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


This truck is a great vehicle that I use as a daily driver and it has always gotten me from point A to B. This truck has a very nice speed for being the 3.9 V6 and has a lot of torque. The only downfall is that the fuel economy is ok for a vehicle. I get about 18mpg in town and I get almost 24 on the highway. I have over 180,000 miles on it and the only problem I have had with the truck is an oil leak at the oil pan, which I have heard is a common problem with Chrysler's vehicles.

Best Features

Powerful engine, nice stock speakers and rear subs, great handling, and can haul a ton of stuff.

Worst Features

Fuel Economy and the oil pan leak and the position of some of the spark plugs are hard to change. Lastly, the check engine light code for misfiring when nothing is wrong.
