My wife's Dart has had problems starting twice since we have gotten it last month. The warning lights come on on the dash and the motor turns over but doesnt fire. After a letting it sit a while it does start. It has only done this 2 times but we have only had it a month. It is scheduled to go back to the dealer for diagnostics but I wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue. It is a Ralleye with the 2.0 and Atx.

Look up the recalls they have on them, Ive heard PCM issues is a big problem right now with them. Something in the programming isnt right. But Id look up the recalls to be on the safe side. Its a first year production car so there will be issues. Its the nature of the beast. Hope you get it fixed and its nothing major.

Got the car fixed, dealer said had a broken wire. It had a screw in a wire that was under the rear speaker tray, and that there may be some kind of recall for that issue now. Then they replaced the speaker and reprogrammed remote start and the car is all fixed up for now. IT has not had a PCM issue yet. Yeah I expected some issues for the first year I just wanted to see what everyone thought.

I love the car, wish I could afford 2 so that I could give the 6 speed manual a try. I have a post of the pics if you want to check it out.
