Dodge Dakota R/T

2000 Dodge Dakota R/T Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB
Dodge far and away builds the poorest
vehicle I have ever owned. This truck
not only depreciates the fastest of
any American vehicle but the milage
rating was overstated by almost twice
what it got. Also when the dealership
was questioned about the poor milage
and the engine miss I was told "yes I
can hear it but Dodge won't authorize
us to fix it" For having as large of
an engine as it did it was not fast.
For a 2000 the idea that Dodge uses
the same undercarrige as a 1970 car
pretty much tell the story on the
funding they put into research and
development. Never will I look at a
Dodge\Chrysler vehicle again.
The one redeiming feature was the
color, Intense Blue.
four doors on the extended cab, seats
that would allow the driver to set for
more than 20/25 min. An engine that
would make decent horsepower/torque
300/300 and still get decent milage
17/23 mpg city/hiway. Suspension from
this era, drum brakes and stamped
steel A-arms NAH!
