2000 Dodge Dakota R/T Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB


Dodge far and away builds the poorest
vehicle I have ever owned. This truck
not only depreciates the fastest of
any American vehicle but the milage
rating was overstated by almost twice
what it got. Also when the dealership
was questioned about the poor milage
and the engine miss I was told "yes I
can hear it but Dodge won't authorize
us to fix it" For having as large of
an engine as it did it was not fast.
For a 2000 the idea that Dodge uses
the same undercarrige as a 1970 car
pretty much tell the story on the
funding they put into research and
development. Never will I look at a
Dodge\Chrysler vehicle again.

Best Features

The one redeiming feature was the color, Intense Blue.

Worst Features

four doors on the extended cab, seats that would allow the driver to set for more than 20/25 min. An engine that would make decent horsepower/torque 300/300 and still get decent milage 17/23 mpg city/hiway. Suspension from this era, drum brakes and stamped steel A-arms NAH!
