2002 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab Sport 2WD SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Overall, a decent truck. When it stays
out of the shop i love it. but it has
spent a lot of time there. My truck has
about 32,000 miles on it now and i have
to take it back for its second set of
ball joints. In 2003 its spent about 3
months in the shop for mechanical and
engine malfunctions. Dodge's customer
service was terrible. At four different
dealerships i was not allowed to get a
rental car paid for which i think was
wrong considering how little i got to
drive the vehicle. I know a lot of
people that have Dodges and dont have
the number of issues that i had, but
after this truck i will be going back to
toyotas and/or nissans for dependablity
I really like the styling on this truck.
of course, its an R/T, whats not to
like? it handles very well.
First, fix Dodges customer support at
the dealership. They leave you high and
dry. Second, its a 5.9...give us some of
the horsepower that this engine is
capable of producing. i get 12mpg for
only 250 HP. There are 6 cylinder
Accords that get more horsepower than this.
