Car Stall problem #3
The vehicle was a 2003 Dodge Dakota quad cab. VIN of the vehicle was 1D7HG38ZX3_. When the truck is started and allowed to warm up for approximately 3 to 4 minutes and then put into reverse the truck dies. I have had the truck back to the dealership 4 times now. They have told me that they are unable to get the problem to replicate. I know that this is not true because I have had the truck for three months and it has died every time I have put it into reverse. The last time they called me to tell me that they could not get the truck to die so I made a trip to the dealership and replicated the problem for them. The dealership then called Chrysler and Chrysler told them to put a "CO-pilot" on the truck and hopefully that would catch the problem. I picked the truck up yesterday after they installed the CO pilot and today when I went out to start it, died six times when I put it in reverse. I took the truck back to the dealership this morning and they removed the CO pilot and said that they would send the info to Chrysler. I am hoping to get this problem fixed but as of right now I am not going to hold my breath. It was 08/01/03 when this car stall issue happened.
Car Stall problem #4
4x4 Dodge Dakota quad cab stalls periodically. Has stalled 12 times between the period 10/30/03 and 12/19/03. Dealership claims it cannot recreate. Usually occurs within a few minutes of starting. Typically has been at slow speeds (20 mph or lower), but has occurred as high as 40 mph. Typically restarts after sitting for a few minutes. Would not restart, however, after stall on 12/14/03. Currently on 5th service visit. Dealership tells me no error codes show up on the computer. I suggested installation of a CO-pilot. After lengthy wait for a CO-pilot (national backorder per Chrysler), event was recorded on CO-pilot and has been sent to Chrysler. As of yet, no word on results of CO-pilot data. I have begun arbitration process under mn lemon law to have vehicle replaced/repurchased. This car stall issue occurred Thu., Oct. 30, 2003.

Car Stall problem #6
The vehicle is a 2003 Dodge Dakota quad cab. I have a light knocking in my engine. The first time I took it to the dealer, they stated there was something wrong with the engine, but unable to indentify the problem. I took it back again. They had it for 3 days, and said there was nothing wrong with it. They say all Dodge engines make that noise. Unknown to them, I have 2 and my other does not make the same noise. It has occasionally stalled both backing up and going forward. There is a pulling to the right even after having it aligned and balanced. It does not shift properly and won't stay in cruise control while climbing a hill. Also my oil hose was loose causing a rattling under the hood. The light showing you the gear your in did not work properly. Over all the worse vehicle I have ever owned with a hefty tag. This issue happened on Sunday, April 18, 2004.
