2004 Dodge Dakota Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab SXT Rwd SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is a fun truck to drive. I have the 3.7litre V6 with 5 speed transmission. This truck does respond very good with the V6 engine The comfort is good with enough room to seat myself and my wife comfortably. We enjoy this truck. And we like the body style.


Best Features

The V6 engine 210 hp, the center console has depth to put things in, the big numbers on the speedometer and gauges.


Worst Features

None at this moment.

2004 Dodge Dakota Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab SLT 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This truck has given me trouble from day one, literally! It is a beautiful truck, but has had extensive computer, power steering, transmission, and recently, parking brake issues. Chrysler is not standing behind this truck, and the computer problem cannot be completely fixed, as I am still experiencing the same problems and 13- 14mpg all around...sounds good for a little 3.7L engine, huh? Needless to say, I will never buy another Chrysler product again. Neither will my Dodge-owning family, in which there has been a total of 11 new Dodge products owned. Thanks Chrysler!!


Best Features

Exterior design, price, and overall appearance.


Worst Features

Front suspension and steering (went completely loose on me around 16,000 miles. Chrysler...stand behind your products!

Review

I love my Dakota! Nice and powerful and throaty sounding 3.7L V6. Towing my 17' boat is a breeze. 18,000 miles and no problems. It handles great and is very comfortable ride for a pickup. Road noise and wind noise is a little more than I would have liked, and factory stereo (Non Infinity) is a joke. Worst factory stereo I've heard on a modern vehicle. I have replaced the speakers and head unit and added a small Bazooka sub. Otherwise, I'm very pleased with this truck!


Best Features

Towing ability, styling, driving comfort.


Worst Features

More sound dampening to keep out road noise and wind noise. Better factory stereo.
