1997 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab SB


After my initial purchase and subsequent visits to the dealer for various quality control problems, the truck worked very well for three years. Shortly after this a series of problems has made me question my purchase of a Chrysler product. Three sets fo brakes in less than 75,000 miles, various electrical gremlins, suspension problems, and cracked exhaust studs have jaded my initial opinion of the vehicle. The recent condition of peeling paint has made me consider selling the vehicle and purchasing one of foriegn manufacture.

Best Features

The interior design of the truck is very user friendly and extreemly quiet while on the highway.

Worst Features

Better quality paint, more robust front suspension and brakes, and better attention to detail.
