Dakota 8-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
I have a 2005 Dodge Dakota laramie. The brakes usually work all right but if there is a little bit of ice the ABS engages early and the car does not stop. This has happened twice to me on ice. Once I almost hit someone. Today I did rearend someone. The car didn't even feel like it was slowing down at all.
