Drivers Complain of Dodge Dart Problems

February 06, 2013
By: Robert Silverman

Unfortunately, when a new model rolls off the assembly line, it is sometimes laced with bugs and glitches. Several distressed Dodge Dart drivers have contacted us on the 1-800-LEMON-LAW hotline to discuss problems they are having with their cars and the message boards are lighting up with a variety of Dodge Dart problems, dealing with everything from engine issues to faulty fuel gauges, brake failure to transmission trouble.

One of the most interesting claims we have involves a Dodge Dart that was in for three check engine lights, stalling and an oil leak within the first three months of ownership.  Map sensors were replaced and software was updated.  Plus, the driver has been alerted that Dodge already issued technical service bulletins on how to address these issues, and is conducting an internal manufacturer investigation.  Surely this is not what you want to hear when you are purchasing a new car.

If your are experiencing Dodge Dart problems , be it with the transmission, engine, brakes, fuel tank or electrical systems, it is imperative that you get your car back to a Chrysler authorized dealership as soon as possible.  Make sure you are detailed as possible when describing your problem.  If you happen to find other drivers experiencing the same Dodge Dart problems on message boards, print their information out and bring it with you to your service visit.  Upon picking up your car, make sure you also obtain a repair invoice which illustrates mileage in, mileage out, date in, date out, what you complained about and what was done to fix the problem.   Keep these repair invoices in a safe place and if these repair attempts become repetitive or you are in the shop for an extended period of time, it’s time to look in your Lemon Law rights.

    I have a dodge dart 2013 that is having problems. I ran into a brake recall, check engine light that they could not diagnose, reprogramming of the pcm, turbo not working a large % of the time, cruise control decides when it will and will not work, and now I am stuck with my car in the shop and they can not diagnose what the issue is cause they can’t reinact the problem. I am stuck with a rental piece of crap that smells like a ashtray when my son is highly allergic to tobacco. My rental died on the main street last night..I am furious. I bought a new car to have no problems. I feel like I’m being punished for buying this car. What can I do?

            Located in South Carolina
            My husband and I bought a 2013 Dodge Dart Limited in June. We have had it less than 4 months and already it is at the dealership service center for a bad transmission control module. This would not bother me except we have been informed it will take over a month for them to receive the part as its on national back order AND we have already been without our vehicle for 2 weeks. The vehicle is not in drivable condition at this time and we do not believe it is reasonable to be without our brand new vehicle for more than a month. We have notified Dodge via their customer care line that if the vehicle is not repaired within the next two weeks we will seek to file it as a lemon.

              I bought my 2013 Dodge Dart SXT about 1 month ago with in two days the clutch started to make a knocking noise. Then a week or so later the touch screen/nav would not turn on and the window wouldnt roll down. I took it into the dealer and they said the clutch bearing had went out. When i ask about the touch screen/nav they said Chrysler knows about the issue but cant fix it and i would have to wait till they figured it out. They told me i could drive my car with the clutch bearing messed up in it so i did for about a week or so. It took them 2 1/2 days to fix the clutch. The next day i got gas in it and the gas hand didnt move. Ive looked ing the lemon law and it says it has to be the same problem more than two times but what if the company cant fix the problem can I argue that? .

                      We bought a 2013 Dodge Dart in June 2013. It has been back to the dealer on recall for reprogramming the fuel injection system. Now it’s back at the dealer to replace the transmission control module. It’s on order. The dealer did provide me with a Hertz rental.. It has between 9K and 10K miles.

                        I purchased a 2013 Dodge Dart Limited with turbo. I have had problems with it making noise when taking off no to mention a hesitation. I have mentioned it 2 times already just to be told its nothing. When they put it on the computer it doesn’t code so nothing is wrong. Although it continues to happen. Now I am having problems with it not starting. When it decides to start the check engine light is on. And now it will not start again.

                            I have a 2013 dart with about 10k miles on it. We took the car in to get updates on the computer system because it was having problems freezing and buttons not working. (First time taking it in- other then oil changes) They hooked up my car and there system froze they tried to restart it which completely fried my computer system in my car. Now my car won’t even start. They contacted dodge to get a new part and its back ordered until mid January they told us there is nothing they can do. They gave me a courtesy car that I have had for five days already (it’s to small and doesn’t even fit my family) can they really not have a part and leave me car less for 2 1/2 months??? While paying my car pmt that I’m not even driving???

                                I have a 2013 dodge dart ralley with 13k miles on it. I took it in the first time because when i plugged in my cell phone charger it broke off and blew the fuse. The next time I took it in for the oil change and the tire rotation I had to take it back as they did not properly fill my tires with air so I thought, turns out it needs a new fuse and tire sensor. Then I just took it in for the recall and an oil change and the Airbag system light was coming on and off. Now it is needing a new transmission module. They told me that the airbag light was a sensor and that it was not grounded so they have fixed it but is the car really safe? My car has only been in the shop for 4 days but all they can tell me is the part MIGHT be in next Tuesday and at that point it is a week. Would this be a lemon can you help me please I don’t know what to do.

                                          I have a close relative whose Dart SXT was purchased in August 2013 for $36,000. and by Dec 2013 had it back to the dealer 14 times. All of your comments have happened and more.
                                          We have no Lemon laws. Dodge was contacted as the service was less than adequate and another dealer was contacted as it finally had reached a breaking point. We found out both dealers talked to each other and just considered him a psycho cause he became frustrated and went to dealer 2 on the advice of Dodge. Can you believe that?
                                          Brain box has been replaced this month. Now, just waiting ….. What to do?

                                              hi, i bought my 2013 dodge dart sxt a few months ago and on january 1st i totaled it. i was pulling off of a dirt road onto a main road when then a truck basically ran over my front end, then totaling my car. they were going roughly 55-65 mph and i was about 5 mph. now NONE of my airbags deployed. my car is totaled and not one of my airbags deployed. the damage is all in the front and im positive my right side airbag sensor was hit. i believe it should have gone off, and so does the auto repair company my car is now sitting at. i went to my dealership and asked my salesman do i get any compensation for a faulty vehicle, and he said “no not unless you were hurt” i think its ridiculous that they sold me a faulty vehicle and wont at least refund me for my troubles. i went to the services section in the dealership and brought up the situation to them and they seemed shocked that it didnt go off from what i described to them. what can/should i do?

                                                  I bought my new Dart in October 2013 and it has given me problems starting the first month-
                                                  November-tire blew and dealership still won’t tell me whether they are reimbursing me for the tire.
                                                  The electrical has been spotty, gas gague not always working, interior lights dim on their own, and lights don’t always turn off.
                                                  I broke down on my way to work because the engine overheated and I had to be towed to dealership. They replaced a faulty thermostat and did a coolant flush. Now the car leaks red fluid and they said it’s a deteriorated hose which they can’t replace for a week.
                                                  I told them I have a one-year old and need to drive to Boston to take him to his doctor, they said you should be okay. They never offered a rental and expected me to take my son on a 600 mile trip in the middle of winter with a faulty part. They also kept saying, “this has nothing to do with the cooling system.” In NY I have to have the same problem fixed 4 times before I can do anything. I bought this new car after my son was born so I could have a 4-door reliable new car. It seems I am in the shop every month, missing work because the car is falling apart. When I asked them why the hose would deteriate on a new car they blamed it on New York winters. Do I have options? I am afraid to drive it long distances and it’s the most unreliable car I have ever owned. I feel like the dealership is lying to me.

