Vehicle

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

Review

This is the best vehicle I've ever owned, including an '89 Acura purchased new. The Dakota with 4.7 L V8 has excellent leg room for a 6 footer, more power than I can possibly use, an excellent sound system (infinity), a quiet cabin, and good structural integrity. I compared the Dakota with the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Tacoma. These vehicles did not offer the same level of luxury and features as are found on the Dodge.

Favorite Features

Power, roomy quiet cabin, leg room, and infinity sound system. Handles well for a truck (and many cars).

Suggested Improvements

The 4.7 L V8 is a gas guzzler. I get 13.5/20.5 mph city/highway. I'm worried about reliablity, given my past experience with a Dodge Caravan (Transmission died at 60K). An extended waranty might be a good idea.
