Don't buy one of these(Unless it's mine)
By GasHog on


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


The best fuel economy I ever saw was
11mpg on the highway on a several state
road trip. The EPA claims 17mpg on the
highway and a few less for the city. I
could expect 7 to _maybe_ 8mpg on an
average tank of mixed city/highway
driving. This truck is supposed to be
performance oriented. It is not very
quick considering it has a 360cid
engine and gets such lousy fuel
economy. If you are in the market for
a high performance truck, spend the
extra money and buy a Ford Lightning (I
don't even like Ford and am suggesting
it over my Dodge).

Best Features

Power delivery (which could be much better) and exhaust note. Self dimming rear-view mirror and overhead console information center with outside temp (it's always the little things that you remember).

Worst Features

Offer the Hemi engine. Exterior & interior changes to set this truck apart from it's 'dime-a-dozen' 2wd counterparts. I was amazed when attempting to sell this truck the amount of fathers looking for a $5k 2wd truck contacted me.
