problem #1

May 012005

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
The contact stated while driving a T highway speeds on bumpy roads the vehicle had poor stability. He felt as though he could lose control of the vehicle. He took the vehicle to the dealer numerous times. The dealer was unable to determine the cause of the problem. He noted daimler/Chrysler were aware of this problem but at this time there was no solution. The dealer resurfaced a rotor on the front brakes which did relieve some vibration in the front suspension. No further repairs have been made at this time.
