You won't believe what this idiot car salesman told me today...
I went by a local Dodge dealer today to see the 7 inch LCD instrument panel display in the new Darts, just out of curiosity. I was sent to some noob car salesman, he had to be in the 20-25 year age range.
As I was looking under the hood of a 1.4 Turbo Dart, he showed me the under-hood insulation pad, and pointed out the plastic round fasteners used to hold the pad to the hood. The same kind of plastic fasteners I've seen on Mopars for many years.
So this genius tells me those plastic fasteners are designed to melt in case of an engine fire, and the insulation pad falls on the engine and smothers the fire! Yes, he really said this! I about told him he was a frickin' idiot to his face, it was so ridiculous! I came right out and told him that comment was going online! And here it is.
Then he starts about "Look how light the hood is", like that's a selling point, and "Look at all that trunk space". I pretty much ignored him after that hood pad comment.
The 7 inch display was lame too, It seems you can only move around the speedometer, compass, and shift indicator. The Tach and Fuel gauges aren't in the LCD and stay on the sides.
