1996 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab SB


i have a 96 dakota slt club cab v6 with
90k miles.it has had many problems
transmision,ac,plebium gasket
leak,water pump,alternator,fuel gage
not accurate,dash lights to name a few.
i like the looks of the truck,and over
all comfort is good.i like the engines
choices,better than competion.v6 needs
more power.i average 16mpg mixed
driving. and slightly bigger than
competion. inteior is outdated,next
generation got much improved in this
area.overall i would not recommend this
truck do to poor reliability problems,
but i may have owned a lemmon. just my
two cense take it for what its worth.

Best Features

looks,size,engine choices(get the v8)

Worst Features

v6 needs more power,acceleration is just ok. has reliability problems especially transmission.
