problem #1

Jul 092003

Dakota 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,455 miles
Right rear door lock made buzzing noise when locked, which is startling when auto-lock engages on acceleration. Dealer repaired, and as I left parking lot, it began again, and was repaired. About 3 weeks later, left rear lock did the samething and was repaired. Of course, the dealer did not believe me until I took time off of work to take it to them. I asked them to replace all remaining motors, but they refused since it was still in warranty and not broken yet. Two months later, rear driver side automatic winow did not work.
