1997 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab SB


Bought my truck new. Have driven 110 miles round trip to work daily for past 6 years. Now have over 257,000 miles and uses only a half quart oil between changes. Still runs great. No major repairs, only things that wear out on any truck, brakes, water pump, belts, rotors. Radio did go out and I replaced it with a nice one with cd, which I was going to do anyway. Plenty of power with the V6, gets about 21 mpg no mater how I drive or what gas I use.

Best Features

Extended cab, lots of room for stuff you don't want to keep in bed. Just fun to drive.

Worst Features

Thicker, heavyer rotors. The cheap thin ones warp if they get wet while hot.
