While the GM inventory woes have been a fixture of TTAC for months, excess inventory isn’t the sole domain of GM’s pickups. Chrysler is having its own issues, with the Dodge Dart suffering from a glut of inventory.
Ward’s Auto reports that there is a 112 day supply of Darts, roughly double the industry’s preferred supply level. While Chrysler’s Illinois plant is cited as a factor in the oversupply of these cars, the launch of the Dart didn’t go as smoothly as planned. Initial sales were poor, hampered by an oversupply of manual transmission cars (yes, heresy, I know).
