2002 Dodge Dakota SLT 4.7 from North America
Overall, if Dodge would fix the ongoing quality control issues they may have something
Approximately 8 months after owning the vehicle the left front shock starting leaking.
A few months further down the road the air bag light starting coming on.
Both of these issues required service by the dealership. They were both covered by the manufacturer warranty.
I thought I'd give an American made vehicle a try, however I am starting to regret that decision. My Nissan truck was rock solid and required zero trips to the dealership even after nearly 15 years of use. Due to the salty conditions in the upper mid-west in the winter the poor old thing just rusted out.
I will dump the Dakota prior to the 3-year warranty and I will not return to buy another.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
