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


I love my truck but the engineering and component quality leave a lot to be desired. 4 wheel drive problems with rear pinion seal leakage replaced 3 times. Slip yoke is always the culprit with this problem. Have also had the rear drive shaft replaced last warranty visit along with 3rd rear pinion seal replacement. Brake rotors turned 3 times can't get more than 12,000 miles without pulsation setting in. The dealer has been fantastic about addressing all the problems with this truck I would highly recommend you shop a dealer as much as price.

Best Features

Good points: V-8 highly reliable Tows a ton Goes like greased lightening very comfortable seats good storage capacity inside 4 Wheel drive really works well

Worst Features

Better engineering on brakes and the 4 wheel drive components. There's no way a truck babied like mine should have constant leaks from transmission components
