i own a 96 dakota club cab slt with 3.9l
v6 auto 90k miles.reliability is its
biggest shortcomming.the transmission
went out at 30k fixed under warenty,and
has never really shifted smoothly.other
problems include the a.c.,water pump
leak,plenium gasket leak, alternator,
dash lights,fuel gage. the v6 feels
underpowered i would recommend the v8.
on the plus side it is larger then it
competitors, and averages a respectable
16mpg in mixed driving.
size,engine options,it has respectable
payload and towing capabilities.and i
love the looks of the pre mini ram
clones.it looks like a truck.
reliability.the interior was very
outdated,and used cheap materials.
