First of all, let me say, this is my second Dodge Dakota. And I have enjoyed this one just as much as my first. Second, to anyone who wants a truck that will always outperform not only the competition but your own expectations, this one is for you! My Dakota has exceptional ride and handling, especially for a truck with a short wheel base. The interior is comfortable with more leg and head room than other compact trucks, and me being 6' 2" that means alot. Also, I can certainly vouch for the reliability having put 142,000 combined miles on both my trucks. The only repair I've had was replacing a blower for the a/c once. However, the best feature of all... horsepower lots and lots of it!!
5.9 litres of v8 in 3700 pounds of truck. a responsive shifter and a clutch that is responsive and comfortable, not numb and lifeless. The lumbar support is nice as well.
The only flaw I can think of is where the cup holders are. They're right behind the shift knob so if your drink is too tall 2nd gear will knock it in the floorboards
You here people saying never drive in
the rain. MAinly because they cant keep
there foot out of it. This truck flies
when the road is dry. What can u expect
with a 4200 pound truck thats rear
wheel drive and has most of its wieght
in the front(large engine). The body
style is supior to all other pickups in
Blowing by sports cars!! Hints:large
engine that just blast past people.
A blast to drive when roads are mostly
Bigger tires. Better Traction more
wieght in back. And possibly a magnum
360 with more power. (or supercharger)
