told the PCM was to be reprogrammed and that would fix the excessive oil consumption issue. I am now 3,000 miles after the PCM repair and I am still burning a quart of oil. I called the dealer, O'Daniel Automotive Group in Fort Wayne Indiana, on 01/28/2022 to speak with a service rep and was told they weren't available and I would get a return call. Today is 02/05/2022 and no one has returned the call.

When I first got this car three years ago I had a shift problem in the transmission it got stuck in the gear and I couldn't pull the key out when I did some research I realize that there was a recall so of course I went to the dealership and have them take a look at it to fix it they said that I will still be charge in the problem wasn't even originally fixed they rigged it they just made it to where I could pull off but I was still charged and now a couple years later I am having transmission problems again and the dealership is saying that I need a transmission as I am doing a research I realize that my transmission again has a recall on it.

While driving down my street and accelerating, the car stalled out. No warning lights on dash. Had a hunch and checked the oil. It was nearly bone-dry. Added two quarts and it appears to be functioning normally. I believe the issue to be excessive oil consumption. With the lack of warning light, and just unusual occurrence, I could have been killed. I'm just glad I wasn't on the freeway (as other Dart owners I've talked to have been).

Clutch pedal gets stuck close to the floor upon start up and clutch may not re-engage when up shifting. Happened on a busy city street as well as on the highway when trying to merge into the flow of traffic. This should have been a recall, as the second owner I was never notified and the time of the warranty expired although I am still under the mileage but they refuse to help me. I would have known it was not just driver error when it first happened summer of 2019 if I had been properly notified. Instead it was not until Sept 27 2020 when the clutch pedal started sticking that I researched and found the info of the service bulletin. 4 dealerships had my car multiple times and none of them mentioned this either.

Clutch pedal remains depressed intermittently on start up and while driving. Their is not enough pressure in the clutch master cylinder for adequate resistance or to raise the pedal to its standard position. There has been a class action loss suit related to this exact issue on 2013-2015 Dodge Darts but my dealership appears blissfully unaware of the issue. Start case# S1406000001 appears to directly call out this issue but none of the procedures were followed when inspecting my car for clutch related issues. The technical response was "maybe your mat was caught by the clutch pedal?" shortly after leaving the dealership I was unable to shift into first and the pedal was not raising. After 3-4 attempts I was able to get it to raise high enough to disengage and allow me to shift into second, thankfully I was close enough to my home I didnt need to go beyond 2nd gear but for there to be no acknowledgement from the dealership is appalling.

The recall for the gear shift has been worked on by a Dodge service dealer and I'm still having issues if the gear sticking intermittently where I can't switch from drive to park and I get stranded in the highway. I am a single mom with a 5 month old and I am afraid for us. I have taken back to service for a recheck and they say everything is fine. It's not fine! this happens.

Master clutch cylinder / clutch / cvc delete valve complete failure, causing vehicle while in operation to get stuck into gear and clutch to drop to floor. Premature clutch fail due to the cvc delete valve and plastic material used in master cylinder, the cvc delete valve impacts hydraulic pressure of clutch causing a huge safety issue while operating vehicle and driver becomes stranded. The clutch, due to the manufacturing of the plastic fitting disengages making shifting not possible for driver.

My 2015 Dodge Dart has been operating very well until the last few weeks. Recently I will be driving on the road shift the car into any gear accelerate and the rpms will go to 6000-6500, but the car goes no where. This has happened to me every time I get into it and now I don't feel safe. I took it to two different dealerships which both of them stated this was a Dodge issue; where there is open lawsuits and lemon law acts in progress for this same issue. The 2016 recall for 2016 Dodge Darts explains every problem I'm having and even says the parts that have gone bad will go bad. It also states that the problem may affect manual transmission 2015 Darts. The Dodge mechanics told me I need a new clutch, throw out bearing, and fly wheel. $2,000 fix in which they said would only be a band aide because it's a defect with Dodge Darts and it will continually happen no matter how I drive or how often I replace the parts. Dodge corporate has occupied most of my week on the phone and they keep denying me assistance, plus keep closing my cases with no reason why.
