2002 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab 2WD SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have had poor luck with my Dakota! It will shimmy, try to die, rattles, and has poor power on take off. I hav been told by (experts) that this is normal for this truck. Now you and I know this isn`t true. It also has major slack in the drive-train. My gas mileage is much worse than sticker showed. This is the second Dakota bought new that I have had problems with, a 93, and this 02,. Who would dream of getting 2 lemons in a row, or is this the standard for dodge. I will never own another chrysler product!

Best Features

I like the overall appearance of the vehicle. It is comfortable, and has nice interior features. The ride is smooth and road noise low.

Worst Features

make a vehicle with good dependabl mechanics/drivetrain/electronics. increase the rpm to at least 800 at idle.
