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!
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
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
