2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4dr Quad Cab Sport 4WD (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Excellent lil truck, the 5.9 is fun and can tow anything provided you can afford to feed it. I have the AWD version so it's a little harder to find parts.


Best Features

Definitely the engine.


Worst Features

The annoying squeak of the suspension is horrid. I hate the front suspension, it should have coils under it.

Review

I bought my truck (4.7 2wd quad) new November 2000. I get 24 highway and 18 mixed driving. I have a camper shell on it so maybe that helps with the better mileage as compared to other postings. Over these 9+ years I have had one window motor, Oxygen sensor, air- bag sensor go out, about $900 dollars total from the dealer. No other problems with the truck so far.


Best Features

Size, styling, power, comfort.


Worst Features

A slightly larger more comfortable back seat.

Review

over all this has been a very dependable trk. other than recalls, had a problem with front leather seat that cracked at 36000 mi. that dealer wouldn't take care of. still looks good and drives great. have AWD plus 4wd in Midwest and never been stuck. gas mileage runs around 15-16 could be better.


Best Features

wide rear doors, over all appearance.


Worst Features

grease fittings, fender well mud flaps, so water, sand, and other debris stays out of engine compartment.

Review

I just got rid of my 5.7 04 Tahoe which was slower than a slug. I am so impressed by my 4.7 in the pickup that I added a cat back dual exhaust to help it breath. This truck flies and handles great. I do a lot of highway driving and noticed over 15 mpg. I will add a cold air box to see if I can improve this. The interior is comfortable to me. I have wanted one of these for years and am so delighted I bought it. The rear drive window did not work but the dealer fixed it. I noticed the pass door window not working at times, seems to be a very common problem on these trucks.


Best Features

A mighty V-8 and 4 doors to fit 5 people in.


Worst Features

Besides fuel economy,automatic headlights would have been nice...
