      Most stock auto trammies these days are not designed to accept any mods. Also, the manual mode - believe it or not - was never engineered to be a fun mode like a true clutch tranny. It was only really meant for situations where one would prefer to leave it in a certain gear while maybe towing or very hilly terrain. The marketed use of having "fun" with the auto stick is a blatant lie on any of the current automatics that are not proven high tech units like a Porsche dual clutch that actually works. There aren't many. I wouldn't be surprised if even they don't handle the kind of "fun" that's implicated in advertising.
      I wonder if @cereal killer could weigh in on this?

      I'd love to see a mid sized performance oriented Dodge. I'd have one in my driveway if it existed.

      Something that you and a lot of others are not understanding. The Dart and 200 are not selling! They are costing FCA money. The smart BUSINESS thing to do is drop them as they are doing. Production of the 300, Charger and Challenger are moving to Mexico. If all of you that are complaining about broken promises etc had been paying attention. FCA has been looking for a partner for 2 years to help with the Dart and 200! We are a very small group of owners and not enough people bought the cars. Look at Scion they weren't selling enough of 3 or 4 models and Toyota killed the whole brand.

      Its about business, dollars and cents, Darts and 300 sales are not enough to justify keeping them in production.

      How many Camrys are selling? How many Accords are selling? How many Jettas are selling? How many Civics are selling. The market is there. FCA just needs to put out a product that can compete. A heavy, bloated, under powered compact, and a heavy, bloated under powered midsize don't cut it in today's market.

      THAT is why they weren't selling.

      What does your comment have to do with what I posted? I wasn't commenting on why they weren't selling, I was commenting on what FCA is doing because they are not selling!

      Think that you are correct in why FCA is quitting on small cars. When we purchased our Dart a couple months ago we liked the Fiat 500x and Jeep Renegade however, after rebates and discounts they would be approximately $5000 more for the same equipment level. So of course that is what they want to sell. All small car sales are down. I do think that it is short sighted to abandon the market unless FCA is really on mission to sell/merge the company. The Hyundai Elantra did not sell well at first and now they are number 3 in small cars sales. Just my thoughts.

      Sedan sales are down in general, in favor of small SUVs. Jeep holds the advantage for that right now, being the SUV brand. That said, I wouldn't mind seeing a sporty hatch from Dodge.

      Really old student-concept drawing that I cleaned up in photoshop (original art not by me). It's called the Dodge Decept. This was done when SRT was young, Caliber was the SRT/4, and the magnum was still around.

      Sucks seeing this since I just bought a 2016 Dart Turbo. But I really hope there continues to be support and modding for our vehicles. I love mine so far.

      I'm slowly trying to turn my 2014 GT into an SRT. So far the mods I've added include:
      - Mopar Front Lip Spoiler
      - Mopar Rear Diffuser
      - Mopar Side Sills
      - MPX PVO Carbon Fiber Spoiler
      - Xenon HID Headlights/Foglights
      - Niche Targa 18.0x8.0 Rims
      - HAWK Sector 27 Drilled+Slotted Rotors (front+rear)
      - Mopar Sport Performance Hood
      - Mopar Cold Air Intake
      - Mopar Ram Air Inductor

      It's a real shame an SRT4 Dart wasn't actually produced, and we have to DIY; oh well I take pride in mine even if it isn't a true SRT4

      Your GT didn't come with the GT lip kit from the factory?

      Mine didn't come with the lip kit either. Probably the next thing I add. Another dealer had a white Dart with the lip kit, but it had an orange Rhombus stripe and I debated on getting that one. Then taking the stripes off.
