Some of the vehicles included in this recall were recalled under safety recall 14V-354, and that addresses vehicles sold, or currently registered, in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Warranty

The Raider is covered by a five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, which Edmunds calls "Best-in-Class." By comparison, platform-mate Dodge Dakota offers a three-year/36,000-mile warranty, prompting the reviewer to advise, "If coverage is important to you, Raider is the way to go." Raider buyers also get a ten-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, five-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance and a seven-year/100,000-mile rust warranty.

Reviewers speak highly of the Raider's reliability outlook. Based on the Dakota's good record, MarketWatch concludes: "There's a lot to like here -- styling, highway cruising, and the promise of long-term durability. Veteran readers might remember we put well over 100K on our 2000 Dakota with no major problems." Of a long-term test Raider, Four Wheeler similarly notes, "We haven't had any problems to report and since we haven't quite gotten enough mileage for the first 7,500-mile service, we haven't visited the dealership yet." Another plus is that IntelliChoice lists the Raider as a "Best in Class" winner for Lowest Repair Costs.
