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


Review

all in all a really good truck


Favorite Features

my favorite featrure would have to be the acceleration of the 4.7 liter engine


Suggested Improvements

DODGE NEEDS TO ADD A THIRD DOOR FOR THE CLUB CAB MODELS. IT NEEDS A TIGHTER TURNING RADIUS. IT NEEDS BETTER CUP HOLDERS POSSIBLY SOME THAT COME OUT OF THE DASH

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


Review

Great truck for day to day use, however it is lacking in the following areas. Fair interior, lacks style/plain. no white face guages,red tail lights,amber turn lights, Could use some restyling to reflect a more ram like appearance. Dodge should also offer more choices regading performance & handling options on the 4 door truck. Ram Air option would be also a good idea. Disappointed with fuel milage and performance with 5.9 approx 17mpg on highway dispite several modifications. For a 5.9L I expected a lot more power in this size truck.


Favorite Features

Body styling, reliability.


Suggested Improvements

More ram like appearance, more performance, & handling options, more horsepower,more body enhancemants,IE: ground effects and spoiler kits. More stylish interior.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Style, ride, POWER (4.7)


Suggested Improvements

Mileage, some way. ( I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too!
