I have never driven a 5 speed standard 318 before this truck. I have to say its got some jam. And the throttle response is great. The body has great flowing lines that are arrow dynamic, unlike the new Dakotas that seem square. If i ever decide to buy another truck, it is gonna be a Dakota.
Comes nicely equipped with all the options i need. 5 spd stick, 5.2 ltr. Trl towing package with trans temp. Well what can i say its fully loaded.
Not sure what the dealer was thinking for a clutch, but I've found the pedal if not moved in a smooth motion, the truck likes to jerk back and forth, till u try again. Hydraulics? Better fuel economy would be nice as its only a mid sized truck.
