Thank You, Mr. Lee Iacocca

1999 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
Review
OK, so Iacocca hasn't been CEO of Chrysler in a while, but he changed their mindset. The result is the Dakota. Works like a mid-size pickup should; drives/handles like a large car. I am happy with it. Toyota was overpriced; Fords too small in the mid- sized pickup market. Sturdy. Fine utility/tow vehicle. Reminds me of my first pickup love; a 1986 Ford Ranger XLT 4WD, but with out the accompanying 1986 Ranger transmission problem.
Favorite Features
Comfortable on long trips; gas mileage as you would expect. Advertised is 13- 16mpg; I get 12.5 to 17 with the V-8 tow package. Paint and interior holding well. Plenty of front seat room.
Suggested Improvements
Electrical system needs re- engineering. Panel light brightness adjustment gets too hot to touch. Battery has failed 2x in 36 months with no prior indication of a problem on the ampmeter. Was a bit light in the rear until I put a shell on the back.
