2008 Dodge Dakota Laramie 4dr Crew Cab SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I reseached this purchase before spending $27K, and nothing compared to the value received in the Dakota. Oh yes, all the magazines love Toyota and Nissan, however, these same magazines receive a heck of a lot more incentives from these manufacturers for the positive take. This Dodge is every bit as good, more powerful, more capable and better looking. Take advantage of all the incentives, compare, and you'll come to the same conclusion---Buy it! You won't be sorry.


Favorite Features

Powerful V8, interior room, comfortable/quiet, towing capability.


Suggested Improvements

None---great as it is.

2008 Dodge Dakota Laramie 4dr Crew Cab SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Just picked up my 08 Dakota. Turned in a Ram for this little beauty. Very impressed with the looks, interior, and drive-ability of this truck. This is a very capable truck in a smaller package. Very easy for the wife to maneuver in traffic. Vehicle fit and finish is excellent. Better on gas than my old Hemi. Interior is very quite and the upgraded stereo is very crisp and clear. Really like the Sirius radio option. Had an issue finding room to store all my gear from the Ram. Solved by mounting on of the collapse-able bins from interior to the truck bed with sheet metal screws.


Favorite Features

Interior, Fit and finish, towing capability, Sirius radio, power seats, easy to drive.


Suggested Improvements

None at this time.

2008 Dodge Dakota Laramie 4dr Crew Cab SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My truck is actually a Sport w/V-8, crew cab. This is my 3rd Dakota. So far, my favorite. It's red, fast, looks sporty, handles great, rides good, doors open wide, seats firm and supportive, tows, looks good anywhere, best warranty of anyone. Traded down from full-size Chevy. Like this better. Easier to get in and out of and wife likes the size. Mileage is 21-24 on highway driving sensibly. City is lower of course. Acceleration is matched by nothing else is its' class. Brakes and transmission work flawlessly. When you turn on your truck, does it return the favor? Mine does!


Favorite Features

V-8,interior room, handling, fuel mileage (considering what it is), looks, I like it all!


Suggested Improvements

Slightly longer bed, dress up dash and door panels (too plain, but ok), GM style sun visors, SRT8 option.
