2005 Dodge Dakota Club Cab 4dr Club Cab Laramie Rwd SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After seeing some negative words, I had to jump on and defend this little truck. I'm not too demanding on the vehicle, but effortlessly pull my boat with it. Have found this truck to be responsive, easy to maneuver and reliable! Only problem ever encountered is vapor lock with a precocious locking gas cap, it makes the check engine light come on every once in a while after a fill up. Have had since new and am a very pleased owner.


Favorite Features

4.7L V-8 gives you a punch if you need it.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage would be a plus. Don't know why the average is only about 17 unless they need to amend the wheel ratio.

Review

I purchased my Dakota almost 2 yrs ago I drive a lot of highway miles. I find the Dakota stable at high speeds, comfortable, and the fuel economy at sustained speeds of 75mph not bad at 21mpg. I have the 6 cyl engine. It's not the peppiest engine but does an adequate job. (the Dakota does tip the scales at over 4,000lbs) The body is tight, the ride is smooth, and the bucket seats are comfortable for a big guy like me. My only complaint so far is that the the dashboard and radio lighting is inadequate in bright daylight. I can't read the letters and numbers on the radio! Overall the truck really is reliable, comfortable, and well put together


Favorite Features

Comfortable interior, and the Sirius radio is great


Suggested Improvements

Better lighting in the radio so I can read the info in bright daylight
