Hey /o/ i just bought a 2015 dodge dart 1.4l. How did I do? My friend said that i could have spent my money a bit wiser but i wanted a new car anyway. It's nice to be honest. I dont know much about cars but dodge is a reliable brand so ive been told.

Why? Have fun with your fiat

Op here again. The dealer told me that the automatic transmission would be more reliable than the manual so i got the auto
>>
>1.4L
I was actually depressed about having the 2.0L engine and then I found out there was an even smaller version and now I don't feel so bad.
>tfw you wanted a Dodge Ram
>tfw you can only afford a Dodge Dart

That's okay because the engine is going to explode just outside of the warranty coverage.

wat
>>
>>14193400
I am the other Dart guy do the engines really fucking do that?
>>
I like the way the Dart looks but not in white. Yes you could have spent your money wiser.

You're second post was obvious bait, you can't be stupid enough to believe an auto trans is more reliable than a standard one

kek

Okay now I feel like a pleb because I seriously bought a 2014 model with a 2.0. Is there something wrong with my car?
>>
Well if you like it that's all that matters, OP.

I honestly hate it, it's ugly. The interior is ugly, your engine would probably blow up after 40k miles and your power steering would get fucked soon.

You might luck out and get 2 or 3 years out of the car before it turns into a money pit. I wouldn't consider buying one used, either.

Not like I could expect anyone here to do their own research before buying anything.

1.4-fag here
>implying i have any of those problems

I change the oil more often and use Rotella T6
I've also lightened the car and don't bog the engine like a lot of people do. Don't be afraid to rev the shit out of it, it loves that.
It's really easy to replace the turbo. The engine itself is also relatively easy to work on, but the multair assembly needs a special tool (of course).

Also, you can pull a fuse to disable Multair. The damn thing actually drives better, but you can watch the fuel needle drop.

>>14193661
>electronic failures on italian cars
The Dart uses a completely different ECU than the MiTo and Giulietta. Doesn't mean it won't fail, mind you.

>>14193687
It is VVT. It gives greater control over the valvetrain than a mechanical setup and lightens the engine.

>Fiat forums

I checked Dart 1.4 turbo engine problems and the only ones to come about were "surging issues" when it gets about midrange in the revs, if OP got the DDCT trans, and gets the recall performed on the PCV, he shouldn't have any other issues
>>
Terrible choice. You could get a $3,500 Miata and save all that money while getting a better car. I personally have a masochism fetish, I love constantly having to take it in to the shop, especially since my city has a ton of potholes that ruin my suspension. It's great.
>>
Would be a great car if Fiat made them 500 lbs lighter.

I would have got a chebby sonic
>>
>>14194045
OR wait for a high powered model.
If anything just drop shekels on an Abarth. Just make sure you have enough leftover whenever you need to Fix It Again Tony.
>>
>>14194075
But the Sonic is a class smaller, the Cruze competes with the Dart, Focus, Civic Corolla and 3.
>>
>>14194174
the 1.4's a good value if you wanna wrench on shit. You can boost them over 200 HP with bolt-ons and a tune.

frankly, if you buy a mopar of any year, you should be willing to wrench on it, either to fix it or make it better.
