Pretty good truck
By J. Hilderbran on


1998 Dodge Dakota R/T Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB


Overall the experience has been a
positive one. This truck has a great
feel to it & is a blast to drive. It
has enough power when you need it. It
looks sharp & the interior is well
finished. It is very comfortable &
the extended cab is roomy enough. It
has had one mechanical problem. The
sending unit in the gas tank is bad &
the gas guage reads quarter full when
you are actually out of gas. The
original Goodyear tires sucked (but all
Goodyear tires suck). The gas milage is
pretty good.
The only bad exterior problem is with
the black front bumper. It started
flaking & rusting at about 25,000
miles. The rest of the paint job has
held up well.

Best Features

Great handling. Great power. Great looks. I like the front grill much better than the Ram series. Excellent Interior finish. 22 gallon gas tank. Fun factor of 10+

Worst Features

Better paint job on front bumper. Front seats need to recline all the way back instead of 3/4 way. The headlight switch should be turn knob instead of pull out knob. The interior air vents should have an adjustment to close off the air flow instead of just swivelling side to side.
