    Yeah I'm plugging a new forum of ours :) BUT I'm actually buying the R/T, so join me over on the Dodge Dart Forums if you are thinking about buying this car or in fact buying it. I'd love to see you there. My handle is the same. If you sign up please introduce yourself!!

    BTW the site looks pretty awesome (well in my opinion)

    The Dart is replacing the Caliber, which replaced the Neon....might not be as much as you think.

    And we have a Dart Forum and no Mustang Forum????? WTF????

    looks nice, I like the dash lights and the display, but too small and too pricey for the options. I'd have been interested in the Limited, but once you factor options, then the thing is pushing $25K MSRP. For that, i'd rather get a larger vehicle that is 2 yrs old with more options for the price.

    R/T is pretty loaded out and comes in at 23K and some change. I'm waiting on that trim...

    We'd be WAYYYYYYYYYYY late to that game. There's already hundreds of them.

    I had an 09 Dodge Challenger that I lost in the divorce :(

    However this new Dodge Dart does look pretty nice, I loved the Challenger had 35k miles on it and all I had to do was change the oil and clean the K&N.

    Looked at one at the auto show last winter and again at the Nascar race in Dover. They are nice. Was seriously considering one to replace our 09 Journey. But after major issues with that I was a little leery about burying a first year model again. And at the time I was ready to buy they were still about a month from release.

    Dodge tech here.....we are getting them in by the boatload.

    My general rule of thumb: don't buy first year models.

    The fiat multiair engine is incredibly complex too, i would personally stay away from it.

    I hate to be negative .... but did you just read what this tech says.... "getting them in by the boatload?" What kind of company releases a car filled with bugs.

    Thats the problem with the "made in the USA" brand. Quality control is lacking severely. That is why I jumped from a piece of crap Chrysler Town and Country mini van and a Dodge Durango to a Honda Odyssey and a Nissan Armada. HUGE difference in quality, ride, durability and innovation and most of all, reliability.
