2008 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Since last review with wiring problems, I've had my Dakota on two out of state trips, and pull a 2800 lb. boat and trlr. fishing. I now trust my truck. I'll do 72 on highway pulling boat with a/c on. May turn off air on big hills. I can get 19mpg when using cruise, which surprised me since I have a steady foot. Plan on getting 265 tires, from the 245 stocked next spring if it's no issue. I also plan on getting another warranty, I have lifetime drivetrain, but will research because know how business can be. They'd rather tell you to sue, it's about money. Don't know any other truck that will fit in garage, with the power, Toyota can't be trusted now. Waiting for wagon etc. with power, mileage.

Best Features

Sirius, power seats etc. upper console, comfort, huge engine, rated mileage using cruise. Handling, braking mech. all good. Quiet enough inside.

Worst Features

I'd prefer full time 4WD with mech. engage. Steering can be a little numb on highway, but it does handle well. Would like pop out cup holders like 05 Ram. Needs a double glove box like Nissan, lose the upper storage above glove box. Side air bags. I guess 2012 will lose the real truck for unibody, yuk
