ReviewOK, so Iacocca hasn't been CEO of
Chrysler in a while, but he changed
their mindset. The result is the
Dakota. Works like a mid-size pickup
should; drives/handles like a large
car. I am happy with it. Toyota was
overpriced; Fords too small in the mid-
sized pickup market. Sturdy. Fine
utility/tow vehicle. Reminds me of my
first pickup love; a 1986 Ford Ranger
XLT 4WD, but with out the accompanying
1986 Ranger transmission problem.
Best FeaturesComfortable on long trips; gas mileage as you would expect. Advertised is 13- 16mpg; I get 12.5 to 17 with the V-8 tow package. Paint and interior holding well. Plenty of front seat room.
Worst FeaturesElectrical system needs re- engineering. Panel light brightness adjustment gets too hot to touch. Battery has failed 2x in 36 months with no prior indication of a problem on the ampmeter. Was a bit light in the rear until I put a shell on the back.
