prior to exp. of warranty, (36000 miles) vehicle was brought into an independent shop for a complete inspection. was informed ball joints and idler arm were completely worn out. previous owner, (a personal friend) and myself never '4 wheeled' the truck. normal city/highway use. viewed internet bulletin boards on dakota maint problems, and found others have had the same problem with early ball joint/idler arm failures. 36,000 miles under normal use is far to early for this type of problem. i fear there are many dakota's out there with the same problem. *ak

Bluefield, WV

rear hatch leaks water, noisy rt front susp. constantly having problems . have complained to dealer said they could find nothing wrong. water leaks not covered under warranty, trailing axle not covered under warranty, air cond. idler not covered under warranty. windows will not roll up or down. there have been forty nine instances of trailing axle failure reported to nhtsa. local mechanics have told me of five failures they have found in my area. it seems to be a pattern of triailing axle failures. must be the reason they are not covered under. i would suggest that a possible recall be looked into. also the engine has started to use a quart of oil ever one thousand miles since approximately fifty thousand miles. my thoughts are that when you pay $14,000. 00 for a vehicle that you should expect to get better service from it. *ak( dot number: tire size: p205-60x14 )
