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


Getting the V8 in the Dakota really sets the vehicle apart from its competition. The 4.7 V8 is fast, refined, and reliable. The handling and ride of the Dakota are better than most trucks, but the brakes are not very good. The pedal is very mushy and without the 4 wheel ABS, the front wheels lock up frequently. The interior of the truck is very comfortable for 2 adults. 1 normal- size person can fit sideways in the back cab, but it's better used for groceries/packages. Reliability has been average in 30,000 miles. No huge problems, and a couple of small ones.

Best Features
