2005 Dodge Dakota 4dr Club Cab ST 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
Review
After owning a Ford Ranger and looking at all the available vehicles in this class, purchasing the Dakota was a no brainer. It's roomier, quieter, smother and better handling, especially in corners where the Ranger had a tendency to feel like it was going to flip over. The lack of storage, if you forego the center console, is is very annoying. There is nowhere to store your cds except in the door pockets, which is less than ideal. The rear seat also leaves much to be desired in the club cab. with such generous headroom in the rear, they could have raised the seats a couple of inches, which would go a long way toward making the seat more usable for those over 5ft tall. Overall, buy it!
Favorite Features
The ride and handling are exceptional for a small pickup (although this is really anything but small.) Lots of interior room and a good stereo (would be even better if it played mp3 discs) add to the comfort. Very readable instrument cluster. High class all the way.
Suggested Improvements
Raise those back seats 4 inches, NOW! Add mp3 capability to the standard stereo. Make power door locks, mirrors and windows standard. I had to go without them to get the V-6. All V-6's on the lots were ST's.