                                                    Call the dealership right away and tell them the problems you’ve been having. They will take a look at it and analyze the problem. Make sure you get copies of any problems/repairs (which should be covered under factory warranty). You might have a faulty thermostat like I did. You can also check out the lemon law which is different depending on the state you live in. Good luck! I know it’s horrible to have these problems with a brand new car. Let me know what they say is the problem.

                                                          bought my 2013 Dart ralleye in November 2012. The front calipers and brakes were replaced under a “service bulletin” they rattled like crazy the dealer freaked when I called it a recall. The traction control light was coming on then the engine light with a misfire in the engine and power loss. Took it to the dealer it was an ignition coil and bad spark plug (caused by the bad coil). Today 3-19 -2014 it is at the dealer again because it felt as if the parking brake was on while i was driving. I called the dealer and one of the brake rotors is stuck and of course they do not have the part. Oh by the way no one but NAPA auto has parts for these cars (oil filters air filters ,brake parts) not even the dealer. I think I have purchased an exotic car (can you say Fiat) with a Yugo pedigree.

They called Chrysler who said nobody else is having this problem. Thanks to your post I caught them in a lie. The dealership said they can do nothing to help me. I guess we will have to look further into the lemon law. You sound like you have a claim since it’s been in the shop so many times. In NY I have to wait two more times for it to fail before I can start the paperwork for the lemon law.

                                                                I bought a 2013 Dodge Dart in December 2 weeks ago my control panel went out and all of the buttons under the screen. Therefore I couldn’t control my heat or defrost. I called the dealership and they told me it would be a week before they could get it. So I had to ride around with my windows down in the cold weather because the heat was on blast and it was making my kids and I sick. So when I finally took it in on a Friday they found the problem they said it was a sensor problem. Last Thursday not even a week later it went out again. The dealer said they can’t get it in till this Friday. I’m frustrated because it’s warm outside and my heat is on full blast it’s giving me headaches and it’s causing my son’s asthma to act up. Please tell me what I can do

It’s just a fine powder at this point, but won’t clean off. My tire pressure sensor has gone haywire, my nav fades to black and restarts randomly, my car just doesn’t turn on sometimes and I have to try 15+ times to get it to turn over, my steering wheel squeaks, my passenger side fog light keeps blowing out, but my car is over the 18,000 mile mark for the Maryland lemon law. Bummer. Is anyone else having these problems? Mainly the rust?

                                                                      the piece went through engine destroying valves.

                                                                      I will soon rely on my 21 year old dam as a daily and still be stuck paying for a pos that’s in the dealership a week every month or more.

                                                                      is it possible that lemon law can help if I Had the car for over a year in pa??

We have always had problems with the cruise control not turning on or staying on. We have been to the dealership several times and keep getting the “can’t replicate the problem, can’t fix it” speech. We are also having problems downshifting and it is forcing us to take turns at higher speeds then we like. I called the dealership today and was told they sold dozens and none have had these issues. I am supposed to go in on monday for an oil change, and I was hoping you could help me tell them what they are supposed to be doing. This is getting annoying and very unsafe.

My radio will cut out and the battery light and check engine light comes on all while blowing hot air at me and already being 80 degrees out not fun!!!! First time i took it in they couldnt get the car to act like that and told me to come in when it was happening, so a week later i took it back while it was doing it and they kept it for a week saying the Body control module needed to be replaced. Well got it back friday and it was ok but then the next day started doing the exact same thing again!!! Has anyone else had this issue? Service agent said this was new and had never seen it happen before!! Now gotta go back for the 3rd time 🙁

Since then, I have had it back for service for everything from recalled springs to a stereo replacement to cruise control not working. I’ve had computer issues, sensor issues, and more.

                                                                                          Recently, I took my family on a road trip. Before we left, I had it back in the shop as the cruise contol stopped working again. This time, the engine light stayed on because I kept the car running outside the shop doors. They were able to diagnose it as a turbo mod issue, so… reset the sensor. After explaining that I would be going on a road trip, they responded with “in this?” I wish I were kidding. I made it half way to our destination and received an engine light, no turbo, no cruise. I was told to continue to my destination and get it to a dealership there for maintenance. After three days, guess what they did? Red t the same sensor that my home dealership did. Guess what happened on our way home? Yep, the same thing that happened on our way there. So I called the dealership to give them a heads up that I was coming back and that this car was going to be fixed, not reset this time. I blew my lid. After three days in the shop, it was determined that the turbo had a design flaw that was known by Dodge but has not caused a recall yet. I am now waiting 7-10 days for the part to possibly show up.

                                                                                          If you have experienced the same issues, look at a video on YouTube of a gentleman calling out a faulty turbo, finding excess oil buildup in his intake. It may help you going into the dealership which, with this car, is bound to happen.

                                                                                          Does anyone know if there is a lemon law in Canada?

I called back after 2 wks, they said turbo issue dodge is still working on. that was now about 2 months ago… its almost 2yrs old now with 20k miles, too late to be declared a lemon?

My first problem came with my touch screen, it stopped working and would only allow me to touch it once before it would just stop. I took it in to the dealer and they told me they were unable to duplicate the problem. They did some flash updates and said it should be fine, but the problem was still there. I went back in and told them about it and they said they would have to replace it. It has been a few months and now it will randomly shut off on its own. I also went in because my tachometer gets stuck a lot and doesn’t show the correct RPM’s, when I took it to the dealer they could not duplicate the problem. Now I had to take it in this morning because I started smelling something that I knew wasn’t right and then there was “smoke” coming from my vents. They told me that there was something wrong with my coolant system and they would really have to “dig” in to know for sure. Now I’m in a rental car and the dealer should know more about what has needs to be done by monday. My car barely has around 11,500 miles on it. Should it really be having these issues? Could this be considered a lemon?

It already has 12000 miles on it and has been in the shop more than a handful of times. One is a burning smell that they can detect. And second its been in for gas related issues. The gas gauge keeps moving down as I drive and im losing gas mileage. I’ve taken it in twice and all they did is update the computer. The first time it happened in May 2014. Then again in July. Im very frustrated.

First my radio and dash cluster goes out from time to time. The interior dome light fixture keeps falling out and almost hits me in the head. I’ve had the transmission hot message come on and it smells like burnt clutch. The gas nozzle area where you put gas into keeps coming out of place. Do I have a lemon?

Fixed to our satisfaction (so far). But it is now in for a cruise control that turns itself off at will for the 4th time. I don’t honestly think the dealership knows what to do. This time I told them to get us a rental paid for by the dealer and keep it until they figure it out. Is this a lemon law eligible issue?

It has been in the shop for hesitation (without a check engine light) multiple times, I have had to have my window regulator replaced, updates due to recalls, updates due to transmission (shifting issues), and now the final straw……July 3rd I took it in to the dealer because it was doing the hesitation thing as always but this time the check engine light came on. The car was shaking and was very loud. The dealer called me on July 8th and said that I needed my engine replaced that the 3rd cylinder was seized up. They said they needed to replace my engine. Mind you it it only has 22,000 on this car. Come to find out they were not putting an entire engine in they were just replacing the block and some other parts. They take it for a test drive and call me to tell me that there was a problem and they have to replace the entire engine……… is August 15th and I still do not have my car back (not that I want it back) and Chrysler Corp will not give me what I want…..I just want my money back and I do not want a Chrysler product. By the way the Dodge Dart has a Fiat engine in it incase you didn’t know…..

