"Terrible Engine; Great Looks"1.0 starson by savagefamily
Pros: Exterior and interior is awesome. Dodge did a great job luring people into the dart by looks alone.
Cons: Engine is horrible. 1.4l Turbo has major flaws and needs an engineer that actually knows what they are doing. Dodge engineers are clueless and show signs of total incompetency. I would wait until 2014 or later until Dodge gets a clue.
Summary: Engine runs rough, hesitation, major backfires and turbo lag.Under cold conditions, the car jerks when turbo is engaged. Dodge was trying to rewrite their image but I cannot stress enough that they are baiting you in with this car. The car looks great but the engine performs like a P.O.S. We drove the Chevy Cruze and the interior wasn't as nice but the performance is much better. I would go with the Chevy Cruze until Dodge fixes the Dart engine problems. We are regretting our purchase.
Thanks for your submission!
