Is a recall on the horizon?

2004 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab SXT 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)

Review

I have had an '04 4wd club cab for a week.Immediately, I noticed an issue with the shifting, which was spotty.For those of us who have driven stick shifts, it felt like when one should have been in a lower gear.At lower rpms, there was a significant 'missing'...after the automatic trans shifted into a higher gear.It was most noticable at 42-50 mph.Hopefully, this makes sense.I was told that 4 other vehicles had similar problems and that Dodge had to 'flash' the computer and was working on the problem.Any idea when this will take place OR does anyone have any additional information??

Best Features

Great look...smooth ride[I've had 3 Dakotas in a row]Nice room in club cab.Functional dashboard...superb pick up!

Worst Features

Fix the computer problem.Automatic shifting should be seamless!Gas milage could improve as well[The new 300 has a hemi and boasts of over 22 miles per gallon!The Dakota has a 6!
