1996 Dodge Dakota Extended Cab Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Bought my Dakota new in 1996, has 140,000 on it and still going strong. Uses no oil to speak of and has not given me any problems other then the poor quality interior. Comfort is great considering I'm 6'6". Gas milage could be better, could use a split heat defrost option. Exterior is holding up to Maine winter very well considering the truck was purchased in Arizona. Does very well in the snow for a 2wd, I use a 70 lb sand bag in the bed and good all season tires, so far no problems. Probably the best vehicle I have ever owned.


Favorite Features

Comfort, ride and good arrangement of dash and controls.


Suggested Improvements

Interior is falling apart, plastic breaks around screws and trim is cracking and breaking. Dash lights and speedometer short out after about 200 miles of continues travel. Add a split heat/defrost option.
