DODGE DAKOTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 12, 2003.DODGE DAKOTA 2003, manufactured by CHRYSLER GROUP LLC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . truck will not shift properly when going up grade. engine will rev at 4500-5000 rpm but will not shift until i slightly release the gas pedal. truck will also perform multiple hard up shifts when in cruise control going up grade... had the truck in for service 3 times. first time in may, 1 month after purchase, the dealer reprogrammed the computer with a "flash update" and adjusted throttle linkage. that was no help. several months later i took it in for the same problem, and dealer found nothing wrong. the third time, january 2004, i took a technician for a test drive, and he agreed that the truck was not shifting properly. they replaced the "valve body" in the transmission and the problem has now gotten worse. they informed me that the truck is now having problem shifting out of park. they claim they need to replace the same part they just installed, they say it must have been a defective "valve". furthermore, the technician is now saying the original shifting problem is normal because dodge reprogrammed the transmission to avoid multiple up & down shifting when going up a grade. this was down to put "less stress" on the transmission. doesn't make sense, dodge is saving the transmission by making it work less and destroying the engine by letting it rev at 5000 rpm..... p.s. this shifting problem has been occurring since the day i drove the truck off the lot. *la.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 200 miles.

DODGE DAKOTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 13, 2003.DODGE DAKOTA 2003, manufactured by DAIMLERCHRYSLER CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM . there has been a startling number of ball joint failures in the 1998-2003 dodge dakota and dodge durango vehicles. i own a 2003 dakota, and had an independent mechanic inspect mine. because my vehicle only had 8500 miles on it at the time, the ball joints checked out ok. it was his estimation that because of the greaseless fitting, however, i could expect the same problem so many other dakota owners have had in the near future. these parts should last 100,000 miles, but the ones on these dodge vehicles fail at about 25,000 to 30,000. i have voiced my concerns to dodge. the person i talked to at their recall center acknowledged the problem and that their was an investigation ongoing at this time, and told me to listen for "clunking" noises in the front end of the vehicle. of the reports i've seen of failure of the joint, few say there was any warning of this type, however.*ak.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1D7HL12X93S.

DODGE DAKOTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2003.DODGE DAKOTA 2003, manufactured by DAIMLERCHRYSLER CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE . dodge manufactured my vehicle with a 20 gallon tank, though it was built for the spec of a 22 gallon tank and and all the electronics were set to a 22 gallon tank. when i noticed the erroneous output from the computer i asked my dealer to investigate. this is when they discovered that i had a 20 gallon tank and that my model would not accept a 22 gallon tank. they also mentioned that they had others on their lot at the time with the same problem which dodge has printed new window stickers for since then. the only thing they could do is adjust the computer to be correct. my complaint revolves around the trucks that were sold with this condition, i believe a tsb should be issued to correct the computers to 20 gallon tanks and to notify the owners of the potential problem. since bringing this issue to dodges attention, they have been very evasive in their response when i asked what they are going to do for all the owners affected by this. i believe it poses a potential safety problem in that if an owner relies on the computer, they could run out of gas at an inoppurtune time. like in the middle of a freeway.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Dodge Dakota 2003 problem was reported in MILPITAS, CA.

Dodge Dakota 2003 Vehicle Speed Control Cruise Control Review #10066135

DODGE DAKOTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 14, 2004.DODGE DAKOTA 2003, manufactured by CHRYSLER GROUP LLC had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CRUISE CONTROL . i have been working with dodge chrysler daimler to resolve a problem with our cruise control. the safety issue is that you are never sure how the cruise control will respond. sometimes you notice cars and truck whizzing by and you're holding up the traffic. based the dealers repeated attempts to diagnose and fix the problem and the manufacturer's bulletin on how to try to remedy the problem by "re training the computer", i believe the real fix goes back to the computer program and sensors used in the system. can you please check into this issue for me and let me know what your advise is? copy of part of the correspondence to dealer follows: dodge country of appleton 4400 west college avenue as you can confirm we have had our 2003 dodge dakota in three or more times now to try and fix the cruise control. [xxx] there are basically two main symptoms: 1) unexpected shift into high gear when the vehicle is on cruise control - these events do not seem to coincide with any specific road condition. 2) non - responsive cruise control - the vehicle speed drifts down 10 mph or more off of set point on a very gradual incline with no response at all by the cruise control. once you reach level road the speed will very slowly creep up over what seems like several miles. this does not happen consistently or repeat under any specific road condition. sometimes at 60 - 70 mph on both gentle and steep inclines the cruise works fine. speed may only drop of one or two mph and the engine doesn't even shift into a higher gear. yet under identical conditions, sometimes at the same speeds of 60 - 70 mph the cruise will respond by kicking into the next higher gear and other times the cruise will not respond at all let the speed drop down 10mph. too slow a speed is just as dangerous as too fast a speed. another person i asked with an identical vehicle indicated similar problems. updated 07/26/2012 *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6) .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1D7HG38XX3S.