When I took it in for an oil change, it wouldn’t start again. It ended up being the transmission sensor, which took almost a month to get. They fixed it. It ran okay until June when I noticed the transmission was shifting hard and the computer didn’t shut off when I turned off the vehicle, then the check transmission light came on and the car wouldn’t start again. Once again it was the transmission sensor and it took about a week to be repaired. I had to go to a different dealer because of the proximity to my home. Well, I thought it was going to be okay, but on this past Friday, on the way home from work the check transmission light came on and I knew what was next. Luckily I was able to start the car the next morning and drove it to the dealer where I purchased it. It didn’t start again. They gave me rental so I could get home. What are my options at this time? I truly do not trust this car and feel it isn’t safe for me to drive. I will contact Dodge on Tuesday, but I want to know what the next process is and how I get this resolved. Thank you,

Multiple issues with transmission (3times) fuel pump issues, navigation issues, computer software issues, all my airbags were faulty and the list goes on. Yesterday 9.6.14 my “service transmission” message came on. I am sick of this car, sick of fixing it and at this point want to find out how to get a new car. Any ideas?! Please help me.

Get this when I drive through a round about my traction light comes on and then the check engine light come on and then car loses power I have to pull over restart the car and that only cures the traction control light the check engine light still stays on for a day or so . But again going through a round about same thing happens . Took it to dealer and they kept it for a few day and couldn’t figure it out so they needed to wait until dodge sent them a special tool what is that ? Anyway car still isn’t fixed and it’s suppose to go back next day . Seriously a new car that can’t be fixed boy did I make a mistake buying a dodge . Never again .

At about 3,000 miles I noticed it started to jerk more when shifting. It hesitates on take off, the touch screen Blacks out sometimes for seconds or hours. I loose control of everything. I’ve been in contact with Chrysler directly and two different dealerships. The jerking is bad enough it jerks your head. Chrysler and dealerships tell me that’s just the way the car is. There is nothing they can do. Its at 11,000 miles. I’ve taken it 3 times for same transmission issue and get ignored. Last call with Chrysler they told me these cars have memory driving around 20,000 miles and that might be my problem… Makes a lot of sense. I love being ignored. We tried to trade it in.. The dodge dealer ran our credit through 18 different places. Thank god it’s a lease but I. want it gone. No one will listen.

It’s been still running past the half way point but they said they cannot duplicate the issue so I’ve given up on that .. every once in a while I will smell a burning smell like wires or rubber. I’ve noticed it riding very very rough lately had an alignment and a rotation at 20,000 dont know if thats average we dont have alot of pot holes here in FL so i’m not sure. I noticed its very jolty and rough when I shift now too. Also have had it were I turn on the AC or defroster its a full minute or two before it even starts to blow any type of air out?? The biggest problem I have not is that the clutch has been starting to stick .. not all the time but when it does its in all 6 gears.. I actually have to pull over and stop turn the car off and let it sit then start it again for it to go back to normal the other day it got stuck to the floor I had to upll it up with my foot i was on an incline in an intersection and almost got hit 3 times.. I called 4 dealers they say they’ve not heard about that issue, however I find it on all the posts mainly the 1.4 turbo i have the 2.0 .. it is manual though, none of the dealers can get it looked at in a timely manner 3 of them said it will be a week just to look at it never mind drive it and duplicate the issue since it usually happens in traffic after I’ve been driving it for a while when its humid or hot or raining. It has a serious hesitation out of a complete stop to almost to the point I have to floor it. I called chrysler they basically said i’m SOL due to the repair nature it will take a day or so to diagnose I work full time to pay for this peice of crap i bought so now i either pay out of pocket for at least a minimum of a week or risk driving it till i can leave it for a few days when I do not have to work, chrysler basically said they’ve not heard of it and they can’t do anything.. 🙁 I’m kinda stuck dunno what to do my first new car and this happens.

The first one froze up and then all the gauges stopped working. I called the dealership and they replaced it with a new one. The second one has issues. It feels like the car is skipping. Not all the time but from time to time but enough to notice. It rattles when it gets cranked up in the morning and the RPMs rev up. I have had people tell me how bad it sounds for a new car. The tire pressure gauge is always off. The rear defroster half way works. We have taken it in to the dealership and they say the problem cannot be duplicated. This will be the third time. They have yet to give me paperwork for the second trip in. they damaged my car the first time and they had to fix the damage. That took almost a month. Now it feels like them nor Chrysler want to deal with us. Today when I was driving the screen went black, then came back up with the Dodge logo and said see dealer for service. I was driving and by the time I got my camera up it went back to normal. What can I do?

If you have the turbo it could be like mine had a hose and sensor replace on turbo for the rpm’s going to 6000 before shifting into second gear. My radio has been replaced, I had part of my engine rebuilt due to cylinder 2 &3 seized, they took it for the test drive before giving it back to me and cylinder 4 &1 seized… car has been in the shop over 10 times and I haven’t had my car almost 90 days. I to go the same answers a lot that they couldn’t recreate the issue, I offered for them to drive with me so I could show them but they wouldn’t. I think Chrysler Corp knows there is a problem with all of them and they tell the dealership to say that. My car is still not fixed, I have been told my engine sounds like a diesel engine or a lawn mower. Even though they are risking my life they do not care. So I am taking the necessary steps, so please talk to a lawyer or file it your self.

I’m having a lot of problems with the car, the transmission is overheating a lot of smoke came up from under the hood, and a message appears saying that the transmission is overheating. I took the car to the dealer and they decided to change the transmission last week same thing happen and they replace the transmission again. The car has less that 20k miles and two new transmissions.

Car was jerking, and smelled of.burnt clutch. Car was towed to dealership, and it was the clutch. They replaced the dual clutch competently, and updated the clutch replaced two transmission modules.They had my car for 12 days, I got it back yesterday, and car is running rough, and still jerking. Check engine light also keeps coming on, and my car say service engine, and also service airbag keeps. Coming on. What should I do? I bought a new car for it to be reliable, and not a piece of junk.

So i take it back to the shop they have to see if my extended warranty covers that even though my car still had dealer plates. needless to say it took over a month for them to finally fix that little problem. about a month goes by my car then starts hesitating, all my lights on the dash coming on and oil pressure was staying way above hott and needing a jump every time to start it. so i take it in and they have to replace all the wiring for the battery and connectors basically anything to do w/the battery that had to replace. Last week i brought my car in about the hesitating at hwy speed. they replaced the turbo and gaskets which took forever waiting on parts. this week i began smelling fumes in my car. then yesterday i was on the highway and it began hesitating and the traction control and check engine light came on again, and i couldn’t press on the gas. Today they call me and say they have now replaced the coils and the lights went off. is this a bit much maintenance for a car that just went over 30,000 miles and I have only had for 6 months. b

The sec time it happened at 9500 miles and took six times to restart it to get the idle to come back to 1000 rpm and the gas pedal to work .DEALER couldn’t find anything wrong At1400 miles this has happen again and took 4 time to restart so i could use the gas pedal. Have this on my phone this time and going back to the dealer . will let you know what happens.

