2000 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Regular Cab SB


I am a very picky buyer- this was my 21st vehicle and my first new vehicle. Dodge was the only manufacturer that offered the combination I was looking for- a v8, stick, anti-slip transmission, great appeal, and low insurance cost. After 84000 miles, the truck hasn't lost any power, I get an honest 19 MPG average city/hwy, my insurance is $338 A YEAR, and it is quicker than the R/T, and most sports cars. I can pass other vehicles quickly while towing a 3500 lb. boat! The ride is smooth, parts are cheap ($125 for a complete DIY brake job), and it has the American resilience to rust.

Best Features

Power, style, dependability, utility, gas mileage, handling, low maintenance.

Worst Features

Rotors warped after 25000 miles, replacements did the same. A little cramped for those over 6'.
