I've only had the 05 Dakota for month. Except for the headrest, I love the seats. I have the power driver's seat. Interior space is very good. However, the interior has too much of what appears to be low grade plastic including the door handles. The cup holders in the floor console is a joke and does not hold cups. Didn't find this out until after I purchased.
My favorite features of the Dakota is: 1. Payload and towing capacity. 2. Interior space. 3. Comfortable seating. 4. V8 Engine 5. Handling
Dodge should use a better grade of interior plastic, rethink and improve floor console useability and add metal door handles
