2001 Dakota SLT 4x4, This truck has been virtually problem free since purchased. Truck just feels solid, you can tell the difference. I added rear springs for towing a camper and now it no longer jumps out of control on large bumps at fast speeds, made a big difference, the factory should have done this. I have the 4.7 engine, which sounds like the harley of trucks.

My vehicle has been in the shop 7 times since I bought it. It will be going back shortly. The ABS isn't working properly. This is the second time something has been wrong with the brakes. The dash board has been rattling since 17000 miles. That will need to be fixed too. My MPG hovers around 13MPG on the HIGHWAY! Needless to say, I am more than disappointed in the DODGE product and will be going back to foreign manufacturers.

01 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab SLT

Review

Reliable,fun to drive work horse. The V6 has enough power and the cab is quiet when cruising at highway speeds. The Infinity AM/FM/CD System rocks and the seats are comfortable. The black interior is high maintenance though, as it shows everything from cracker crumbs to dog hair. The instrument panel,heater/ac/fan/wiper/headlight switch(s)/controls are large enough without seeming bulky or awkward. Interior appointments are nice, although the glove box is a little on the small side, the center console is rommy. The standard Goodyear Wrangler ST tires are a little small(215/75/15) but it still handles well and gives a smooth ride.

The Dakota has the best sound system offered in any stock truck. I promise you will not complain about leg room (I am 6'-5" & will vouch for this). The 4.7L engine is the only way to go. Avoid the 5.9L V8. I got 11 mpg average honest. The truck handles like a sports car, you will love to drive this machine. Those needing 4X4, look for models with AWD (there are some out there and they have jeep parts; note reg. 4X4 can't be driven on dry pavement). Best truck money can buy!

A great compromise between fullsize and compact trucks. Can tow 6,600 pounds which is more than enough for most people. Gets fairly good gas mileage for a V-8 which is very powerful. I can't say enough about mine!

Truck has 25000 miles on it and been in the shop 3 times. Power steering pump failed 1 time, driving lights the next. Loud suspension noise the next time which was all the bushings...not uncommon from what I hear. Still didnt fix the problem...still loud and loose. Very sloppy and rough steering, rock hard seats and poor visibility out the windshield, transmission hesistates to shift. Not impressed for $29000!!

5.9 has the power

I have the 5.9 and get around 12mpg most of the time. Sometimes 14 or so with highway driving but is worth it if you tow. Its also nice knowing I can accelerate faster than any other truck out there (except 5.9RT, but who wants 2WD).

Now, THIS is a truck!

Review

I have owned a 93 F150 and a 97 Toyota Tundra and this Dodge whoops em' both! The Ford was a great truck, but it was too large and ate too much gas. The Dakota is the perfect in-between size and gets decent mileage for a 4.7 V8 with 235 horses. The Toyota was an overpriced joke. Underpowered and it felt like it was going to fall apart whenever I went over a railroad track. The Dakota is extremely solid on the road and handles exceptionally well for a truck. I love the smooth howl of the 4.7 V8, the great stereo and comfy interior. I'll let you know when I find something I don't like about it, but don't hold your breathe.
