i bought my 95 sport extd cab with 219,xxx on it from a good friend of mine who had owned it for 8 years and for its age and miles it is a great truck i have had it for 2 1/2 months and have put 5,000 on her so far and the only problem i have had is the master cylinder just went out oh well it cost me $50 to replace since i have had the truck it has not let me down the 3.9 has pulled everything i have put in it and behind it on my 14 ft double axle trailer has good power and rides pretty good for a small truck although i plan on beefing up the suspension and putting some bigger tires on the 215/75/15 ain't good enough for me

My dad first owned the 3.9L V6 Dakota Sport and we went on family vacations and he used it for business. My mom also drove it around to and from work (errands too) for years. The Dodge has been through a lot of travels!! It now has 205,000 miles on it and is running wonderful!! Only normal fixes had to be done. Great truck. Now I own the truck and enjoy it a lot!

Bought this truck used (97,000)- it
was used by commercial plumber, and
saw heavy use. I like the performance
and gneral feel. However, there is
water in the oil, and it's so bad that
the dipstick is rusting away - no
joke. The engine is very noisy, and I
had to replace the headliner when it
fell down. Very solid body. Airbag
Control causes radio AM to not work.

This truck was very reliable and the
torque in the motor made it fun to
drive. Currently have 238000 miles.
Just purchased a 2003 quad cab. The 3.9
liter is not as torquey do to the added
weight and larger tires. The 16 inch
tires cause the motor to 250-350 less
rpm and the sweet spot in 4th gear is
around 75 mph.

Purchased this truck for daily
transportation and towing travel
trailer. Added aftermarket ignition
and exhaust to improve performance with
good results. Only serious problem was
a water leak into cab that took 7-8
visits to dealer to finally fix. Heavy
duty suspension and towing package well
worth the $$ . Extremely pleased with
Doug, it's great to hear that you are so happy with your new Dakota truck. Congratulations, and the best of luck. Thanks also for your kind comments regarding the forum and the people involved. Althou...
CB, I think that you and your wife made a good choice (especially since your wife persisted) in that you bought a Dakota. I love mine (2000 Quad) and it is my second Dakota (1995) and i have been very...
