Transmision and Fan problems
By Charles on
Vehicle2008 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Crew Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewThe first night I owned the vehicle I started it and the Variable Speed Fan was locked up. It roared like an 18 wheeler. Then came the transmission problem. When coming to a stop, at 25 MPH the transmission dropped into low gear and jolted the whole vehicle. Many trips to dealer never resolved these problems. Tech says fan problem is normal!!! I got rid of it at 28,900 miles. The decision was made solely due to the problems with the vehicle.
Best FeaturesI liked the design, ride and comfort. I disliked having repeat problems especially with the transmission. The Final Straw was when the dealer's technician (Chapman Dodge) said nothing was wrong with the transmission. Tech says Differential is SHATTERING, needs an oil change every 15k miles.
Worst FeaturesBuild a more reliable vehicle; concentrate on quality. Fix it when it has a problem; don't try to get it past warranty and dump the cost of repair on the buyer.
