2016 Dodge Dart Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 7,580 miles


This 2016 Dart GT has been in for service 13 times since it was purchased in March. The body connector has corroded twice and been replaced along with several corroded wires. The telematics module was also replaced after it tested inconsistent and working only 20% of the time (this is for the uconnect and bluetooth). If you hit 10mph sometimes it likes to accelerate without even touching the gas! while starting the car it now likes to say the keyfob has not been detected even when the key fob is right by the keyless start. The wireless receiver was replaced but it said key fob not detected again. This will make service visit #14! this car has serious computer/electrical issues. The keyfob not being detected issue could be deadly if it does it while the car is being driven and makes the car inoperable.

My 2016 Dodge Dart overheats the RPM goes up and down when the car is in motion. On June 26 my car cut off on me in the middle of the road and it took me ten mins to start it up my check engine light keeps going on and off and every time I take it in they say its nothing wrong with it. My oil pressure light comes on and I have 100 percent oil in my car. When I put on brakes it acts like it doesnt want to stop so ihave to brake farther away from peoples cars.

  • 500 miles
On a city street, tried to accelerate at a stop light with the brake on. Would not accelerate turning left in oncoming traffic.intermittenly (hops) in motion exiting a highway, upon braking I traffic, stopped at a traffic light and in the driveway with the key removed. Tachometer has redlined (6500 RPM + ) moving in traffic at 46 mph on level road and upon take off from a red light. Tachometer has revved to 5500 RPM's on the down side of a hill when on cruse control multiple times when on the highway. The car has jerked severely driving down the highway at approximately 70 mph.intermittently the climate control has difficulty in making a decision on the selection I made and has taken approximately 5 min before the air ( fan ) will engage. All dash lights have flashed when the key fob was pushed to unlock the doors. The auto door locks have failed to lock properly and engaged at 40 mph. The list is longer but my feeling is it is a computer problem and service says there is no code so no problem found. It has been in service 6 times that have been documented. My fear is this car is so defective and is going to kill me and possibly others if the computer fails with the steering or braking.the issues started @ 500 miles on the car, it now has 1900.
