      So it ended without so much as a picture of the last one made, or any kind of news release or other official goodbye? That's pretty pathetic.

      Apparently FCA was glad to see the back of the last one as it drove out the door and didn't even want to mark the occasion.

      BTW here is another good article: Dodge Dart born as a bargaining chip, and accursed ever since
      Lots of misinformation in that autonews article comments. You can tell most of those posters dont own a Dart and have never driven one.

      you know the funny thing is, i said WAY back that Sergio didnt care about Chrysler and how he was gonna crap all over it and NO one believed me. lol.
      Is there a sedan version of the new MK4 Focus? I don't do 4 door hatchbacks, no trunk space.

      I've generally stayed away from Ford due to their interiors. I can't stand the 10,000 buttons on the steering wheel. My dad is a Ford guy, 2 Expeditions, 2 Escapes, and 2 Edges. The only Ford I truly enjoyed was the 2.0T Fusion I had for two weeks as a rental. Very comfortable and lots of power from the turbo engine using only regular octane gasoline.

      Same here. I like the exterior of the Focus, but the interior is the most confusing and chaotic jumble of buttons and switches I've ever seen. That and all the chiseled edges was a turnoff for me as well. The Dart's interior is so much cleaner-looking and better laid out.

      Well at least I got a Dart Refrigerator magnet at my dealer. No brochures for product or accessories either after '13.
      I was wondering though about the parts availability questions raised earlier.Given that the current Cherokee is built off the same platform as the Dart, there has to be quite a bit of overlap in parts with those vehicles in all areas of production,which I would think would help with many items being available in the future.
      That new model Cherokee is so hideous looking to me that I have never bothered looking at one,but is selling well.Give me the old boxy one with a body on frame please.

      Other than the 2.4L engine, and maybe some brake/wheel assembly parts, the overlap between the Cherokee and the Dart in terms of parts is actually pretty close to zero. They're based on the same basic CUSW architecture, but otherwise... the Dart, Cherokee, and 200 are all fairly different.

      I think it was mentioned before that "sharing the same platform" simply means it fits the same doohickey the unibody is bolted onto as it moves down the line, not a commonality of frame or major components.

      There are -some- parts that are the same most of the time. For example, the Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot & Dodge Caliber, were all on the same platform. Just like the Jeep Cherokee, the Dart, and the 200 are.
