Question about 1994 Dodge Dakota Club Cab

Paint peeling on Dodge Dakota truck

The paint is peeling off in sheets from the roof of the cab on my dodge Dakota truck. In all other respect this vehicle is in very good condition. It is the 1994 model. Dodge dealers acknowlodege that they had a problem with this model year but are not willing to assist in rectifying it.. Is there a hidden factory warranty available for this problem.

    1. I have the same paint peeling problem, It started on the hood of the truck and has continued to lift off the truck in other areas. After taking to a dealership paint shop employee, he said that it was basically certain colors that the problem occurred on. The most reported being blue.

    I had the same problem with my 1993 dakota, blue in colour. I went to the manager, and he said they would put me on a waiting list. About 4 months later they called, I took it in and they bare metal sanded it and repainted. Paint is holding up great. Been 5 years now.

Yes there is only if your origional owner past that its responisbility of new owner to have painted over its in the sales contract that you received if you are origional owner of vehicle this is a paint defect that dodge has to handle and if service guys wont handle it go to the top man in the building and i mean the top man in charge he will do whats right for you
service only tells you what you want to hear
vehicle history will show if they fixed the problem once before if this is the case this will be a little harder to convince
and if dealer doesnt help file complaint with attorney general then i know the dealer ship will have to cooperate

What is an inexpensive way to paint my roof at home on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 and still look somewhat good

Mask everything off and on a windless day use some spray paints to do the deed. Also have a ladder or step stool so you can reach all areas properly and maintain the same distance from sprayer to roof at all times.

Always keep the can moving when you are spraying so that you do not put the paint on unevenly. Or like one of my friends did, got some real good quality paint and an expensive roller and ........
Came out real good. Could swear that paint was baked on.

Approximately how much would it cost to get a new paint job? My paint is peeling.

Depends where you go.

Generally $1500 - 2000, but shop around, as prices vary a lot.
You can call dealerships, name brand national paint shops like MAACO, or little independent autobody shops.

I've got a stratus myself, and the qoutes I've gotten in my area have been in this area. You've just gotta make the phone calls and see what prices you get in your area.

A word of advice though, do not have anyone paint your car before you see some other work they've done, or you hear from other people that they do superb work. Do not just have them do the job based on lowest price or you will regret it.

Peeling paint on Dodge 93 Caravan

The paint is not covered under any warranty. Especially for anything over 15 years old. Even if you purchased a warranty extension through US Fedelis or equivelant, It is still not covered.
It will probably cost about $2000 to have it repainted. You can always call around for cheaper prices.

1998 F 150 regular cab paint peeling problems

Ford will not assist on a 1998 vehicle because of the age.
You can primer and spot paint but it would probably do better if you sanded it down first.

Brake fluid leaking from the bottom of the driver side on a dodge dakota 97

master cylinder maybe or the brake lines going to the back of the truck, but most likely the master cylinder, check to see if you see any brake fluid on the front of the brake booster or any paint peeling off the brake booster