Its a 1.4l turbo, auto. When I got the car, the brakes were squeaking pretty bad and the tire pressure light was on. The dealer I purchased the car from replaced the front pads on the car. When I got the car back, they still squealed. After 3 trips back to a couple different dealers, they FINALLY decided to replace the rotors. Now after many trips to dealers for brake issues, I was fed up with the car, after 2 weeks of owning it! After the brake issue got fixed, my gas door went out of alignment. That got fixed. Now comes the fun part… The front of my motor has been making a clunking noise. First time I had it into the shop the couldn’t get it to make the noise. The second time, the said it was a defective cat. Noise was still present, so the third time they replaced the turbo. Received the car back, clunking still present. They can’t figure out what’s wrong with it! I was told they’ll contact their information line and see if they can get to the root of it. My main problem, other then the constant repeats of having to drop this car off with 9k miles on it, is I have a year and half left of warranty. After warranty expires, will I have to put out thousands to fix the upcoming problems? I need help please!!

I have a 2013 limited with turbo. Same issue just started for me at 22k miles. Dealership says it’s the battery, but it doesn’t stop when jumped, and it happens even right after turning the car off (nothing left on, Etc). Still waiting on a dodge corporate response as the dealer is refusing to work on it unless I pay out of pocket.

My first Dodge Dart SXT 2013 was a lemon and unfortunately paid in full, so after 5 months of being in a rental because the dealership “could not figure out what was wrong with the car” (freezing touch screen, navi completely black, heat on full blast all the time and won’t turn off, no temp regulation, usb outlet power going in/out, heat from under steering wheel) – finally starting the arbitration process and chrysler confirmed it a lemon and I got another dart (because I absolutely love the car, despite its awful problems) and low and behold the afternoon after I drove my second brand new dart off the dealership lot, the touch screen once again started to freeze and not work. Constantly shutting off and restarting with the dodge home screen – navigation gets stuck and freezes on address page- sometimes I drive round trip 45 miles and the touch screen is still frozen and I cannot get the navigation to work. So so so so disappointing 🙁 on January 21st, exactly one year that I have had the second Dodge Dart, the car suddenly died, and the battery light came on. Had it towed to the dealership once again, but this time with a new problem, besides the touch screen still not working – a week later I got my car back, chrysler says they can’t figure out why the car died because it starts fine and according to all their tests, everythings okay. THATS SCARY. Flash to present day and my car is back in the dealership, it’s been two weeks that I’ve been in another rental. And I just can’t believe this is happening to me again. I mean come on, what are the odds of me having a SECOND LEMON?!?! so frustrating how can a company not figure out what is wrong with the computer systems they built inside their cars!!! Now I am left to face LA traffic without my navi because the rental I’m in smells of feet and old cheese. Is there anyone that can help me?!?! I am so tired of these dart problems it’s been a year and a half that I’ve been living in and out of dealerships with these issues. Not what I expected of a brand new car, paid in full :((

The previous owner before me had the car for 11 months. There was no service or accident record on the CarFax. So in January my car wouldn’t get out of park. It was really cold so I assumed it was because the car was cold it had to run before it let me drive. After running for a while the shift control moves with no problem. But another time I got in even after letting the car run for a while it still would not shift out of park. I took it to the dealer I leased it from so they can repair it (still under warranty) and they didn’t know how to, so they sent it to the Dodge dealer about 25 mins away. I was without my car for two and a half weeks. Still making payments tho on a car I’m not driving. So mid January, I get the car back. Look at the service record. All they did was adjusted the shift control and “problem solved”. Here it is March and Im still having this problem. I haven’t seen any other forums with this problem which I find hard to believe.

I ended up having problems with the car with less than 300 miles on it. We took it to the dealer 5 times, in the same day because they said that they fixed the problem. All they did was reset the light and said it was fixed. But every time we would drive away with in a few miles from the dealership the light would come back on. So, by then we were not happy and told them that we did not want this car back until the problem was fixed. So, finally it turned out that we were MISSING 2 bolts from our crankshaft pulley. Since then in these last two years we have had problems with this care. We have had a recall for the program power train control, we have had a fan module assembly replaced, a passenger airbag assembly replaced, then passenger seat wire harness near the connector circuits replace, a motor blower replaced and today we just had an fuel tank pressure sensor replaced! And I am sure that is not just the last problem that is going to be replaced in the last year that we have a lease on this car.

Took it on the road for the first time in Feb of 2013, no problems. Smooth ride to and from Florida. My problems began last year when I noticed my touch screen kept resetting itself, but didn’t think anything of it thought it was rebooting itself like my cable or computer. Now I’m dealing with a jerking while driving issue. It got to the point to where I was afraid to drive the damn thing. Yesterday the check engine light came on, so my husband changed the air filter thinking that was the problem, no such luck. The light is still on and the car is still jerking. The car isn’t even 3 yrs old yet and I’m having these types of issues?!

I panicked but I was able to restart and it came back on. Went to the dealer and nothing was done about it. No tests, no nothing. Said if it happens again to come in. Well, it happened again when I intially started my car in the driveway and a completely blank screen. Restarted my car and it reset. Went back to the dealership and was told if it happens again let them know. No tests. It just seems like they don’t care about my safety. The climate control comes on all the time without me touching it. It’s just on! Even when the climate control is off, the heat coming from the floor is excrutiatingly hot. I can’t do this. No one is helping me. The dealership where I purchased the car told me they couldn’t test it because the wi-fi was being replaced. Well, that was over a month ago and they still have to stepped up to test it. When I mentioned it, I was told not to worry because my car has a 3 year warranty and if it happens … again… to bring the car in. What if it happens again and it results in my safety being jeopardized?? I don’t want to wait for it to happen again. It frightens me to drive this car knowing the dashboard might go out and I can’t see anything on the dash. Is there any help for me… I don’t know what to do. Please advise. Thank you.

Within the first week my instrument cluster started going crazy; first with the speedometer which returned to normal after shutting car off and restarting and the next day the Heating and cooling gauge. The UConnect system was inoperable in which dealer advised UConnect had to be contacted. That wasn’t the problem after trying the hard reset. Notified dealer of all problems, took it in to service center for diagnosis. Part had to be ordered and “short staffing” was the reason for not getting it in faster. The service guy assured me a one hour fix time and I’d be out…well I stayed from 830 am until 230 pm waiting. Offered a rental to get lunch and noticed miles down the road I was placed in a rental with no gas and sputtering to the pump. 230 pm my car was back and running Bluetooth connected great. The next day my car phone charger kept blowing a fuse, so I contacted service dept again, was told it would be a week or so before I could get it in in which I advised warranty would be out by then. No worries they say, preexisting issue that was looked over while repairing. While waiting on the date I noticed my tire was flat and sent it in to local shop to have it changed. The tire guy advised I had wires showing on all 4 tires, my oil needed changing, and wipers were bad!!!!! The next morning I go to crank my car and battery was dead, boosted off, get to my destination, and needed another boost off. It wouldn’t stay charged and I had battery and alternator checked. Both were fine. I called dealership and advised at which the warranty had expired n nothing they could do. I advised them that there is no way an inspection was done after assuring me oil, tires, and battery were checked and no way tires would wear down to the wires showing in a month. It was determined the tires also had 2 plugs in one and 1 in another after replacing them. They refused to reimburse for tires after viewing them and insist the battery problems are not directly related to ICP repair and no good will warranty will be warranted. The employees at Dodge and that dealership are a direct reflection of the vehicles they make and sell. I will know better next time to stick with Nissan and do my homework. Not sure if I have a case or not in MS but if it continues to be a hunk of junk I’m willing to try!

