My dad bought the 90 dakota back in 1998. Just recently in 09 did the truck become undrivable due to a electrical fire under the hood. Up until then the entire family used this truck. It always was ready to go. The paint did fade and peel requiring a new paint job. Other than that the truck was very durable. It oulasted alot of other vehicles the family has had over the years. I would recommend this truck to anyone.

I have had some good and bad experinces with this lemon. I know with a used truck you are going to have problems, but come on. When I first got it it had an oil leak. Then it had a coolent leak. Now it has a gas leak. What else is going to leak on this thing? When I set my cruise control it will rev itself up going downhill. I can see it doing that going up hill, but down? A month ago the headlights went out while I was going to school. I was at a Chrysler place and when I showed them my truck the guy said, and I quote, "You have a Dakota, it will last forever". Well, if it will last forever, mine is about to die.The transmission gets happy when you first start going in the morning. I would not recommend this truck to anyone.

I am a sixteen year old and this is my first car. My father bought it for me when I was fifteen. That was my birthday gift from him and my mother. Ever since we had the truck I have had a lot of fun. The only thing I dislike about the truck is the color. It is blue and silver with double red stripes going down the side, and the chrome on the mirrors, bumbers and front end is showing its age.

I have owned this 2WD truck for 8
years. It has outlasted two of my
wife's Grand Caravan. Every morning
Iturn the key, put it in gear, and go
to work. Except when I fill it with
hundreds of pounds of Scout gear and 2-
4 Boy Scouts. I am not easy on this
truck, but I change the oil, keep it
lubed, and wash it 2-3 times a month.
The only rust on it is both doors have
surface rust, 1/2" x 6" along the
bottom, and one rear fender lip where
the previous owner bumped a tree. I
have 3 boys all 6' or more. It is
tight, but we can still squeeze in to

This truck is a top quality truck.
It's not quite a compact truck and not
quite a full size truck, therefore
it's a mid-size. It can haul more
than my friends 1998 Ford F-150 and
it's more reliable. The only bad
thing about it is it's transmission.
It's transmission went around 74,000
miles and now i have 80,000 miles on
it. I would recommend this truck
because it's fun and reliable.
Big news is the addition of an extended-cab model. Base, SE, LE, and Sport versions of new Club Cab are available. Shelby model dropped from lineup, while convertible availability expands to base trim.
