2000 Dodge Dakota recalls

 

Suspension & Steering, December 21, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler is recalling certain 2000-2003 Dodge Dakota and Durango 4WD models because the front upper ball joints may wear out prematurely. Water intrusion can cause rust to develop, which will accelerate wear and cause a clunking noise in the front suspension, which may or may not be heard by the vehicle occupants. Excessive wear may allow the ball joint to separate, which could result in loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace both front upper ball joints to correct this issue.

Body, Interior & Misc., June 18, 2001

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler is recalling certain 1997-2000 Dodge Dakota, 1998-2000 Dodge Durango, and 1997-2001 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because sound deadening material inside the steering wheel may become dislodged and interfere with the clock spring ribbon, which can cause an open electrical circuit. An open circuit in the clock spring will illuminate the air bag warning light and disable the air bag system. With the air bag system disabled, there is an increased chance of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clock spring to correct this concern.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles may not have adequate clearance between the left front brake tube and the power steering hose, which can cause the brake tube to wear and a brake fluid leak. Loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the brake tube and power steering hose for wear and replace them if necessary. A power steering bracket will be installed to insure adequate clearance between the brake pipe and power steering hose.
