well i have just payed this baby off and she has just over 65k miles. still running strong. just regular maintenance issues and new tires so far!! now after just purchasing a 19 foot travel trailer i wish i had the v- 8, but hey i will be giving thie truck to my 17 year old son soon and buying me a new quad cap V-8. do you hear me dodge i want a good deal!!!!!!!
so far good reliability
still want a diesel option in the dakota, but the domestic car companies are too gutless to offer it. it would sell once people realize all of the advantages of a small V-8 vs a gas engine. obviously american ingenuity is dead!!!!!!!
