I purchased this truck new from dealer with 1.5 miles on it for $19,000.00 Cash. My Dodge is dependable. I crashed it pretty bad once and had the dealer fix it ($6000 for repairs). After 10 years it still drives like a new truck & has NEVER stuck me anywhere. I have owned A 75 Ford Courier, A 90 Mazda B2200 and this Dodge. The 1975 Ford was the best. The 2000 Dodge is second best. The 1990 Mazda was the worst. I have kept up the tune up's and oil changes and have never had a problem with it yet. The interior is a bit cheap with plastic parts(I broke the plastic Parking Brake Release Handle & Cup holder). Other than that I am very happy with the truck.
Extra Long Bed, Extra room behind the front seat.
Reposition the tie down points in the bed. Add tie down points in the bed. Invent a locking system for the tailgate. The tailgate can be stolen too easy.
Even after I said I would never buy an
american made veichle I was forced to
after the terrible high resale value
of a Toyota. I got the truck and have
been very impressed with everything
but the value. I got the truck just
over a year ago for 14,500 and now i
am begging someone to take on trade if
for 8000.00. This is why I'll never
buy american again.
Up to this point, I have had only
positive experiences with my 2000 Dodge
Dakota. The Magnum V6 engine in
conjunction with the handling package
and wide tires has had plenty of power
for hauling anything in the bed of the
truck. I have had no warranty issues
outside of getting the windshield
wipers replaced. I look forward to
continued performance from this vehicle.
The handling package with the 3.55
differential. 4-speed shifts cleanly
and the ride is smooth and comfortable.
Usability of the instrument panels are
not robust. Instruments move around in
their assembled configurations. This
makes the inside seem cheap.
