1995 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab SB

Review

Bought used off eBay great price, sight unseen. When picked-up instrument cluster was dead - no speedo, but had cruise. Drove that way from MA to PA & commuted from PHL to BFO for month. Cluster replaced from junkyard - $35. Tot. miles unknown. I've added 50K+. Orig. from NH. Radiator disintegrated last summer. Brakelines rusted out. V-6 w/5spd = outstanding. Uses daily commute, home improvement projects, towing cars and trailers, etc. Heavy, rough use. Great ride. Rear wheelwells, bottom of doors rusting through. AC compressor replaced from eBay. Headliner has now fallen down. Get 19 mpg commuting, 21 mpg w/ popup on highway, 23 mpg w/o trailer w/ tonneau on highway.

Favorite Features

Great seats & interior features. Outstanding Chrysler engineering. Good sound system. Tight handling. It's a truck not a truck wannabe. Driven PHL to RFD twice with springs maxed out & towing a trailer. Never a complaint & got 22 mpg besides. Looking for low mileage 1996 replacement.

Suggested Improvements

Interior accoutrements could be a little more robust. Headliner, window cranks, glove box latch, door lock button. Better rustproofing on underside and especially the bed. More tiedowns in bed. More easily replaceable fuel filter.
