1998 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


The brakes have always left me with the
feeling that they are not adequate for
this vehicle. I have to use considerable
leg strength to stop quickly. There has
been a strange
thump/jerk in the steering wheel ever
since I have had the truck and has
gotten worse over time. I have had the
front end aligned and checked several
times. Steering is awful, the truck wonders
while going down the road but everything
is within "tolerance". Power is great
and fuel economy is average, 15-17 mpg.

Best Features

Power, looks, limited slip rear end. Four wheel drive activation on the fly.

Worst Features

Use the brakes from the 3/4 ton or disc's all around. Side inpact air bags for safety. Make the back seat taller or use head rest's so childrens heads don't hit the glass.
