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.

I have had poor luck with my Dakota! It
will shimmy, try to die, rattles, and
has poor power on take off. I hav been
told by (experts) that this is normal
for this truck. Now you and I know this
isn`t true. It also has major slack in
the drive-train. My gas mileage is much
worse than sticker showed. This is the
second Dakota bought new that I have
had problems with, a 93, and this 02,.
Who would dream of getting 2 lemons in
a row, or is this the standard for
dodge. I will never own another

After driving a Dodge Caravan for
years, it was a little difficult to
get used to the truck-like ride.
However, for a truck, I think the ride
is pretty good. I'm concerned about
the way it handles over bumps. Could
use more head-room. Seat belts are
hard to put on. Nice acceleration and
fun to drive.

the dakota has the best looking design
of any truck,mid-sized or smaller.the
design is such that even when it is
sitting still,it looks like it is in
motion.the larger tires,the paint
scheme,and the fender flairs really set
it off.every day i thank god for that
truck.there are just not enough good
things to say about it.
A new value-priced 2002 Dodge Dakota SXT debuts and includes 16-inch alloys, automatic tranny, air conditioning, bucket seats and CD player. An appearance group consisting of graphite-colored bumpers, grille and fender flares is also fitted to the SXT.
