PLEASE DON'T BUY!! Dodge Corp. NO help!!
By WillieP on

Vehicle

2002 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport 2WD SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Nothing but problems since the first week!! Stuck with this P.O.S. Several problems with the transmission that supposedly was "matched nicely" to the 4.7L engine. Problems are "deemed normal" by the dealership. I'll drive it till something breaks to recreate the problem for them. Interior fan motor is done. Nothing like the smell of a burning fan motor in the morning. Nice acrid smell of burning plastic/wires. Popping noise at front wheel bearings in turns. Tried to get Dodge Corp. to swap it out and I'd pay the difference. NO DEAL! I'll just take the couple thousand loss on a trade soon. It'll be worth it!

Favorite Features

4.7L motor. Only thing that's not giving problems (Yet). Good leg room. That's it!!

Suggested Improvements

Gas milage. Retool of major components. Get rid of plastic parts in the interior; they're a little more fragile than composites. Thanks for nothing! I'll just take the loss of trade-in versus what is owed and chalk it up to NEVER buy Dodge again!!!
