1999 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


My Dakota was a good purchase, the truck has been very reliable and far exceeds the quality of my previous Blazer ZR2, the truck has required maintainence and repairs, as any vehicle will, nothing major or out of the ordinary, trucks power with the 318 is very good, turning radius is exceptional which makes for easy parking, the interior build quality is very good and pleasing to the eye, far better than any GM product(my opinoin, not a fact) the transfer case engauges flawlessly and instantly everytime as compaired to electric shift systems, mileage is good in my opinion, if you want awesome mileage you shouldnt be looking for a truck, i will surely buy a Dodge for my next vehicle.

Favorite Features

Really like the looks, the 318 is very reliable and provides excellent power in a truck weighing less than 5k pounds, Truck really is a joy to drive in any weather, the overhead console with trip computer is great, nearing 10y.o and still a great looking, really disappointed the 318 is gone for 2000

Suggested Improvements

The factory Infinity speakers in the doors dont hold up really well, Magnum intake pan gasket goes bad and causes spark knock, replace with MOPAR gaskets only(pan gasket is updated to a steal gasket), antispin differentail should be more common, heater weak from factory, replacement core is thicker
