daughter loves the car but wishing I would have given my business to a more deserving dealership, that's all that matters to me. She was happy so whatever.

Don’t drive in the rain

by Jnorttx from Caldwell Texas | May 20, 2020

This car had 4 recalls in the first 2 years I owned it, it was terrible to drive in the rain I almost died hydroplaning several times. The Bluetooth never wanted to work half the time, the parts on the car we’re all cheap generic crappy ones, I had to replace the battery once a year, the shifter broke off in the first year and I was on a road trip and had to drive 100 miles only being able to drive in forward. Paint chipped easily, seat’s stained easily, it’s so low to the ground every dip scrapes the bottom and if you pull to close to the sidewalk lawd be with you. Horrible car!!

I love my car

by jennifer44131 from Tualatin, OR | December 12, 2019

I have had this car for about 3 years- I love it. I have never had an issue with it - and I drive plenty. It's comfortable, dependable and I like the way it looks.

2016 Dodge Dart Overview


The 2016 Dodge Dart carries over into the new model year without significant changes. The only additions are a new optional hood that appears sportier and 18-inch black wheels are now standard on GT models.

The Dart’s calling card is its performance, offering a sporty alternative to several of the stodgier members of the compact class like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. Its tighter steering rack and four-wheel independent suspension provide a more engaging ride and driving experience.

Our favorite exterior feature on the Dart is its “racetrack” LED taillights, which get piping to make it appear as one continuous bar of light instead of individual LEDs. This gives the Dart a styling cue to match the larger Charger sedan and adds a bit of flair, especially at night. A small, thin front-grille is up front, feeding into curves that run down the side of the Dart giving it a slippery, aerodynamic look. 16-inch steel wheels are standard with larger 17-inch steel or aluminum wheels also available. Optional active grille shutters, which open and close based on vehicle speed and engine temperature, help to improve fuel economy.

The Dart also has good powertrain diversity, offering three engine options. The base engine is a 160-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, while a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder that makes the same horsepower is optional. The turbocharged mill may offer similar performance, but does give you an upgrade in fuel economy thanks to its smaller size. Topping the range is a larger, 184-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Transmission types include a six-speed manual transmission, or choice of two six-speed automatic transmissions, one with auto-manual shift control.

One of our favorite things about the Dart’s cabin is its roominess, which gives it a leg up on the competition when it comes to interior volume, good news for rear seat passengers. Standard interior features include power windows and locks, auxiliary audio input, and cloth seating surfaces. Upgrades include a power driver’s seat, heated leather seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Also available is Chrysler’s UConnect infotainment system, that comes with Bluetooth connectivity. The system also accepts voice commands and addes SiriusXM satellite radio, and an 8.4-inch touch-screen display.

Standard safety features include ten airbags, electronic stability and traction control, and antilock brakes with brake assist. A rear back up camera and rear cross path detection system are available. The Dart also performed very well in crash tests, earning a full five-star overall rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS.
