I purchased a new Dart off the lot this morning. I got an SXT with some added creature comforts, 1.4, 6 speed, and the dual exhaust setup. I had no intentions of buying when I went in, however they had the exact car I was looking for sitting on the lot, for less money than I was expecting (always nice!).
Thus far, I absolutely love the car. Its pretty peppy for a compact, and I averaged about 36mpg after driving it ~100 miles today (very hilly terrain).
If anyone has any info on how to get the trunk LEDs to work, or if there is a way the dealer can activate them, please post it! I'd love to have the functioning lights, but as of now that is the only thing I'd change so all in all, the Dart seems like a great little car so far!
