2003 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

Gas caps are defective on Dodge Dakota's 2003 series...this causes computer to fire an error that their is a leak in the pollution system..take to dealers and they charge 90 dollars to reset and then tell you gas cap is all right and if it does it again bring it back...again at a 90 dollar charge. On the internet I was able to discover thousands of people having exactly the same bad gas caps......then I wrote the manufacturer and back and forth on 3 replies..each time they simply tell me go to a dealer...apparently they do not even properly read E mails they receive...these are available if needed! the pollution control system is major on the newer vehicles, and certainly a known continuous failure of faulty gas caps effects the entire system and is a high cost item for the consumer to try working over and over with the dealers..when the manufacture is or must be aware of the defective gas cap failures.
