ReviewBefore owning this truck I had a Ford F150 XLT Supercab w/ 5.4L and three door cab. I traded it in because the transmission was starting to go. The biggest mistake I made in buying the Dakota was in not getting a V-8. I mistakenly thought that the gas mileage would be better with the V-6. The amount of gas mileage that you receive does not even come close to justifying the horsepower you lose when going with the V-6. Other than than preferring the V-8, I would also get the quad cab instead of the club cab. With my f-150 I at least had three doors, with the club cab you have to fold the front seats forward in order to access the back seat.
Best FeaturesMy favorite features about The Dakota SXT are its styling, comfort and the size of it. It is not as small as a Ranger or S-10 or Tacoma, but it is easier to park than a F-150, Sierra, or even Tundra.
Worst FeaturesI would add access doors to the rear seat area, and improve the horsepower to gas mileage of all the Magnum engines.
