Dakota drivetrain quality
By ezcc on


2005 Dodge Dakota 4dr Club Cab ST 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


The driveshaft that couples the front axle to the transfer case is ungreaseable and only lasts about 75000 miles the rear axles splines break and need to be replaced before 100000miles and the auto trans will be due for a rebuild at around a 100000 also, This all happens even if you change fluids and do maintenance as recommended in owners manual. This are very light duty vehicles, not really trucks as far my definition of truck goes.
