Friday afternoon off the assembly line
By Ken on


2003 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab Sport 4WD SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


Nice truck, but at 31k the tranny would lock in 2nd gear (they called it limp mode) any time it went through a large puddle. Replaced 2 sensors several times to no avail. Dealer stopped covering the replacements after the third event. They contacted Dodge in 2007 and told if the sensors lose sight of the ground, they do this to avoid an overspeed. Told them to bypass the sensors all together, seemed to work. However, in 6 years it went through 2 wiper motors, 2 blower relays, the tail gate failed twice, seat broke once and it leaked (they tried to fix that twice). Guess it was the Friday pm one. Anyway, traded it in the day I got the title. Have a Tacoma now.

Best Features

It looked nice.

Worst Features

For mine? Don't know where to start, maybe the tranny issue.
