High Risk if You're on a Budget by An MSN Autos Consumer on 10/20/2012. Trim: 2013 Dodge Dart SE.
Pros: Took a test drive and was fairly impressed. Externally, this is a nice looking car that seems to drive and handle well. The interior material appears acceptable for the car class.
Cons: Reliability is always a big concern and since no specific data is available for this model, you only have history as a guide. (1) First year production of “any” new model car is historically very risky business with high repair and recall rates. (2) This is a Fiat based car. With the exception of the new Fiat 500, Fiat hasn't sold cars in the US in over 30 years. They left because their cars were more unreliable than a Yugo. (3) Chrysler is the producers of a number of vehicles on every “cars to avoid” list... Sebring & Town & Country etc are at the bottom of their class. (4) With the exception of a Viper, I can’t think of one Chrysler built vehicle with a good resale value.
Overall review: I generally liked the car and find it tempting. I find the dash trim a bit tacky however and the long term reliability too high risk for my taste and bank account. Economy doesn’t just mean gas mileage, it also means total cost of ownership and given this vehicles extremely poor pedigree, I consider this a risky purchase until it proves itself otherwise. I’ll likely wait for the face-lifted 2013 Civic or look for at a new Alantra.

IMPORTS BE WARNED ! by Ernest-New Jersey on 08/05/2012. Trim: 2013 Dodge Dart SXT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Bought it in July has 3600 miles already.. back and forth to TN from NJ did that... Great acceleration, fuel mileage is just about what is advertised and just plain fun to drive... Exhaust sounds "mean" but not to worry windows up and light gas pedal you do not hear it at highway speeds... Feels like much bigger car due to the materials used to make it...
Cons: Only con - NO rear speedway tail lights. I am hoping someone at Dodge can answer my question can I add this later...
Overall review: IF you want an american built car that KILLS the imports, Fiat has given us that choice... Thankyou Fiat for adding some pop and flair to the Dodge line up from top to bottom... This car kills it's import competition !! Hands down drive one, you will buy it !! I have the Rallye (SXT) Turbo / 6sp manual and would have it NO other way !!!
