1995 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I purchased this truck new and added the extended 7 year 100000 mile warranty. Good thing I did because lots of bugs needed fixing. Some of the items I had problems with was transfer case (Replaced 5 times). Transmission leak had gasket replaced 5 times. Drive shaft joint breakage. Tailgate misaligned, cruise control quit working. Replaced radio 5 times. Despite all these problems I have had the truck 11 years and it now has over 182k miles on it. With a recent tune up on the hwy I was able to get 19mi to the gallon hwy (Over 300mi on a tank of gas). That is good for this truck. Overall I have enjoyed this vehicle because it does deliver the power when needed.

Best Features

Exterior style, power, extra seating in rear for kids, dogs, storage.

Worst Features

Quality, manufacture reliability. Better transfer case for the 5.2L V8 to utilize. Better undercarriage design for a 4x4 to not catch on rocks etc...
