Nice Truck - some issues
By Cookie on


1997 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


New lower balljoints 65k,new front
brakes at 60k. Dodge Service fouled
fuel injectors and rails while
installing new fuel pump at 55k and
tried to charge another $1300 (offered
no explanation). I cleaned them myself
for two bucks and found the coating
inside the tank was deteriorating and
ruined the pump. They reintroduced the
contaminated fuel after replacing the
pump. Don't go to Dodge boys for
repairs!!!!!!! Air conditioner problems
and heater inadequate.

Best Features

Best looking truck on the road. Drives as smooth as a Cadillac at 95 mph without noise or viberation of any kind. Very comfortable.

Worst Features

Better lower balljoints. Computer settings to run regular gas as advertized. Better heater/air conditioner. Add inline fuel filter. Better fuel tank coating.
