problem #1

Feb 012002

Dakota 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
In shop (7) times in (5) months. Same complaint each time. Returned in same condition. Dealer says they "do not know about the lemon law". I am towing well under rated capacity, now told this is a "weak truck" by service manager. Stated my intentions before purchase and was assured this truck will tow "much more than I asked about. I tow about 1100 lbs about 2 days a week. The problems occured well before I started towing anything. I would appreciate any help or advice you can give me. Thank-you.