I have been in and out of the dealership in the last 6-8 months. I have had low rough and even a little erratic idle issues sometimes while the car is heating up after cold start up. I have had the same battery problem three times now. Dealership can’t figure out what’s wrong. Car dies and stalls and the battery light comes on. I have made two complaints to Chrysler in the last month. Took it to the dealership I bought it from a month ago. They kept it four days and still didn’t find anything wrong.

A month and a half ago went to leave the son’s house put key in it turned it all the light on dash came on. We had to wait 15 minutes before it would start. The engine light came on and stayed on. Drove home 10 minutes turned the car off. Went out about 30 minutes later stared just fine the engine light was not on. Didn’t think a lot about it. About 3 weeks later drove to the daughters house about 5 minutes away the same thing happen. Took it to the local dealership to be looked at said it was a wire listed it on the repair paper the name of the wire. Two days later drove it a hour away to go shopping did just fine till we srarted home and stop at a Menard’s for something went in about 15 minutes. When we got back in the car and turn it on it came up service transmission, so we shut it off and had to wait 10 minutes before it would start again. Will be calling the shop first thing Monday. The sad thing is I have a business trip to take in two weeks about 2 1\2 hr away from home and I’m so scared that it won’t be fixed right or not fixed at all. WHAT TO Do???????

At about 5k miles I had an issue where the car would just lose power put up the check engine light, traction control light, and the lightning bolt light simultaneously. I could then stop where I am at and put the car in park then restart it. It would do this from 2-6 times before the car temp gets to about midway mark. jist wanted to know if anyone else is having this issue and if I have a case.

The car has been back to the dealership almost 10 times. It’s stalled on the freeway at 65 mph, stalled in my driveway and when it came back on wouldn’t acknowledge drive gear. It’s had the uconnect shut off repeatedly and other alerts have come up. Recently the ABS locked up the brakes and on a few recent occasions the pedal has gotten hard. On top of that, the keyless go system doesn’t let me into the car requiring me to pull the fob out and manually unlock the car. I’ve had to contact the resolution team and they barely respond to me, usually with removing the car charger which they keep claiming is causing the problems. Nothing’s being done and I’m needing transportation. The car has failed to start 3 mornings in a row on the first try. Any help is helpful.

It had 21,000 miles on it. I noticed during the test drive it was sluggish. But I got it anyways. Then a few weeks later the engine light came on. So I took it to dodge and they said they did a software update but the CPU was throw in codes saying turbo/supercharger under boosting. And now I came on a road trip to Tennessee. I live in SC. My car is sputtering very bad. No power. It seems like to me spark plugs misfiring. Would this be considered a lemon?

Just recently, my steering wheel started to click when turning left and sometimes when turning right as well. The left turn clicks are very loud as to when I turn right its quite soft sounding. Brought my car in for her usual check up, explained what was happening and made an appointment. Brought me car in and they said they’re going to order some brackets and see if that resolves the issue because they can’t find where the clicking is coming from. They said if that doesn’t work, they’re going to order different parts. They are also ordering a brand new radio system because the voice command with Bluetooth stopped working a week after having the car. I have Gap insurance and I will pull the lemon law on them without a doubt if it applies.

They called it a howling clutch… It also had a bad sensor, but clutch was bad off lot. It took 3 months for them to look at it because it was so random. Just happened in first or in reverse.

I however bought my car pre-owned. My car has 62k miles on it. About 5 days ago, my car just would not start. I thought it was my battery so I got a jump. It was driving just fine. Then it stopped again. I eneded up going to get a diagnostic and they told me that it wasn’t just the battery, it was the alternator. I just got my car back yesterday only for them to tall me that my car alternator is fine but I’m having some type of electrical issues. When i drive, the car stops. I have to put it in park and restart it. It’s ridiculous. The dodge dealership told me i only have a manufacteuring warranty. also that would not even be able to look at my car for a week. I’m in the military and work almost everyday. They would not give me a rental either. I’m starting to think i got a lemo. I’ve had this car since January 22nd 2015.

They said it was the heater coil. WhenI picked the car up I asked them how the heater cil could have been cracked. The tech said the coil has a new design. He never answered my first question so I ask another question why did they change the design? Is there a problem they are having with the Dart.? He said I don’t know why they change the design and he doesn’t know of anyone else having this problem. He said he called to see if there are reports of this and he was told that this is he first one for a 2015 model.

It was a great car to begin with, then the problems started. I had it to the dealership about a week after i bought it because there are bad spots in the clear coat. Of course the dealership said they cant do anything about it. Last winter I took it back because there was a rattling under the floor board any time i hit a bump ( sounded like the car was going to fall apart). Of course, they couldn’t find the issue. Had to have the engine torque rod bolt replaced due to a recall. Within the past 3 months i have been back to the dealership 3 time for the same noise. ( It sounds like something metal is loose. It only does it when i am at a slow speed, or if i am coming to a stop or taking off. Once again, every time i have taken it to the dealership, they have no idea what the problem is. I’m done!!

They don’t know what’s wrong with it. Said that they believe that something else has triggered this to happen! Oh and my passenger side visor just broke off too! $100 to replace that.

Opened a case with Chrysler but they just keep trying to “fix” the problem by replacing touch screen, replacing engine, etc etc. in the mean time, car has shut off and died on me in the middle of traffic 4 times since January. Taken it to dealership every time and have copies of every single invoice. I live in California and am aware of the lemon law because my first Dart was a lemon. I just want to know why Chrysler won’t accept the fact this car is also a lemon and accept responsibility and DO SOMETHING. It is completely unacceptable and a safety issue to keep giving me back my car when it never really is fixed. Truth is Chrysler doesn’t know what the hell is wrong with their own cars or how to fix them. So disappointing because I loved the dart but ever since January, every time I get in my 2014 SXT I am anxiety ridden – will my car break down on me today? Will it break down on the freeway or on the local streets? Will my touch screen actually work today? Will my brakes work today? No one should have these thoughts about their brand new car. Come on Chrysler, accept responsibility. Terrible customer service and to think I’ve been fighting with them since the day I drove the car off the lot and the problems started. Please tell your loved ones and friends, do not purchase a Dodge Dart! Nothing but problems, and nothing gets resolved. Are they waiting for me to get killed in my car to finally do anything? This is not okay. Please do not buy Chrysler!!!!

Everything was fine untill recently it started to have problems. So etimes it drains the whole battery and will not start. The guages on the dashboard start to flicker on its own without even turning on the car. The car shakes and makes a wierd click noise when ever I turn on the high beams orturn up the drivers side window and shakes. I took it in like 3 months ago for the problem,they said everything was fine all they did was replace the battery with a new one. The problems stopped for a couple of days but then started again. Oh also it shakes when ever im driving on the highway when i accelerate. What can I do ?

