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

Review

Absolutley the best vehicle I've owned to date. It's my first truck, normally I drive small vehicles and dream about Firebirds and Camaros. But when you live in Central NY, the pony cars are useless. In 1999, I test drove my Dakota Sport 4x4 and owned it within 30 minutes. My first trip was from Utica to Buffalo for a Jets/Bills game (Jets won!!). I traveled in a blizzard with the 4x4 passing everyone on the NYS Thruway. I have 50,000 on it and it runs like it did on the first day!

Best Features

Excellent power for a V6. Even with the 4x4 gearing, I'm able to push some V6 Mustangs and Camaros off the start. Love the stock stereo, tires, perfect dashboard layout, and flame-red exterior.

Worst Features

Even though it gets 17 miles/gallon, I still think it's a bit of a gas hog. But a 4-Banger won't get you the performance so I deal with it. I'm in North Carolina now and having no A/C sucks!
