I did get to take it out last Sunday and play with it for the first time and I love the seats they fit you like a well made glove..I also love the manual shift option on the automatic wow it's fun to drive in that mode !!
Great car all around...And my Dealership Rocks !! Thats a big plus in my book !!
Maybe So What Do You Think ?
10,000 Problem-Free Miles !!!
- Engine: 1.4-Liter Inline-4 16-Valve MultiAir® Intercooled Turbo
- Transmission: 6-Speed Manual Transmission
- Current mileage: 10,000+ ... averaging ~33.5 mpg per tank
- Driving style: I strive for optimal gas mileage during my commute (in stop-n-go traffic) ... but I'm not afraid to 'put my foot in it' or to drive agressively on a windy canyon road!
- Type of driving (Highway: ~60% City: ~30% Country: ~10%)
Other then some very minor (& quickly resolved) "issues" in the interior (a mismatched grab handle & a visor clip 'cover' fell off), I would say that my 4 months of Dart ownership has been a very Positive Experience!
Except for the grille shutter problem (which I still think was caused by the body shop that repaired the front) I have had no problems with my Red Rallye. The shifter is a little stiff when cold but I am quite happy with it. I just hit 7800 miles.
What are the steps to replace the Antennae? Where did you buy it? Thank you!
How can you tell if you have a grille shutter problem? Thank You!
The car overheating in city traffic would be one indicator
Well, I hit 1000 miles today. No mechanical or electrical problems so far. I have one tiny rattle from the plastic piece behind the interior door handle, but that is it. My city fuel mileage is running 24-25 mpg, right on target.
Mostly highway (70%-30%), City
We're trying to keep it above 30mpg (have seen 40mpg highway). But sometimes feeling the turbo is worth the loss in mpg...
We love the car. There will be a few changes upgrades though...
