March 3, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The 2014 Dodge Dart has been named a “Best Bet” in the compact car category of this year’s edition of The Car Book.

It is the second consecutive year the Dart has been so honored.

The recognition is based on an analysis of wide-ranging information collected from government and independent sources. The analysis is conducted by The Car Book and the Center for Auto Safety and considers crash test results, safety features, rollover rating, preventative maintenance schedules, repair costs, warranty coverage, fuel economy, complaint data and insurance costs.

The 2014 Dodge Dart achieved an overall score of “9.” The highest possible score is “10.”

“The Car Book’s recognition of the Dart as a ‘Best Bet’ for two years running confirms what our customers are telling us,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO–Dodge Brand. “The Dodge Dart has unique combination of distinctive styling, fun-to-drive performance, up to 41 mpg, segment-leading safety features, and easy-to-use technology, all combined, making it a tremendous value.”

The 2014 Dodge Dart scored “9” for having low repair costs, and “8” in the key categories of warranty coverage, rollover rating, fuel economy and crash tests.

The 2014 Dart recently was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The car also boasts a 5-star rating – the highest possible assessment – in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s crash-testing program.

The Dodge Dart also tops the compact car segment in total quality, according to Strategic Vision Total Quality Index

The Dart’s performance is enhanced by more than 60 available safety and security features. The list includes 10 standard-equipment air bags, a total unsurpassed in the compact-car segment.

The 2014 Dodge Dart further benefits from a high-strength-steel content-ratio of 68 percent, one of the highest in the industry.

Equipped with a 1.4-liter turbocharged, intercooled I-4 engine with MultiAir electro-hydraulic valve-actuation and six-speed manual transmission, the Dart also earns a highway fuel-economy rating of 41 miles per gallon (mpg).

Mopar 13 Being Recalled for Side Airbag Problem

Nov 14, 2013 - 11:23 AM - by cereal killer

Chrysler is recalling 421 2013 Dodge Dart Mopar 13 special-edition models because of a potential side airbag problem. Chrysler said in a statement:

The vehicles feature seating that is modified by an upfitter. Subsequent inspections revealed a restraint-system installation procedure had not been consistently followed, leaving some seat-mounted side airbags subject to reduced function.
So far no injuries, accidents or complaints have been linked to the recall, but as you know side airbags can save a life so don't wait around on getting this fixed. The recall is expected to begin in December and owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. Dealers will inspect the cars and if an assembly error is discovered, the airbag will be correctly installed. Here's the recap:

  • Chrysler is recalling 421 2013 Dodge Dart Mopar 13 special-edition models because of a potential side airbag problem.
  • Some seat-mounted side airbags may have "reduced function."
  • The recall will begin in December

Mopar 13 owners keep us posted if this problem affected your car.
