Well i've been preapproved for a dart just going to sit on the decision a little bit more on what one i want if i do get one. I'm liking the 1.4L because its got a turbo just like my 1.8T Jetta. Would prefer one that is automatic, have a girlfriend who doesn't know how to drive a standard and i'm not gonna lie i'm not the greatest!

I'm into performance and i know dodge is too! But i'm not too familiar with the Fiat and being the 1.4L is their motor i've been doing tons of research. But who can turn this sucker down when it gets great gas mileage, good price and get discounts from work! If i do get one i'll be sure to post up some pictures. Going to test drive one or two tommorrow before work.

If anyone has more info on the motors please post up, seen the MultiAir explained on youtube that was posted here. I'm pretty good with websites i am learning programming and i've always been playing with the web used to run a vb site so familiar with the layout and great choice!

Not gonna lie if your looking for performance I suggest wait on the r/t or srt the 1.4 is more of an economical car with some performance thrown in :p the aftermarket scene is gonna focus more on the Rt and srt in my opinion

Welcome from SE Michigan!!
I am waiting until the R/T comes out. I drove a couple of the 1.4L cars and while they were OK, I want to at least drive the 2.4. I am driving a 2.2L S10 pick up with a 5 speed manual so I am familar with smaller engines. You had to keep the 1.4 above 2500 RPM to get any pull out of it.
I just have to be patient and wait for early next spring.

R/T

The dealer Artioli Dodge in Enfield Ct. called me twice in two days. You can factory order an R/T in two weeks they told me.
:) Yay!

I got the 1.4l turbo for mpg purposes...I traded in my 2011 Charget R/T so uhh yeah nothing was going to compare...that being said it's a fun little car for only $20K brand new.

I love my Limited! I just bought it last week and the dealer told me that you can't order any R/T's until January with delivery in the Spring, so I decided to get a Limited instead.

I'm doing my home work on this car. Currently have Chrysler 300 and took the Turbo for a spin at the dealership today. I will keep the 300 and make a Turbo Dart my daily driver.
I hear of a possible 300 HP version for 2014. We'll see if I wait that long, or get one before then. I'm interested in hearing new users experience.
