Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye

AutoGuide Five-Point Inspection

The compact car segment is a hotly contested battleground, so is the Dodge Dart the secret weapon that the American automaker needs it to be, or does it miss the bulls-eye?

With a starting price of $15,995, the Dart is poised to sting the competition in value and affordability. Our tester was outfitted in Rallye trim, along with a manual transmission, Uconnect infotainment system and the 1.4L Turbocharged Multi-Air engine which rings up at the register for $20,635.

    I’ve had personal expereince with both the GM & Ford MyLynk & MyFord Touch respectivlly and I can tell you that the Chrysler Corp. has gone a long way to make sure that their unit works well and it does work great!
    Another point in the DDCT (double dry clutch trans) that Chyrsler had a good handle on back in 2008 with the Dodge Avenger R/T and is even better with the Dart. Ford, after two years now, still can not satisfy their customers. My Focus had been into dealers over 7 times and still slipped thus keeping it from getting the advertised milages by some 25%. It’s gone and replaced by a great Dart.

    Its Dual Dry Clutch Transaxle, also the DDCT was not used previously, debut was in the dart.

    Hmmmm, no. Actually DDCT is dual dry clutch transmission… Not transaxle? Lol

  • Greg

    The Dart Turbo does not require premium fuel as stated above. Regular 87 octane fuel works fine as stated in the owners’ manual.

  • Doug

    Realize that the Dart has three (3) engines and three (3) transmissions two (2) of which are automatics to offer. A lot to offer the average buyer IMHO.

    You must be joking!  $20,000 for a POSmobile!  Buy a 10 to 20 year old Chrysler that was fun then and cheap fun now and put more than $20,000 into your 401K or an IRA.  You can buy a better, used, old car than the cost of the first year’s depreciation on this ****.  Fiat engine my A**.  I gave up on POS Fiat cars in the 70s.

    Wow it sucks to be Canadian if you’re in the market for a domestic car – Same Rallye here is $28,800 in USD!  I’ll stick to imports, thanks…
