'02 4.7 V8 Dakota

For the money this is a great truck.
Excellent power, rides great,
comfortable, looks cool. That little
4.7 puts out some good ponies for that
mid-size truck. Had 2 minor problems in
the first couple of weeks, but the
dealer fixed for free. Engine made a
squealing sound like a loose belt, and
air bag light came on. I find that most
new cars go to the shop for minor fixes
within the first couple of weeks anyway.
Powerfull engine. This truck moves
pretty good with the 4.7L. Faster then
any other P/U, except for the R/T and
Ford SVT. My next one will be the R/T.
A little bit better quality. The front
end makes some knocking sounds sometimes
during turning. People complain about
Gas mileage, but I think its pretty good
for a V8. I added dual exhaust and
noticed a good improvement in gas
