problem #1

Jul 182001

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • 19,532 miles
Numerous front suspension problems. Bad ball joint/control arm assemblies/ bad tie-rods/bad shock absorbers, and bad strut bushings. All of these issues have been replaced by the dealer. Most of the problems started at about 15000 miles, and have continued. Way too many problems at low miles. I still have problems at 51000 miles.
