2002 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab SLT 2WD SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


I had a Chevy..many problems. Then I got a Ram Quad 1500, it was nice, but sooo tight in the garage. This (not so) little Dakota is the perfect size for a family man who doesn't tote a lot of lumber anymore. Kids love the backseat, Mom loves the size, and Daddy loves the V8! The V6 seemed sluggish, and the V8 downright hauls butt. I actually got the V8 cheaper than I could have gotten the V6...go figure. From my past experience with the Ram, I know there is quality. I had minor problems, but dealership and Dodge excell in customer service. GOTTA GETTA DODGE!!!

Best Features

V8 power, SMOOOOOTH tranny, CD player, crew cab for family, anchors built in for child seats, BIG ol' tires, GREAT handlingaround corners. Tight little package.

Worst Features

Better material on seats, standard door trim would be nice, rear window not tinted as dark as side windows.
