1999 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Bought new in '99, this truck has been great to me so far. It gets up to 26 mpg on the hiway and yet hauls anything I put in the back. I'm easy on vehicles and at 118K I'm still using the original brakes and am on the second set of tires. I went this year to buy another and discovered Dodge doesnt make the 4 cyl in the Dakota anymore. Such a shame! I just have to baby this one some more!


Best Features

The economy, great radio system. The storage under the back seat. The styling is among the best on the road. The low profile is nice too.


Worst Features

The paint is thin and has lots of spots. The front doorpost is way too thick. Soundproofing could be improved. More tiedowns in back. The throw of the tranny stick could have been smaller.

Review

You gotta get the bed liner and bed cover. This is a sharp looking truck. Looks just like the Dodge Ram but smaller.


Best Features

The ride and feel of a big truck without the big truck price.


Worst Features

None.

Review

This truck is great when it is running, unfortuntly, that is not too often. With less then 20k it needed a steering rack. About 30 k came the 1st set of rotors,at 81k now it's on it's 3rd set. water pump and catalytic coverter have also had to be replaced.I now have an ABS and brake light lit up indicating ABS failure and have found out the toque converter in the transmission is bad. This truck is less then 5 years old and has 81000 miles. too many problems for a vehical of this age...

DON"T BUY A CHRYSLER PRODUCT
