problem #1

Jan 222006

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,525 miles
Sunday 1-22-06 the cd player quit working in 2005 Dodge Dakota. This truck has 6, 540 miles on it. Today 1-24-06 the battery was dead when I woke up due to the cd player trying to eject the cds all night long. I drove the truck to the dealership, and they told me they have to order a new radio. I drove over 30 miles to get to the dealer and 30 miles back. This is unacceptable.
