2003 Dodge Dakota Review
"Dodge's ""compact"" pickup truck loses its 4-cyl engine for 2003, but gains a new transmission, available 4-wheel disc brakes, and larger standard tires. Dakota is bigger than other compact pickups but not quite a full-size. It offers a 3-passenger regular cab, a 6-passenger 2-dr extended Club Cab, and a 6-passenger 4-dr crew cab Quad Cab. Regular and Club Cab have a 6.5-ft cargo bed, the Quad Cab a 5.3-ft box. Available engines are a 3.9-liter V6, 4.7 V8, and 5.9 V8. The 3.9 comes with manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The 4.7 is available with manual or--new for '03--a 5-speed automatic. The 5.9 comes only with a 4-speed automatic. Dakota is available with rear-wheel drive, 4WD that must be disengaged on dry pavement, or 4WD that can be left engaged on dry pavement; 4x4s include low-range gearing. Dakotas come with rear-wheel ABS; 4-wheel ABS is optional. Four-wheel disc brakes are newly standard on all models except the 2WD regular cab, on which they replace a disc/drum setup as part of selected options packages. Also for '03, 16-inch wheels are standard in place of 15s on all models except the R/T, which uses 17s. Rear seats gain LATCH system child-seat anchors, and added midyear was a Stampede package that includes the Tire and Handling Group plus body-color bumpers and lower-body trim."
Warranty Information
Basic: 3 Years/36,000 Miles
Recalls Issued
US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID 03V389
Number of Units Affected 50,082
Summary On certain pickup trucks equipped with manual transmissions, the headlamp and dash wiring harness may be chafed by the actuation of the clutch pedal. This could result in abnormal operation of the wipers, turn signals, horn, or lighting systems. This could affect driver visibility, could prevent a driver from sounding a warning by using the horn, and, when the turn signals are inoperative, the driver cannot use them to signal intent to turn, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy Dealers will reroute the wire harness and repair the harness if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on November 3, 2003. Owners may contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997.
Dates of Manufacture July 2000 - July 2003
