Great Design, Poor Quality

2000 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Crew Cab SB


Love this truck to drive. Looks good
handles good, cleans up nice. One big
shortfall - the overall maintenance and
repair level is high and unacceptable.
After owing this vehicle for 44 months
I am spending annually about $2000 in
repairs while I have spent less than
$500 TOTAL for a Honda van of about the
same age and mileage. Oil leaks,
differential leaks, leaking heater
cores, bad air conditioning clutch,
heated mirrors have failed etc.... Just
too much, it shouldn't be this way!

Best Features

Design and size. Nice utility truck without being too big, can fit it into tight city parking garages but still haul stuff.

Worst Features

If Dodge wants to compete with foreign or even other domestic makers they need to make some large strides in long term dependability and vastly reduce the overall maintenance cost!
