I've owned my Dakota for five years now. Bought it with 26000 miles, now has 64000. Only thing I have replaced has been the battery. Haven't replaced a single other thing. Not a u joint, ball joint, brake pad, muffler, anything! Here's the best part. I also plow my snow with it up here in Michigan's upper peninsula. We get around 250" of the white stuff every winter so I use it a lot. I have a Blizzard 720LT plow for it and it pushes all the snow you'd ever want. People think that using your truck to plow snow is too hard on them, but not my Dakota. I know many guys with Fords and Chevys who plow and they're always getting something fixed. They quality of this truck has been superb!

Happiness is passing everything on the
road in your Dodge Dakota! The Dakota
is great on the road and in the city,
and by adding a hard Tonneau cover, I
increased the gas mileage by 2 mpg. Off
road, I've had this truck in some rough
terrain in the Rocky Mountains,
southern Utah, and the southwest; and
in all applications it has taken me
where I wanted to go with complete
I have had very few repairs. My
original brakes lasted 72,000 miles.
I love this truck!

I have owned Chevy and Ford trucks in
the past, and I must say I am very
impressed with the Dakota. It rides
great for a truck and is very quick for
a 4X4. It's also very quiet on the
road. Wish it had doors for the back
seat. Kids fit fine, it's just a hassle
to get them in and out. Suspension &
brakes like to squeak.
Solar Yellow paint is now available for the 1999 Dodge Dakota. Other un-pickuplike refinements include an express down feature for the driver window, extra storage space for cassettes or CDs, and remote radio controls on the steering wheel.
