1996 Dodge Dakota 2dr Regular Cab SB


I've had my '96 Dakota for 8 years, and it still looks and runs great with 98,000 miles on it. I've replaced the water pump and the A/C system (I live in Florida), and I've made cosmetic repairs to the interior. The 4 cyl. engine does not burn or leak oil, and the 5-speed transmission shifts smoothly and is fun to drive. The original factory white paint still looks great. I drive it almost every day, and it is still excellent transportation. With the tough plastic bed liner, this is a VERY rugged and dependable truck!

Best Features

5-speed manual transmission. Rugged plastic bed liner. Quality of body design & build.

Worst Features

Quality of interior trim pieces. Tachometer would be nice with manual transmission.
