2012/13 Dodge Dart... thoughts?

http://www.motortrend.com/auto_shows...13_dodge_dart/

this new fecal excretion they are calling the "Dart" is horrid. how do you put such an iconic name on such an eyesore. I admire their ambition for wanting to have another economical vehicle in their lineup to bring in more business. and with todays economy crisis another car with 30+mpg is a good move but honestly Dodge, I think you can do better. Id rather they name it something else besides "Dart". what are everyone's thoughts on this.

I don't think the original Dart was any great looker or reliability king either: http://www.allpar.com/cars/dodge/dart.html

This one at least has a chance of being bought by someone under the age of 50, and lasting through the end of the loan!

Nothing great

I heard on the radio they were releasing a new "Dart" couldn't really remember what a old Dart looked like but love the new challenger and the charger is pretty cool. Pulled up the picture and what a disappointment another hyundia look alike...They could have done so much better.

True the Original Dart was not the best looking car of its day and as many will attest, not the most reliable either. Still a piece of history that they now have turned into what we see now. I call it eye rape. its a shame really. The demand now for economical Eco- friendly vehicles is on the rise but why does that mean that styling has to suffer.
