Vehicle2003 Dodge Dakota 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewWe purchased our '03 Dakota Reg. Cab SXT RWD for $13K. It was a nice "beater" car for my dad for work. But we have clocked on average of 12-15 mpg city and probably 19 highway. We had to replace the tires at 20k and then again and 45k. We were in a minor car accident with it where we tapped the back of another car on a freeway ramp, and it caused $400 damage. The plastic hood-release lever, broke off and had to get it replaced. The A/C conked out when he had 100-degree plus weather, which we took the repair shop and he found out that not only the cooling pump was shot but there was a cylinder- 6 miss-fire which could've been dangerous if it died on the highway.
Best FeaturesStandard non-Magnum V6 engine gets the job done, CD player
Worst FeaturesReduce the weight of the tailgate. (cause of such horrible gas mileage) DaimlerChrysler needs better build quality.
