1997 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

I purchased this truck at 106,500 miles and it now has a little over 126,000. At first I loved the smooth transition of the transmission switching gears, but at 123,675 the transmission started to slip and the 5.2 liter v8 started to knock, and for everyone that put this truck in the shop it wasn't worth it. I don't plan to spend anything on this truck unless it is gas or regular maintenance. These trucks are only worth 5,000 and if you put it in the shop you will spend a lot more than its worth.

Favorite Features

Great gas mileage. Iím getting 18 to a gallon or better and roughly 370 to a tank on a V8. The torque to get off the line with a fully loaded ATV trailer

Suggested Improvements

Stronger transmission that can handle the torque. Quieter engine. Sound system
