Nice Truck - some issues

1997 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

New lower balljoints 65k,new front brakes at 60k. Dodge Service fouled fuel injectors and rails while installing new fuel pump at 55k and tried to charge another $1300 (offered no explanation). I cleaned them myself for two bucks and found the coating inside the tank was deteriorating and ruined the pump. They reintroduced the contaminated fuel after replacing the pump. Don't go to Dodge boys for repairs!!!!!!! Air conditioner problems and heater inadequate.

Best Features

Best looking truck on the road. Drives as smooth as a Cadillac at 95 mph without noise or viberation of any kind. Very comfortable.

Worst Features

Better lower balljoints. Computer settings to run regular gas as advertized. Better heater/air conditioner. Add inline fuel filter. Better fuel tank coating.
