2015 Dodge Dart Rallye 2.4 litre petrol from North America
An overall decent, but average domestic auto
We purchased the car new, and thus far the car indeed performs like a V6, and as such, the fuel economy has been very disappointing. The sticker estimates 23 MPG city, and we have been hovering at 17 MPG.
Another issue is that the steering already seems to be out of alignment, and brakes just started to make a noise.
Also, at start-up, the engine revs up very high, as if it were an older car with high mileage, and going up hills, there is a "valve tap". The car is solidly built, and is relatively comfortable, but the seats feel cheap, and like they will not hold up over time.
Overall, the car is nicely equipped, and has the factory nav, etc.
As in most domestic cars, I don't expect this to hold to the standards of a comparable import. But that being said, for the price and amenities that the car is equipped with, you really can't go wrong.
If you're looking for a "5-year car", this one will do the job, and if equipped like ours, should hold a decent book value over time.
Dealer service is very marginal - not impressed at all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
