'02 4.7 V8 Dakota
By DodgeDude on


2002 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab Sport 4WD SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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 mileage.
