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


Having done the research for a bigger engine to pull with, I decided on the SLT, V8, 4WD with 4 doors. Like the new design for exterior, and upsized engine. Lots of power, and average MPG is around 17.5 with the auto. transmission. First thing I noticed was trailer lights not working properly. A computer glich. This turned out to be a small recall. The truck came with a trailer harness when purchased. Now the blower motor quit and the interior lights. A wiring cluster behind the dash for the odometer has my HVAC wiring running through it. Why would they run a 40 amp fan through this? I've been driving Toyotas since 1983. Considering going back to Toyota before my warranty expires.

Best Features

Ride, power, satellite radio, exterior looks.

Worst Features

Run HVAC, lighting, and other important wiring on seperate circuits. Stick shift in way of seeing dash controls and over cup holder on floor, making hard to lift beverage straight up whilr driving. Maybe check Toyota to see how they maintain quality of product for reliability.
