Consumer Reports rated those dead last!".

      Thanks to CR for scaring the buying public away from a nice car.
      the question is why is your boss reading and believing anything published by CR... dont worry about the dart, worry about this judgement as your supervisor

      Unfortunately most sheeple out there read and trust CR. Unless you're one of the few who own something they trash and realize that they're full of it you probably would never be any the wiser.

      I don't trust consumer reports either. Except when they do long term use reviews for the used car market. Otherwise, it's like the comedy of when Car Of The Year or Truck of the year is given to a Corvette, a Camaro, a Silverado, and now a Bolt - just because of the use of new tech that looks good on paper. No published reports though about how GM's start/stop systems are hated by consumers. Or how the AFM contributes to engine and torque tube destruction on a Vette. Twenty years from now there will be articles written of the "age of darkness" in automotive Frankenstein experiments .... all in the name of fuel savings.
      Oh wait.... the articles are already written! But no one pays attention. But who cares., right? People like to trade up and out anyway! Extreme odometer counts on mostly highway driven cars? Big deal. A Chevy Vega could have pulled that off too. Real world brute usage and exposure to the concrete jungle , with a sprinkle of race car pepper and everything crumbles.

      Actually, only a relatively small number of people actually read Consumer Reports directly. Most people get this information from news stories or Internet articles that just summarize what CR has published, with much of the underlying information not included, and various quotes included with limited context.

      I traded my Dart in today for a 2017 Challenger R/T 6 speed manual.Pretty basic unit,Blacktop package and a sunroof.I got top dollar book value for my near mint 2014 Limited with 14,800 miles,which was most appreciated.Buying from the store and keeping it maintained there I am sure helped considerably.
      I always liked the Challenger from when it first came out.On the test drive,as long as the figures looked good to me,I was sold.
      I cannot imagine the Hellcat or new Demon after driving the R/T with a stick.It had me grinning from ear to ear.Even though it is more of a base model,it is more true to its roots without all of the more modern conveniences,which I think is pretty cool.
      Thanks for being such an informative forum,cheers!!!

      Congratulations on your new ride. Now just don't go wrapping it around a tree! I always liked the looks of the new Challengers as well, but I can't afford the gas nor insurance for one.

      Thanks for the kudos Delta Dart.One advantage to being in your early 60's is that the insurance on the Challenger was only a bit over 100 bucks a year more.I really enjoyed my Dart,and the amount of information available here was very helpful to me while I owned it.The gas mileage with the 5.7 in the R/T is not the greatest,and I still have to make a couple of 1,500 mile trips a year to visit aging parents.But that is alright with me,this new car is a hoot.
      I do miss the 8.4 Nav and the Alpine sound system from the Limited.The Challenger R/T is a basic unit,and the sound track from the Hemi is your entertainment system for the most part.Kind of a nice throwback to the old days!

      I'll take listening to the throaty growl of an American V8 to Beyoncé any day of the week and twice on Sundays! Actually I hardly ever even play the radio in my Dart. It annoys my wife because the few times she rides in it she'll turn on the radio and see that I still haven't even bothered to pre-set any of the stations. And I've owned this car for three years!
