Pain to Maintain

ReviewTypical American truck. You will spend many hours and many dollars at the garage having maintenance done. Fuel economy, as expected with a V8 is horrible. Engine starts knocking around 60000 miles; I suggest using premium gas for best results. V8 has good get up and go. My Dakota has a severe tire wear problem; it is not related to front-end alignments (or lack there of). Dakota doesn't hold up very well in a car wreck. I rear-ended a dinky Toyota Corolla and it cost $2700 to repair my vehicle.
Best FeaturesExterior design surpassess Ford and Chevy. Interior is plain but very comfortable.
Worst FeaturesDodge's philosophy has been in recent years that bigger is better. Not so in this case. I prefer more reliability. A third door would also be nice for the extended cab models.
