Good overall truck

1992 Dodge Dakota LE 2dr Extended Cab SB


The 1992 Dakota is a very good overall truck. Power is decent for the era with the V6. Running the AC while driving in hot weather tends to cause it to need to downshift often to accelerate at certain speeds. I recommend the V8 for the club cab, especially with the 4x4 option. The exterior and interior design still looks good to this day. With a new paint job, removed plastic moldings, and wheels, many non-car-savvy people mistake mine for a new truck model.

Best Features

V8 option in a smaller, lighter, and easier to manuever truck. More interior and truck bed room than the S-10/Ranger/etc.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is unimpressive. 16 mpg average in mixed driving with a maintained V6 and bedcover. Problems I've encountered: Timing chain develops slack causing it to eat up the gears. Distributor gear developed slack resulting in a hard to diagnose starting problem.
