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
the full bench seat in the back and storage bins underneath are great runs great on the highway and around town big enough for me the wife and our newborn with enough room inside to still put groceries inside
could get better gas mileage i only get 16 mpg on the hwy and thats it i must say it is a great truck i plan on keeping this truck for a long time to come and would suggest to anybody looking at one to buy it
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!
The car-like interior and gentleness of the truck! Beautiful truck
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.
Looks, performance and sturdy body. A
pleasure to drive.
Make airbag control accessible - dash
must be completely removed for access.
Dump those plastic headlights.
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.
