2004 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4dr Quad Cab Sport Plus 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my third Dodge. First had a 96 Ram 1500, then a 02 Dakota. Now have the 04 Dakota. Love everything about it. It's got the V8 with a 5 speed manual transmission. Way more power than the V6, and almost identical gas mileage. Spacious but not too big. Perfect for city or highway driving.


Best Features

V8, stick shift, style, looks, pretty much everything.


Worst Features

Wind noise, lousy factory tires (Goodyear) that in 2 inches of snow you gotta use 4x4 or you'll get stuck. Gas mileage is no issue - it's a 4x4, V8, what do you expect?

Review

This is my second Dakota in the last 3 years. I looked at the new Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon & passed up both, along with my GM Employee discount for another Dakota. For my kids & hobbies I could not do without the 4 doors.


Best Features

4 doors, 4x4, V-8 power in a smaller truck.


Worst Features

I have had the front rotors turned twice & the back turned once at the dealer in 25xxx miles. Most all my driving is highway. The dealer told me the new Dodge break pads are too hard for the metal of the rotors.

Review

With the exception of the trans/engine "stutter" between 45 and 58 in OD, the truck handles and drives great. So fun to drive, and everytime i see an open field or a big mud hole, i cant help but want to drive in it. Have never gotten stuck once. Interior is not overly done, but not plain. Very reliable, only problem i had was with the O2 sensors when i first got it. None sense.


Best Features

4x4, 6-disk cd changer, quad cab

Review

My Dodge Dakota has been a pleasure to own. The ride and handling is excellent. I have put on over 10000 miles in the 7 months I have owned this vehicle and have no complaints other than the fuel consumption, but buying a 4WD, 4.7L V8 you have to expect not to get the best fuel economy. I live in Chesapeake, VA and drive 19 miles to work in heavy traffic and I get on average 17 miles to the gallon.


Best Features

I personally think the fuel economy display is an excellent tool. I can easily check my mileage with very little effort during any condition. The truck bed is more than sufficient for most. Very good seating for the back seats. I would not have got the vehicle if it was hard to get in or out.


Worst Features

I am happy with the vehicle and have no suggestions at this time
