Is a recall on the horizon?
By mrbig on


2004 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab SXT 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


I have had an '04 4wd club cab for a
week.Immediately, I noticed an issue
with the shifting, which was spotty.For
those of us who have driven stick
shifts, it felt like when one should
have been in a lower gear.At lower
rpms, there was a
significant 'missing'...after the
automatic trans shifted into a higher
gear.It was most noticable at 42-50
mph.Hopefully, this makes sense.I was
told that 4 other vehicles had similar
problems and that Dodge had to 'flash'
the computer and was working on the
problem.Any idea when this will take
place OR does anyone have any
additional information??

Best Features

Great look...smooth ride[I've had 3 Dakotas in a row]Nice room in club cab.Functional dashboard...superb pick up!

Worst Features

Fix the computer problem.Automatic shifting should be seamless!Gas milage could improve as well[The new 300 has a hemi and boasts of over 22 miles per gallon!The Dakota has a 6!
