Solid truck great value

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

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!

I have owned my truck for 5 years. It is comfortable and fun to drive. It looks nice and the paint job is very good.

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 confidence. I have had very few repairs. My original brakes lasted 72,000 miles. I love this truck!

One problem after another, and it is not even paid for yet. Ball joints, drive train, a/c, shocks--all problems- -




Made the right decision!

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.
