1997 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

This is my first vehicle and am approaching 190,000 miles with relatively trouble free use. Only problems so far have been the water pump giving out, dirty sensors, and the power steering pump also giving out due to an accident early in the truck's life. Other than that it has been trouble free. I absolutely love the truck and will buy another when this one gives out except I would opt for the 318 V8 as the 3.9L V6 is gutless.

Favorite Features

Exterior design, the whole interior, Infinity sound system, everything. The perfect truck. The 4WD is especially fun in snow.

Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy. Come on I have a V6 and I get just 16 mpg? I drive decent too, no full throttle blasts. The truck also needs better cupholders as I have spilled a few drinks by just taking a turn a little faster than normal.