This invoice should include mileage in, mileage out, your problems and what was done to address your problems. Once you have been in 3-4 times with the same issue, you need to look into your Lemon Law rights.

The entire elictrical system at completley random times appear to fry. all my gauges will flicker and die and the radio will freeze, go white with black lines through it and slowly fade away. a coupem seconds will pass and the whole system will reset with the dogde logo coming back on the screen. I can replicate the issue because for some reason everything seems to be connected to my ABS. I live in the PNW and we have cold snowy winters. Everytime the ABS engages, the whole electrical system will do everything i just explained. And it will do it over and over at every red light. Sometimes my tail lights wont even come back on as people have told me I have no lights. Bought the car new in Feb 2013 and this is the 2nd year in a row ive had the car in for this same problem. Ive already had a complaete gauge and cluster replacement, a new sensor control module (from when I was having the not starting issuer as well last year) as well as multiple updates. The yayhoo at the dealership told me just last Thursday December 10th to drive it and see if the updates fixed it. Now mind you this has been a repeated issue and whats worse is that I go to the same guy everytime to make sure that he is aware that this is still the same problem!!!!! What the heck. I want out of this POS car!!!

All 4 aluminum rims/wheels were replaced at 13,000 miles due to corrosion and again at 30,000 miles rims replaced a second time due to corrosion once again!!! This time replaced with different material of rims in hopes of avoiding corrosion that occurred with alum wheels. Luckily car still under warranty…but what happens in a year when it happens for the third time & car no longer under warranty??

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                In addition to rim trouble…currently my car is at dealership because “service transmission” message appeared & also noticed smell of burnt oil or rubber at times. Car was also acting up by not starting after several attempts, but finally started and immediately drove straight to dealership. check engine light was also on.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                At this point they are telling me a spacer needs to be replaced (assuming they mean oil sensor) which was the cause of burning oil smell. Dealership saying do not know why car not starting (but I have read other comments above which match my car scenario & realize something greater is going on). It’s unfortunate bc there are a lot of great things about this car which I love…but don’t feel comfortable keeping it at this point. My car will be out of warranty in 4,000 miles & I’m scared to death driving it after warranty ends. Not to mention the recall notice I got in the mall about a part on car, however, according to Dodge they’re not making the part yet which needs replaced & will contact me once they decide to start making it.

At 22000 miles my car just wouldn’t start when I tried to start it. No warning lights, no running funny. It was taken to the dealership I bought it at and they said it was a computer problem. Now at 25000 miles, my check engine light came on, starting running funny with a light tapping feeling in the gas pedal around 40mph and shifting erratically. I took it in when they diagnosed it with a computer software update. They also told me I have a brake recall but there is no solution. My radio was going in and out. It worked probably 90% of the time but they said they would fix it and because its under warranty still I said OK. Now my radio works 5% of the time and my phone won’t stay connected to the Bluetooth through the car. It is still making that weird tapping feeling and shifting erratically at times when it was supposed to be fixed. I feel like because I’m a woman they think I don’t know what I’m talking about and they are jerking me around until my warranty gets done in June so I have to bring it in after that and they actually get paid for their work. But I PAID for the warranty when I bought it. They won’t provide me with alternate transportation if they keep my car either. I’m just frustrated! Any thoughts as to what could be wrong with my car?

Last year I had a service transmission msg, had the car serviced and the transmission control module was replaced. Sept 2015 they came out with a recall for another part of the transmission needing to be replaced. I’m now going in because my service transmission comes on 80% of the time and have trouble starting the car. It won’t turn on at all, and then eventually turn over and start. It’s going in for service on the recall & for the fact that I’m having trouble starting it sometimes. do I have a fair case for lemon law?

Had the car for 4 months before starting to give me problems. One day on my way to work in pulled out my drive way, drove down the street was approaching a stop sign , started to slow down my car just died right in the middle of the street. The battery light,and oil light came on,took me a good 5mins to restart the car,had to put it in park wait a little then restart it. It also dies while driving when I make any turn. So on February 8 2016 I took my car to the dealership I purchased it from ,told them what was going on. They say nothing showed up on the diagnostics test but my oil was low. So I had to pay 60$ for the oil change .I got my car back on February 10th. On February 12th I was driving my car stopped at the light. Right when I was making my left turn my car die,my steering wheel locked so there was no way for me to control the car so i crashed into a sidewalk.So now my axel is broke. So I called Dodge and open a case…they came out and investigate my I’m waiting on a response for the main investigation team in Detroit but it’s been over 2 weeks. Now I just don’t know what to do.

I was previously told it was a lose clamp. tonight I smelled burning coolant and upon inspection found a fairly decent size coolant leak from what appears to be from the intercooler lines. I currently have about 19500 miles on the car, and don’t want to be stuck with a new car that will nickle and dime me or worse. As I no longer work for the dealership I’m concerned about what I can do with the time and mileage.

It is very similar to a problem Mitsubishi used to have with their T59 ground wire. (Mitsubishi produced most of dodges wiring harnesses at one point)

Got it restarted after a few tries, took it to the dealer, left it there for them to check it. I got a call a few hours later that after L3 tech and service manager investigated the issue, bad engine.. cylinders were scorched.. oil was very low.. they used a special camera to take pictures of the cylinders after pulling the plugs to check for a known issue as evidence for getting approval to replace the engine for a known potential issue.. Engine has now been replaced.

My car will be in the shop agaun for the 3rd timefor everything listed and I’ve only had it a few months. It’s dangerous to drive because it acts like it wants to go from drive to neutral, even reverse while I’m driving. Had the recall done not even a week ago and replaced a fuel switch, just to get half way down the road and have the same problems still happening. As we speak it’s sitting in a walmart parking lot because it wouldn’t start. Wasn’t the battery being dead. Says autoclutch disabled, service transmission, and engine light is up. I’m very very unhappy about the car, especially considering how much I paid for it and it literally just came out of the shop!

In November it lost power and wouldnt drive. I had it towed and my oil needed changed. Ok. So 1 week ago it did the same thing.. again they said oil. My mileage, months, and oil life % were ok. I traded it in for a 2016 Dart with extra features I have wanted for 2 yrs. ONE week of ownership and it does the exact same thing as my previous one. I had it towed. After getting off the truck it started. They cant find anything wrong with it. I have a rental so they can keep checking.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Do I get something totally different or hope it doesnt happen again! So frustrating when you work your butt off to get the exact car youve wanted for so long just for this to happen.

Now 13000 miles on it and I went to go to my Drs. And the car wouldn’t start so since I’m still under warranty Chrysler sent someone to jumpstart the battery wanted him to check the voltage etc. he says ” it’s my first day on the job I don’t have anything to check it with all I know is how to jumpstart the vehicle ????? ” duh??? That’s Chrysler s answer to being professional??? He couldn’t have been more than 19 yrs old!!

