2013 Dodge Dart SE 2.0 from North America
Gas mileage is terrible. Routinely get 19 MPG or less on a 4 cylinder 2.0 liter engine.
Transmission shifting is rough, the handling is awful, and the power is non-existent.
The interior is neither great nor terrible. The gauges are a bit difficult to read at times, given the styling and color arrangement.
I would personally gladly take a Neon, PT Cruiser or K-Car over this car any day of the week. Dodge should be ashamed of this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Is this car a rental? As I doubt you would have bought it if it is as bad as you say, since much of this would have been apparent in the test drive.
Also, it seems the other reviewers have had the opposite experience to yours.

I own the SE 2.0L version, and it has been horrendous from start to finish. It's been in the shop for over 23 days due to a blown engine at just 5,002 miles -- a cylinder head failure that the dealer tells me is "common in the Northeast."
In 2014, NO car should lose an engine at 5,002 miles.
The transmission is rough and requires constant adjustments, the electronics are complete junk requiring constant resets and dealer updates, the Kumho tires are garbage, and interior appointments like the sun visors are made of flimsy plastic that breaks easily.
This car has cured me of ever owning another Chrysler product -- it's my fifth Chrysler car and they've been going downhill for years now. Chrysler should be ashamed of themselves for producing this rolling pile of prettily-styled garbage.
