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!

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...
