If one word could best describe the 2002 Dodge Dakota, comfortable would be it. Whether carrying five adults, cruising the interstate, transporting cargo or tackling off-road terrain, the Dakota is at ease no matter where it is or what it's asked to do.

This truck rides like a luxury car on the highway and in the mountains it is a very stable well balanced ride. I have towed a heavily loaded 20 foot trailor over many of the mountain passes in Colorado, handling is supurb and the V6 Magnum engine has plenty of power to assend these high passes - many of them over 10,000 ft.

One thing I haven't seen anyone
mention anything about is the optional
AWD. I'm not sure if maybe it's not
offered in all regions, but it's
another great feature that puts this
vehicle one notch above the rest. One
flaw of the Dakota is it seems to have
a light rearend. No problems with
AWD. We've hauled 6000lbs of hay on a
16 foot trailer with the 4.7L 5 speed
combo, and never had a problem pulling
it uphill or anywhere. Comfortable
and an attractive design. Especially
for being 8 years old. The back seat
of the club cab is not for adults but
is good for children or storage.

Looked at a Ford Ranger 4WD Edge first
and just about bought it. Wow, am I
glad I took some advice and looked at
the SLT...........not really in the
same category but in my case, close in
price. Hope I comtinue to enjoy as
much as I do now. My wife also loves
it because it has plenty of style,
room, and power w/o overwhelming size.
