Dodge Dart was Unjustly killed

Reviewed by YY

I like this car, Looks awesome , feels a lot more expensive than it is, Leather all around, 2 big screens, exterior is very sporty (I have The GT with Sport Hood) It was indeed killed unjustly by idiots at Dodge to make more Suvs.

Practical but Fun

Reviewed by Farran

When I went looking for my car, I had to be really budget-conscious, but I wanted something that was practical, yet also fun to drive. The Dart Rallye fits these criteria neatly; it is fun to drive, but it gets good mileage. It handles really well, but is comfortable on rough roads and long drives. It is not a race car, but it has a lot of get-up-and-go nonetheless. I got a higher-level trim and can still pay for it on a fresh-out-of-college kind of job with barely any credit history. Good show, Dodge. I am going to note that this car is really not a sports car per se, but it is way more fun to drive than any other sedan, and some coupes, that I have driven. It has good acceleration, making highway speed quickly with enough muscle left to pass things on two-lane roads without much complaint, and moves comfortably through turns at speed. The comfort should not go without emphasis, either. I ended up moving from Oklahoma to Illinois shortly after I bought this car. The drive was about 11 hours, and I stopped a total of three times, but had no soreness anywhere afterwards. It fit most of the stuff from my apartment that was not furniture, too. Later, I moved a friend to Illinois from Oklahoma, requiring me to drive both ways on consecutive days, and same thing, no soreness. I am legitimately not concerned about comfort or reliability on long hauls. The entertainment system has a very intuitive layout with lots of options. I usually play music through Bluetooth from my phone and can make and take calls easily during a drive. People never have trouble hearing me during calls even at highway speed (which is 75 mph on the turnpikes in Oklahoma). It has a Settings tab, as well, which includes numerous customization options for various things you might not expect. For example, I turned off the horn honk when locking the car with the remote, an excellent option because I work late and live in an apartment complex where most people are asleep by the time I get home. The screen is large, which does wonders for the usefulness of the backup camera. Also, it looks awesome in orange. Only real problem I have had is that people occasionally try to get me to race them (I ignore them, but it is annoying). It came with tinted windows, which I did not particularly like, but it has not caused any real problems, either. All in all, my experience has been pretty good. The Dart is an excellent mix of practicality and fun. If you need the practicality of a sedan, but want a little bit of excitement now and again, this may be the car for you.

I am happy with the Dart, it's roomy for the size. It has great gas mileage. So far really happy with it, best/nicest/funnest car I've ever owned.

Surprisingly Nice Design

I bought this car mostly for the fuel economy, and have come to be surprised with how stylish it is both inside and outside. Not often do you buy a fuel efficient compact car and get a nice design. I am also very please with the performance, as it accelerates and handles better than other compact cars.

Good vehicle for students

It's a great car for getting around town. Doesn't have much get up and go, and the bad thing is that there aren't many performance parts for theses cars. Reliability has been pretty decent. Only problem I've had after 23k miles was getting water inside the headlight (which was entirely my fault; forgot to put back panel for headlight access under wheel well and water shot up in there). I think it looks great with the Alfa Romeo design language. I highly recommend getting the upgraded U connect touch screen, as I have the basic radio and it's not that great.

A deplorable excuse of a vehicle

Least reliable car I've ever had. The team assured that it was to be an easy fix. But, not so- in less than a week, the car returned to the shop via towing.

Great Car, Good Price, Bigger than I Thought

I was looking for a new car and thought that the Dart's were pretty cool and sporty looking vehicles. The only thing that I didn't like was that many of them have the "auto-stick" and I was looking for a 6-speed manual transmission. I got put in a regular dart with the auto-stick and didn't particularly want it. The dealer I went through found me the 6-speed manual, and it is an AMAZING car. Fast, Sporty, Comfortable. I'd buy another one.

Surprisingly good car for the money now ...

Now that these cars are being closed out ( no 2017 models ) there are good bargains available for a nice general purpose vehicle. Folding rear seat allows some hauling with the car. Good features and decent styling. 2.0L engine is somewhat underpowered but 2.4L is peppy. Drive both before you select the 2.0L engine!
