Dakota 4-Door 2 Wheel Drive.
By R Hooge on


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


I love the looks and its fun to drive if the roads are dry. Great engine, the V8 is free-revving. The expected gas mileage of 17 city & 22 highway is way too optimistic. I do not drive this vehicle hard & the estiamtes are 15% to 20% too high. Very poor traction & handling on wet roads, the Goodyear Eagles seem to have very poor traction, and I have had lots of flat tires. Corners very well on smooth dry surfaces. Really bounces around on bumpy corners, almost out of control.

Best Features

Best looking truck. The box is suprisingly big. Rear passenger area has lots of room compared to Toyota & Nissan crew cabs. The power & sound of the engine. Good speakers. Comfortable seats.

Worst Features

Improve heating to feet. Paint could be better, hard to wash out stains (do not know why). Large outside rear view mirror & posts result in large blind spots (have to be very carefull). When you floor it the response isn't quick enough, the engine initally really roars with little response.
