Very good all around truck
No issues up to this point.
One recall for faulty wire harness placement which dealer corrected.
I'm very aware of an issue with the upper ball joints on Dakotas and Durangos wearing prematurely. Although Daimler-Chrysler has yet to officially announce their stance on this, I have been having them checked with every scheduled maintenance. So far, no indication of premature wear.
I am very pleased with my 2003 Dakota SXT Club Cab 4X2.
Dealership was very accommodating and made for easy purchase.
The truck rides smooth and quiet. Very little noise within the cabin. Rock solid build. No squeaks or rattles.
I've been getting 20mpg which is more than sticker.
Suspension is strong and absorbs the New England roads very well.
Very little tire wear with scheduled rotation.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
