1993 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

By far, very little will compare with my truck. Its got 177,000 of hard miles and its still going strong. Brakes last forever, same clutch. Other than a water pump, radiator and a belt, it all still original. Ironically, the biggest flaw I found with the truck is the gas gauge went at 95,000 miles and I have to use the trip odometer to know when to get gas (the gas light still works).


Best Features

Reliable...get it with the 5 speed ..its actually fun to drive.


Worst Features

gas gauge started to rot after 14 years

1993 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

My vehicle has many miles and has gotten me through some deep mud. I live on a farm and I always have to drive through the mud. Even though I don't have four wheel drive it manages well in the mud and snow with sand bags in the back. She runs excellent.


Best Features

My favorite feature would have to be my very loud custom exhaust I have in my truck.


Worst Features

Wire diagrams would be nice.

1993 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

Solid, no hassle truck, and it still gets 18 MPG with 151k+ miles. Rock soild, super reliable, mid sized truck. To give an idea of how reliable it is, I've owned it since it was new, and the first repair was at 90,000 miles (serpentine belt broke) I get 50-60k miles out of front brakes, and changed the rear at 125k. Total mechanical repairs over 12 years, radiator, thermostat, wheel cylinders, and one caliper. Still driven daily


Best Features

Simplicity and reliability


Worst Features

Gas gauge stopped working at 115k. Tough on tires (most trucks are) slightly more hauling capacity in the same size truck