Now I call dealership told them the problem again a young girl 16-17 yrs old sends me to parts the tech couldn’t understand why she sent me to him he said car is under factory warranty you need to bring it in to service so again he reprimanded her I was sent back to her and said warranty is a process I have to go thru and she doesn’t know how long it will take so I said Ok but I need a car will they give me a free loaner as they have enterprise rental on site. She says ” Um- just a minute ….. Comes back on the phone and says ” You don’t have rental car coverage so Um No!!! No???!!!! My new car is malfunctioning thru no fault of my own and she says we don’t know how long it will take to fix the problem and I have to do without a car??? !!!!! ” my question is; under Factory Warranty I’m having issues and it may be on the recall list shouldn’t they give me a loaner while they have to repair their problem to fix it right??!!!!

It worked fine until summertime hit (I live in 120 degree weather) and the ambient temperature would suddenly say that it’s -20 degrees outside and the air conditioner wouldn’t turn on. When I’m driving it on the highway, the ambient temperature will be correct and then start to decline and then the A/C kicks off and throws hot, humid air at me. I’ve taken it into the Dodge dealership where I live like 7 times, and they’ve never been able to fix the problem. The dealership keeps getting frustrated with me because when they have it the computer says everything is working fine, but the problem keeps happening. We asked about the Lemon Law, but they said that since they haven’t been persistently changing the same part, we can’t consider it a lemon. Is that true? They have changed the PCM and TCM and I think they’ve charged the A/C too, but it will be fine for a couple days and then mess up on me. It’s summer, and it’s well over 100 degrees, and I need A/C, just rolling the windows down does not help me at all, it almost makes it worse. If I start taking it to another dealership, and they can’t find the problem, can we use it as a lemon law, or does it have to be the same dealership? This dealership is starting to give me serious attitude, today they wouldn’t even take my car and they told me to just turn my car on for 10 minutes without the A/C on before driving it, and everything should be (keyword should) fine, the ambient temperature should go to where it needs to be. That’s not my problem, it gives me good readings when I get into the car, it decreases when I’m driving after a while. I seem to be the only person here with this problem, does anyone else have anything similar? My heater works just fine in the winter, it’s just my A/C in the summertime.

I didn’t have any issues until January of this year right after the warranty expired. I had issues with my sticky clutch and the cruise control not workin . They said it was a clutch switch. Fixed it for 300 and it seemed ok until a couple days ago the issue started again and then today my car wouldn’t start and the only thing it would do is the gauges were acting possessed. After a jump I made it 45 min on the hwy home when the Dash and radio and lights just shut off. Not the engine just some of the electrical stuff. So I slowly end up getting to a place where I could stop because of how it was acting I didn’t feel safe. Got a jump from my aunt but no matter how long the battertime charges it won’t restart and it just acts possessed. The key fob won’t even work to unlock and lock it idk what to do

Last summer the clutch burned out my transmission. The clutch was not under warrenty and the clutch is what burned out my transmission. This repair cost me $3200. There is this engine light light that is always on. I had that checked out recently and they told me it has to do with my clutch. I do know this problem first happen 2 weeks after it left the factory with the first owner and was fixed. But this problem with the clutch happened again , a second time with the first owner. The 3rd time it happened to me, the 2nd owner. There have been times I’ve had delays in starting it. Also The GPS does not work alot of times.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      The main point is this clutch problem is recorded to happen 3 times. That seems like a Lemon Law issue.

Anytime it sits for over 4 or 5 days, the battery goes dead. It is currently at the dealership where I purchased it (an hour from my home). They are leaving a meter attached to it to try to find the problem, but 24 hours now and they have not had any luck. Anyone else with this problem???

It was purchased in January 2015. It’s in the shop now as we speak. Last summer the engine was replaced. The car was making weird noises and also it would just stop/traction light would come on whenever I made a turn . This car now is having trouble starting. It has to be started 5-10 times before it runs. there were two recalls that I know of . It’s been to the dodge dealership 6 times for repairs. Comes back worse every single time.I’m paying for a car I don’t even use. The first time it was there for a month. It’s been there A week now and they have no idea what the issue is yet.

Appears related to the engine heat, the engine runs normal temp however the entire engine compartment is very hot, poor ventilation.

Luckily I had just turned off the busy road. Nothing dinged that I recall. Definitely no idiot lights or anything like that. That radio is still going, the lights are on. I’m calling my husband to come get me so I’m not late while trying to restart the car. after about 4 attempts & the car just making a feeble engine turnover sound each time I press the start button, it starts right up like nothing happened & I’m off. No big deal I thought. It was fine coming home from work & going to the store Friday night. I didn’t go anywhere Saturday. Yesterday morning I take it out & I’m in the turning lane from the busy road onto another busy road just a block past where it died Friday. I hear a ding. I look at my dashboard. Nothing. It dies! Still lights & radio. No indication why it died. Again the same starting process. Loss of steering both times it died, which scares the hell outta me! What if i’d turned onto the busy road with cars whizzing by at 55 mph!! Now I’m afraid to drive my own car! WTH!!! I took it today for an oil change even though my indicator said 100% & good. The guy there said it had 4 qts in it. I have an appt at the dealer tomorrow. it’s about 17 miles away but i’m going to take a roundabout back way to get there so I don’t have to get on a highway. A city like this you have to be able to get on highways! How are all of you getting around when your car can just conk at any minute?

Since then, I have had to take the car back to shops including multiple visits to the dealership for the same thing besides a routine oil change. I have had similar problems as of the people in this page have had. Repeatedly shutting off while coasting or stopping at a light or stop sign, and while in a turn. Repeatedly took the car to a dealership to assess problems, and dealer has updated computer software twice since I got it. Seems to do the trick until it happens again. The same electrical problem has happened 3 times now. Very dangerous because car “loses power” and will not restart without numerous attempts. Any one else having same problem? Also, my battery was replaced even though it didn’t need to be…nice service again Dodge. Now tires on car sound like a 4×4 with Super Swampers going down the road….nothing but trouble with this car since I’ve had it. Also has been towed once, and is now unfortunately off warranty.

When the tow truck came, the car magically started up! the dealership did not drive the car(according to the invoice) or fix anything because they couldnt duplicate the issue. two weeks after that, the same exact thing happens. the car does not start. and then does start (by my hand) when the tow truck comes. then they refuse to fix it. then one month and five days after the initial purchase, i leave work, and it DOES NOT START. i call AAA so i can get home (i work two jobs and needed to get ready for work). when the AAA guy comes, he tries to turn the car on. nothing happens. after about 10 minutes and ten or so attempts… it starts up again. lets see if the dealership looks at the car this time. i will have invoices for three attempts. videos of the second two attempts. a AAA worker who has documented the issue and will send me a report. numerous customer complaints from online websites.

