1997 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Bought at 68K, no problems till next year. Brought to Dodge for a
recall and check engine light. They said I had to replace lower ball
joints, turn brakes, clean rear breaks, bad oxygen sensor causing check
engine light, and leaking thermostate. Total repair cost over was $1,000. I
paid $70.00 for the diagnostic and left.Went straight to Good Year
to check the ball joints, they said I needed NO repair. Was Dodge
looking at the wrong truck or trying to take advantage of a female? Still
haven't had any of these repairs done after a year and the truck runs like a
dream. Love my truck. The only repairs have been regular maintance and a
new serp. belt.
