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


Overall, a decent truck. When it stays out of the shop i love it. but it has spent a lot of time there. My truck has about 32,000 miles on it now and i have to take it back for its second set of ball joints. In 2003 its spent about 3 months in the shop for mechanical and engine malfunctions. Dodge's customer service was terrible. At four different dealerships i was not allowed to get a rental car paid for which i think was wrong considering how little i got to drive the vehicle. I know a lot of people that have Dodges and dont have the number of issues that i had, but after this truck i will be going back to toyotas and/or nissans for dependablity reasons.

Best Features

I really like the styling on this truck. of course, its an R/T, whats not to like? it handles very well.

Worst Features

First, fix Dodges customer support at the dealership. They leave you high and dry. Second, its a 5.9...give us some of the horsepower that this engine is capable of producing. i get 12mpg for only 250 HP. There are 6 cylinder Accords that get more horsepower than this.
