2004 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Within a week of owning the truck, I
noticed the automatic was
shifting "funny". Around 40-50 mph
there was "missing" after shifting into
the higher gear. (could put the pedal
to the floor and no increased power)It
went back to the dealer, in the shop
for nearly two weeks. Results were
Dodge had a computer problem, no idea
when it could be fixed. Dealer admitted
several other V-6s on the lot had the
same problem. No help from the
manufactuer. Went to trade it in on a V-
8, dealer tried to make us take a hit
of $4,200 negative equity for truck we
had less than 3 weeks.(with two weeks
in the shop) They put the
defective truck back on the lot and
sold it!
