Nine years ago, I bought a new 1994
Dakota SLT Extended Cab with the 3.9L
V6 engine, auto transmission, power
windows locks and mirrors. The truck
has never failed me during cold winters
(Chicago)and scorching summers---except
once when I let the battery run out. No
major problems ever, just minor
irritants: radio ground wire
disconnected, transmission sometimes
starts only in neutral, and the gas
gauge sensor quit after 7 years. I
recommend the Dakota highly.
