problem #1

Feb 092019


  • 40,000 miles
I have had so many issues with this car, my life has been put in danger on countless occasions. The 2013 Dodge Dart should not be on the road, it is a danger to others and to its drivers. I bought my car in 2013 and from day one I always felt that there was something wrong with the way it shifted. It is now 2019 and for the past four years the car has been in and out of the shop for transmission issues even after the car was taken in for the transmission control module recall. The car has revved up to 80 mph on its own while I was at a complete stop, if I had taken my foot off the brake I would have driven in to the intersection. The cars rpms have gone up to 7,000 while I was at 50 mph, the car has problems shifting back down while coming to a slower speed on the freeway, the car has stalled out in cold temperatures and shut off completely, the car has lost all boost while stepping on the gas driving on city streets, the car is 6 years old 67,000 miles and needs the entire transmission replaced one week after my 6 year warranty ended. This car is defective and unpredictable, not only has this car been a financial burden but it has put mine and my child's life in danger and the dealer can not fix the reoccurring problems.
