    The sales of the Dart are somewhat a surprise, but a couple of reasons make sense. With mostly stick shift models at dealers people might have been disappointed are waiting for more dealer stock from which to choose. Under Fiat policy, it seems to me, on new models the rollout is slow and modest as the public gets to know the product. In addition, the Dart, dispite all the hype, is really an unknown to the general public who will begin to seek them out as more hit the streets. I doubt the sales momentum will take long to develop, since the Dart is a solid product that will satisfy alot of customers who need a cute compact sedan.
    That said I too thought the Darts would be flying off dealer lots, but I guess the pudding is still thickening

    Checked out some Darts last month. They're great cars. Hopefully, they'll start selling and pick up some market share from Toyota and Honda -- as I'm so sick of the Corollas and Civics that polluted the freeways here in Northern California.

    Comparing the Dart to the Volt... seriously?

    Apples and Oranges.

    I agree. The Dart is destined to be a top seller and a car that will boost Chrysler's market share, reputation and bottom line. The Volt is a car destined to oblivion, has severly tarnished Chevy's reputation and is draining GM and the American taxpayer of billions of valuable dollars. More like apples and rotten grapes.
