2000 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Crew Cab SB


Love this truck. The handling and power are well above what I expected for a "mid"sized truck. The 4.7 V8 accelerates flawlessly and has power on demand on the interstate. At 47500+ miles she still has NO rattles/noises inside the cab, very low wind. NO excessive tire wear for the mileage(with my regular rotations).
Problems encountered: engine rough idle. Crank Shaft Position Sensor failed. The electric aux fan relay stuck on, damaging the fuse box, dealer replaced with a loaner Durango the whole wait. My brakes chirp constantly even with cleaning.
Summary: QC still performs as good as the day I drove her home.

Best Features

Definitely the V8 availability. Body design! Rear door 90 degree pivot and rear room/comfort. Tire/handling options. Rack/pinion steering. Bed size is fully functional in width and length..(compared to other compact trucks.

Worst Features

A/C controls need to be color-coded for A/C non A/C positions. Interior A/C blower noise at faster settings is high. Brakes are a known quality concern, altho mine have had no problems, except for a constant chirp. The oil filler tube allows goop to form due to location. Mileage could be better.
