2008 Dodge Dakota SXT 4dr Extended Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


I was looking for a nice truck that was fully loaded, but wasn't too large. After comparing all of the models available, I noticed that the smaller, almost car-sized trucks were comparable to price of the Dakota. After taking it for a quick test drive, I immediately noticed that the V6 Magnum had the power that could be used if needed. Great interior - almost nice enough to be considered luxury - and all the features you could ask for. Great ride all in all. I average 18-22mpg combined, which isn't too bad for a truck this size. Towed my 16 foot, 1500lb boat with no effort. Nice stock stereo system. New design for the exterior makes the truck look much nicer. Great truck for the money!

Best Features

Interior and exterior looks. Extended cab is nice for storing - no need for toolbox in bed. Comfortable ride. Wouldn't mind taking it on long trips. Powerful V6. Just an overall great truck. Wouldn't change it.

Worst Features

None, other than improving the MPG on gas by a few points.
