1995 Dodge Dakota Extended Cab Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

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


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

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!


Favorite Features

The car-like interior and gentleness of the truck! Beautiful truck


Suggested Improvements

Tire-radius, and needs more speed.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Looks, performance and sturdy body. A pleasure to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Make airbag control accessible - dash must be completely removed for access. Dump those plastic headlights.

for me this has been and continues to be an excellent vehicle. The interior room is great, and it has performed with only minimal maintenance. It would recommend it without reservation

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The motor and outside style.


Suggested Improvements

Interior design.

Review

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 it.


Favorite Features

Towing/load capability, comfort of bucket seats, lots of headroom, large cup holder in console.
