After I found a spare on eBay and put it in my trunk my mileage didn't change one bit. It did come in handy though last fall when I ran over something in the road and ended up with a flat just a half-mile later. Whatever I hit put a nasty gash in my brand-new tire, and the stoopid can of Fix-a-Flat and air pump Dodge provides would not have helped. I guess I could have called AAA instead, but good grief no car should ever leave the dealer's lot without a spare tire of some sort.
      Not including a spare tire, which is increasingly common is inexpensive cars, does reduce weight somewhat. However, like with most "deletes", the real reason is cost. Making it a cost-added option means they can actually sell the spare tire at a profit instead of it just reducing the profit margin of the car. However, I do agree with you, and with all the safety regulations imposed on automakers, I can't believe spare tires were never mandated.

      Yeah but honestly what old lady is going to hop out of her dart, grab some wrenches and the spare tire on the side of a highway? NONE! AAA is cheaper than doing it yourself, and a lot safer might I add.

      For those who do have a spare tire, make sure you have reflective or flashing triangles and set them up! Will save your life... Flats always happen in the most inconvenient places...

      Is this a free service from Dodge to determine how rare your Dart is?

      Does anyone know the contact info?

      I would like to find out about this as well.. Looking for some picture of another Dart like mine.. I can only find one? At least when searching for 'dodge dart blue streak pearl coat'. They all seem to be Rallyes, Rallye blacktops, or GTs with the 17" rims. Mine is a GT with that color with the 18" hyper black rims, uconnect, and basically most of what you could get on it in 2014 minus the cargo net and a few other random things but as far as 'factory options', I think I have it all. (usually things like the cargo net, etc are dealer options). I also have the spare tire kit that it came with.

      I went ahead and put in a request to find out. Hopefully I should hear something soon. It's interesting the link @alpinegreenneon referenced. Per that article, the 2.4L was the absolute most popular engine by leagues in the Dart.. Yet.. The least loved (as far as performance parts).
