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.
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
No, none of the neckbeards that posted even have a license let alone a 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.
apparently multiairs are horrid engines
Thank fuck everyone is sticking with cams rather than this useless hydraulic shit
>replacing cams with electronic-hydraulic actuators
>not just using VVT
>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.
>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.
It is VVT. It gives greater control over the valvetrain than a mechanical setup and lightens the engine.
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.
Fuck off zack i rented the dart and that faggot scraped every uptown road. Have fun kiddo :^)
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.