DODGE DAKOTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 15, 2003.DODGE DAKOTA 2003, manufactured by DAIMLERCHRYSLER CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . when the truck is started and put into drive it hesitates then shifts really hard. also when the truck is started and allowed to warm up for around three minutes it dies when it is put in reverse. when it does this none of the lights on the instrument panel come on. the truck just dies. i have had the truck into the dealership four times now. the first time i took it in, the dealership told me that they couldn't get the problem to replicate and told me to bring it back when it got worse. i am now on my forth attempt to get the problem fixed and they are continuing to tell me that they can't get the problem to replicate. so i went to the dealership and replicated the problem for them. that was on 10-27-03. it is now 11-06-03 and they called me today to tell me that they still can't get the truck to replicate. but they have hooked up a "co-pilot" which will read the trucks computer and hopefully catch the problem. i am having a really hard time believing that they can't replicate the problem. i have had the truck for three months now and the damn thing has died every single time i have put it in reverse. i am positive that i am being bent over. i know that i will never buy another chrysler again..Mileage was 0 miles.

DODGE DAKOTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 04, 2007.DODGE DAKOTA 2003, manufactured by CHRYSLER GROUP LLC had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER BALL JOINT . to whom it may concern, i own a 2003 dodge dakota quad cab slt. and i have run into a lot of problems with this truck that people i know say they had very similar problems with the same make of vehicle. to start with my truck only has about 62,184 miles on it, for a 2003 model truck, that is considered low mileage. the problems i have run into is as follows: both front wheel hub bearing sets have prematurely failed, in particular, the right front hub tried to lock up on me and almost caused me to loose control of the truck, i have since replaced that hub but still need to replace the left front before it locks up:second is that the steering and suspension system has no provisions for preventative maintenance, i.e. no grease zircs for the ball joints, tie rods,upper and lower control arm bushings, wheel bearings, etc...causing rapid wear and failure:third big issue, i have already replaced all four brake rotors due to warpage. the brake calipers were built with some type of composite plastic pistons that distort due to excessive heat build up in the brakes. which in turn causes uneven pad contact, that then causes excessive heat, accelerated pad wear, brake fade, rotor warpage, and an awful "squeal" when the brakes are applied. i have noticed that my brand new brake pads are actually cracked now because of a combination of the calipers and the hubs going bad: fourth issue is that the transmission causes the engine to over "rev" in the highway passing gear especially with the over drive and cruise control on. when you're driving down the highway and you give it a little more gas to get around somebody, the engine rpm's shouldn't go up to sometimes around 7000, that in turn could cause premature engine or transmission failure. i have been in contact with daimler-chrysler about these concerns but they just keep giving me the run around and not answering my questions. i still have the old parts also..Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1D7HL48X83S.

DODGE DAKOTA 2003 car safety problem was reported on Mar 04, 2007.DODGE DAKOTA 2003, manufactured by CHRYSLER GROUP LLC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:DISC . to whom it may concern, i own a 2003 dodge dakota quad cab slt. and i have run into a lot of problems with this truck that people i know say they had very similar problems with the same make of vehicle. to start with my truck only has about 62,184 miles on it, for a 2003 model truck, that is considered low mileage. the problems i have run into is as follows: both front wheel hub bearing sets have prematurely failed, in particular, the right front hub tried to lock up on me and almost caused me to loose control of the truck, i have since replaced that hub but still need to replace the left front before it locks up:second is that the steering and suspension system has no provisions for preventative maintenance, i.e. no grease zircs for the ball joints, tie rods,upper and lower control arm bushings, wheel bearings, etc...causing rapid wear and failure:third big issue, i have already replaced all four brake rotors due to warpage. the brake calipers were built with some type of composite plastic pistons that distort due to excessive heat build up in the brakes. which in turn causes uneven pad contact, that then causes excessive heat, accelerated pad wear, brake fade, rotor warpage, and an awful "squeal" when the brakes are applied. i have noticed that my brand new brake pads are actually cracked now because of a combination of the calipers and the hubs going bad: fourth issue is that the transmission causes the engine to over "rev" in the highway passing gear especially with the over drive and cruise control on. when you're driving down the highway and you give it a little more gas to get around somebody, the engine rpm's shouldn't go up to sometimes around 7000, that in turn could cause premature engine or transmission failure. i have been in contact with daimler-chrysler about these concerns but they just keep giving me the run around and not answering my questions. i still have the old parts also..Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1D7HL48X83S.
