Review

I have been satisfied with the truck,
with one exception... it has developed
a very bad squeak due to the sway bar
moving inside the outer bushings.
Dakota forums expose this as a common
problem, but Dodge has made no effort
to help consumers with it. To date,
there is no cure, just a very
expensive temporary fix - have Dodge
replace parts for inflated costs.


Best Features

Truck looks and runs great.


Worst Features

Suggest Dodge weld a bead on each end of the sway bar to prevent recurring squeak problems... and offer to fix mine.

Review

I have been satisfied with the overall
performance of the truck. There have
been reports with the ball joint issues
that concern me. The engine has been
missing since the truck hit 38,000
miles, from time to time. I have taken
it to the dealership(Walters Dodge) on
two separate occasions for the problem.
The problem remians persistant.

Regards,

Mr. Monty Dale Rogers

Review

Despite the numerous warranty items
that have been replaced, I like the
truck's mechanical reliability. What
broke? Door lock switches constantly
cycling to 'unlock', leather steering
wheel peeled, shifter boot on the
column ripped, battery shorted,
driver's door window regulator
mechanism popped, cruise control broke
(bad switch somehere). Averages about
19mpg on the highway and 16mpg in the
city. Mine has just about every option.


Best Features

Leather seating, Infinity stereo, fold- up rear seats, handling and ride will surprise you


Worst Features

Better electrical parts (what's failed on mine), known front ball joint problem that Dodge doesn't like to warranty, wimpy side A/C vents in the front

Review

great vehicle only had one item needing
warranty work. It was a switch that
came loose.


Best Features

the four doors provide not only space for passengers, but also cargo that you don't want in the box. it is extremely convenient.


Worst Features

i can't think of anything i would change.
