2000 Dodge Dakota SLT Plus 4dr Crew Cab SB


Review

The 2000 Dakota Quad Cab with hard shell topper was just what I wanted. It handles well in all sorts of weather. The 4.7 ltr. engine has plenty of power and get up. Only gets about 15-16 mpg in town and may 18 highway. I put a duel exhaust system on her which boosted power a bit and gives it that big truck sound. I'll certainly buy another Dakota in a few years


Favorite Features

Handling, durability, plenty of power


Suggested Improvements

Engine modifications for better fuel mileage without losing power

Review

My model of the Dakota has constantly made a grinding sound at high speeds when moving towards the left. Also, it occasionly pulls to the right. The car is pretty nice but mostly the only thing wrong is the gas mileage that it trails. it is horrible. A semi gets better. It doesn't have much horsepower but it does the job. Also, I tried pulling out a tree with small roots and the car had trouble. I believe that my 95 Isuzu Trooper would have been more competent for the task.


Favorite Features

The AC, radio, dashboard, external design and comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Lighten the load of the engine making it more effective in the city because that is really what people would buy one for.

Review

Great vehicle overall. Used mostly for trips to the local Home Depot but can still comfortably seat 4 for family trips. Plus package with 4.7 V8 and wide tires makes for plenty of acceleration and good handling. Fun to drive, quick and sure-footed.


Favorite Features

I routinely load up the bed and the truck barely notices the extra weight. Quick off the line and good exhaust note.


Suggested Improvements

Replaced warped front rotors twice before installing aftermarket Brembo discs. May be a design flaw or under-engineered. Otherwise no issues.

Review

Wanted a crew cab style truck. Looked at all of them and settled on the Dodge Dakota. It came with all the bells & whistles that I wanted. I've been very happy with its versitility. I can lig just about anything. The vehicle runs great with that big 4.7 V8 in it. Fuel economy could be better as I'm getting about 16 mpg other wise I'm happy


Favorite Features

Big rear seating, compass and digital displays, excellent handling and high visibility.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy needs improvement. Should be up around 20 in town/ 24 highway
