Best Quad Available on Market
By hotsaucnmyburito on 06/28/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2001 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport 2WD (3.9L 6cyl 5M)

Review

When we test drove all quads, the Dodge Dakota Sport was by far the roomiest in the back for passengers, the most comfortable ride, the most powerful and reliable truck on the market with the most bang for your buck. In the 2 years we have had this truck, we absolutely love it. We towed a few times and had no problems. The bed was used MANY times for large and small items. We moved about 4 times in the past 2 years and have had excellent results from it.

my dakota now has 63000 miles on it and I've had no major troubles at all. The 4.7 engine has tons of get-up & go& avg. fuel economy is aprox. 17- 18mpg. Plenty of room for at least 5 adults.

Review

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.

Review

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.

Review

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!

01 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab SLT
By KCKettridge on 03/06/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2001 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport 2WD (3.9L 6cyl 5M)

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.

Dakota Sport extended cab with AWD

Vehicle

2001 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab 4WD (3.9L 6cyl 5M)

Review

The all wheel drive feature of this truck works wonderfully in the snow. The 4.7 L engine really gets this truck moving in a hurry.

2001 Dodge Dakota 2dr Regular Cab 2WD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Not a bad price with rebates, but does not hold it's value. Looks really sharp. Electrical problems with flashers 3 times. Eats way to much gas. Engine runs rough at idle (currently 14k miles) Has appeal for a young crowd!

Review

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!
