1991 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I am the second owner of this vehicle, but it has been in the family since new. The truck was lightly driven for the first 13 years, and then I've put on more regular miles (approx. 15k a year) since 2004. This truck is a rock and maintenance wise fairly inexpensive to own. The major work I've had done on it since I've owned it is a new drive shaft, new transfer case, and a new power control module.


Favorite Features

The AC blows frigid for a 18 year old truck and the reliability of Dodge's bulletproof 318ci (5.2l) V8 has been a blessing. The truck is excellent for towing as well.


Suggested Improvements

The gas mileage is terrible, and I've been averaging 10-12 mpg. If you do all highway driving, you may be able to get 15. At 3.91 gear ratio, it would probably be better suited for a 3.23 ratio to improve mileage.

1991 Dodge Dakota 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

I have had the vehicle 5 months now, 5- speed very nice, overall seems reliable. No rust, a plus for a 12 year old vehicle in the St. Louis area.


Favorite Features

5-speed, V-6, AC (my old Ford truck was without).


Suggested Improvements

sending units for the oil pressure and gas gauge are bad. Oil pressure one fixed, I'm not messing with the gas gauge one till the pump dies.
