2001 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab 2WD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this 2001 Dakota used in
January 2004. It has been back to the
dealer, four times in the past 8 months
for electrical problems. They replace
the PCM, CTM, fuel pump and several
other electrical items. I looked on
the internet to see if anyone has had
these same problems and found hundreds
of people experienced the exact same
problems with their Dakotas. You would
think Dodge would replace these items
for free because some many people have
had problems but they haven't. These
electrical problems are serious and it
has been very expensive. I will be
getting rid of this truck soon.

Best Features

The V-8 4.9L is fun!

Worst Features

Major blind spots to the drivers left. Fix the major electrical and reliability problems. From what I have read they haven't solved the reliability problems with the new Dodges also.