The display for the radio always goes black and has issues connecting to my new Samsung device, and the car feels like it wants to stall sometimes. I knew about the recall on my transmission, but was told by the service advisor they would put my name on a list and call me when it was my turn. Most recently I took it to the dealership with approx 25k on it for it’s scheduled maintenance. On 12/10/16, I went to Kansas City which is roughly 200 miles away from my house. On 12/11/16, I was sitting in the Starbucks drive thru, and noticed an awful smell. I assumed at first that my car’s air intake was taking in the exhaust fumes from the vehicle in front if me. However the smell got worse, and then the car started smoking. I at first thought that the smoke was steam coming off of the hood as it was raining and cold. However I quickly realized by the amount of smoke it was not steam. I tried to pull out of the drive thru, and the car wouldn’t do anything. It was running, but transmission would not engage. I received an error message that said “Gear Not Available”, followed by “Service Transmission”, followed by “Switch to Manual to Operate”, followed by the check engine light illuminating. I immediately pulled into a space where my car would be accessible to a tow truck. My car was towed to Landmark Dodge. I then had to rent a car out of my pocket. 12/ 12/ 16, I arrived at Landmark Dodge at 730am. I spoke with Robbie Johnson. I advised him of the above stated issue relating to the tow. I was informed that the dealership could not guarantee that they would be able to get to my vehicle, and that they also did not offer service vehicles. Johnson stated that I needed to go to Hertz and rent a car. I called the dealership where the car was purchased and spoke with the service manager there. He spoke with Johnson, and was given the same answer I was given, No. At this point the car is still under warranty. At 1030am, I went to hertz rented a car, as advised to. And I returned the car i rented sunday back to enterprise. I then received a call from Johnson asking what the problem was, and how long the car was idling (didn’t know 5 minutes was too much). At 1230, I received a call from Johnson advising me my car was all ready to go. He stated “Your vehicle is ready to go, we replaced the transmission control module, and now there is only a faint burning smell. I think your vehicle should make it back to your home”. Should? I drove the car for approximately 7 miles before the smell returned. I will be visiting the dealership where it was purchased on 12/13/16.

The 2.4 multi air. It has less than 16,000 miles on it. Originally took it in do to battery light coming on and then care cutting off. Had no clue it was going to be an engin issue.

In April had to take car to dealership and leave it for a week. Dealership said cylinder was bad and had to replace engine. It took 6 weeks to get car back. In October of 2016 cat gets check engine light and starts running sluggish in Phoenix and had to replace ignition coil and spark plugs in order to get 200 miles back home. Last week on trip to Tucson to do some shopping car starts hesitating and can smell burning rubber occasionally. Yesterday on way home from work check engine light comes on so I call dealership and they tell me they can’t get it in until Jan3. Heading home engine loses power and I smell something burning, I pull over and open hood and the engine is glowing red and flames shooting up over engine. Have it towed to dealership and today they say 3 of the new spark plugs completely melted and that’s what caused it. It sounds like they are just trying to get out of warranty. What should I do.

It had 29000 miles on it atound early August I would pull of my parking spot and the turbo would kick in car would take off and sometimes it was normal. I would be deiving normal and all if a sudden ut would take off. I was comming around a turn and the car stayed running but transmission woyld nit engage. I was stuck with my daughter just over railroad tracks in tbe middel of a turn. Shut it off while on the phone with dodge i started it and put it in drive it drive fine. I took it to the dealer and they said it was one of 3 things. Waited for a loaner 2 or 3 weeks took it back they said it was running fine. I had to wait for light to come on. My faughter was on her way home from work and it would stay running but woyld not go. She was going up a hill and it kept stopping when it started to go it woulf go slow or turbo would kick in she ended up in an accident and car is totaled. Is there anything I can do. Also the cruise control would work when it wanted to.

I have had 3 clutches replaced, a burning smell that comes from my vents still to this day.. But the dealership never smells anything. My check engine light and air bag lights have been a constant struggle. The car sputters and misses once I start to accelerate. Been in 3 times for that issue. Comes back with “oh, we can’t feel anything. This is normal they say.

I COULDN’T even get it in neutral. The dealership said it was just the battery after keeping it for a week and when I it was returned to me it had 2000 miles less on the odometer. I called the Dodge company and they said they would contact the Dodge dealership and see what they could find out Dodge dealership told them all they did was recharge the battery so they contacted me and said all they said they did was recharge the battery……well…. recharging the battery doesn’t knock 2000 miles off your odometer. However I had no proof of this and my car was working again. A few months ago all my interior lights were flickering on and off half came back the other half didn’t. Took it in and the dealership said yeah we got in turned it on and they were all fine….okay… I go to get in my car and again it doesn’t start I tried to jump it it wouldn’t take a jump. this time the car goes into run mode the air condition comes on and all the accessories, I was able to roll down my window but now the window won’t roll up. Also my car wentinto neutral this time… I got a video of the problem and I also got a picture of my mileage.

The transmission failing occured whil at an intersection and could have gotten me killed. Now im dealing with bad bearings, knocking in the steering at low speeds, electronics that are shotty at best, an a.c. blower that works when it feels like it, fuel mileage far below what was advertised for my model even when driving on the highway. Blue tooth barely works and the back up camera stopped working for a while then suddenly worked one day but is blurry to the point of uselessness. And before we go over the the obvious questions I know how cars work I have worked as a mechanic and I did wash the lense off. I have had it for four years and I’m still 5000 upside down because it depreciated so fast. Dodge has lost my business forever after this 2.5 ton paperweight.

The lastest problem for the last month car has been and out the shop. I have no second gear. Going from first to third. they are saying power train warranty won’t cover it now its back in for a popping and smoking under the hood. they are saying the engine needs to be replace. also saying powertrain warranty won’t cover because I don’t have the proper oil change receipts.

I know two college age girls who have had cars stall on the road and the dealer does nothing more than offer to do a ‘road test’ as though the car has a date/time to stall. Thankfully attorneys such as yourself help consumers.

Has under 35,000 on the odo, would it still be covered under the lemon law?? Thank you for your time.

The car already has 88,000 miles on it when I got it. It’s not July, and it has 97,000 miles on it. I have not put that many miles in this car! I got the car at car max and have since had the oil changed. It’s been upkept so I have been doing everything right. I noticed a few month ago that it started to make a noice when I started it. It also would jump and would sound different when the car changes gets. It use to be smooth and sound nice. Today on the way to a doctors appointment I’m 31 weeks pregnant the car starts to accelerate when I wasn’t even pushing the gas! It’s RPM went up and it jumped while I was slowing down and spending up. Right in the middle of an interaction! It scared the crap out of me. On the way home from the doctors appointment everything got worse! The car still stalled and wouldn’t excllerate at all and when it did it jumped and got into higher RPM. Then the engine light came on and blinked and the owner manual said to cut the car off and take it in right away. My husband and I took it to the closest repair shop we could find. They ran a test and said it was time for a service and that maybe an engin coil was out. Once he got in there he called us back and told us to look at what was going on. The Head Gasket had a leak in all 4 places. It needed 2 new coils and 4 new spark plugs. I could only afford the one coil and spak plus which was $437. I left with the car un drivable. It need another coil that is $120 plus service fees and the $500 to fix the Head Gasket. So that 2 more times I have to take the car in if that even all the problem when he gets down in there. So my car is just sitting out in the drive way. I do not want to drive it. It could lead to an engin fire and I’m not putting all this money in for the car to still be broken. Especially when it’s not even been a years since I got it. When we got the oils change they said nothing about these problems. I have a lemon car and now I cannot get around for the delivery of my baby. I need a car and fast!

Brought battery, after one day car failed again. Now repair shop saying alternator.. I am redisent about their diagnostic as seems the Dart has been manufactured poorly given the host of reported “car stalls then shut off ” complaints since 2013 at least. Are their any recalls? Do I have a LEMON complaint?

In October of 2017 the car started to shut off while she was driving. She took it back to the place she bought it and they did an oil change and told her the Darts are known for burning oil. It is now February 2018 and the car is starting to shut off again while driving. We are taking it back to the car lot again on Monday!!
