2000 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I've had a Dakota for a few years now and what seemed to be a good vehicle has turned into a dog. Even with regular oil changes it seems this truck will drop it's oil pressure for no reason. A quick search on the web tells me I am not the only one this has happened to. The 3.9L engine is a sludge factory. Now, we all don't have the ability or oppurtunity to pull over when something like an unexpected drop (to 0) in oil pressure occures, so just imagine the amount of engine damage that can occur. Isn't it a lovely sound to hear my engine knock. Not only would I avoid Dodge but any Diamler/Chrysler product.


Favorite Features

Cabin space. Can fit a family of four comfortably.


Suggested Improvements

Build a better engine.

Review

I love this truck. It's comfortable. It's also the most aggressive looking midsized/mini truck out there. I love it.


Favorite Features

The exhaust, makes it sound almost as aggressive as an 8 (if you have the 3.9)

Review

This is a great truck to drive. It has the power and the looks. I drove several trucks before buying the Dakota, and I couldn't beat the room. For the same price as a compact truck why not buy the midsize Dakota. You wouldn't be sorry.


Favorite Features

The room in the cab. The feel behind the wheel.


Suggested Improvements

Better braking system.
