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

Review

One thing I haven't seen anyone mention anything about is the optional AWD. I'm not sure if maybe it's not offered in all regions, but it's another great feature that puts this vehicle one notch above the rest. One flaw of the Dakota is it seems to have a light rearend. No problems with AWD. We've hauled 6000lbs of hay on a 16 foot trailer with the 4.7L 5 speed combo, and never had a problem pulling it uphill or anywhere. Comfortable and an attractive design. Especially for being 8 years old. The back seat of the club cab is not for adults but is good for children or storage.

Favorite Features

AWD, Powertrain, exterior design, comfort.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy. I understand it takes more gas to create more power, but another mile or two to the gallon would be nice. (current 14-15 mpg average) Some things have to be sacrificed I guess.
