Never left me in a lurch
By Webtiger on


2001 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab 4WD (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


I love my truck but the engineering and
component quality leave a lot to be
4 wheel drive problems with rear pinion
seal leakage replaced 3 times. Slip
yoke is always the culprit with this
problem. Have also had the rear drive
shaft replaced last warranty visit
along with 3rd rear pinion seal
Brake rotors turned 3 times can't get
more than 12,000 miles without
pulsation setting in.
The dealer has been fantastic about
addressing all the problems with this
truck I would highly recommend you shop
a dealer as much as price.

Best Features

Good points: V-8 highly reliable Tows a ton Goes like greased lightening very comfortable seats good storage capacity inside 4 Wheel drive really works well

Worst Features

Better engineering on brakes and the 4 wheel drive components. There's no way a truck babied like mine should have constant leaks from transmission components
