ReviewMy Dakota performs well in spite of how
I abuse it. For a V8 4x4, the gas
mileage acceptable. It has been
extremely reliable - and I put 30K
miles on it the first year!. The only
serious issue was the AC clutch bearing
failed, which I replaced myself. I did
upgrade the cheesy factory front
rotors. For all the other reviewers who
bought the low-end versions econo-
versions ("It lacks power with a 2.5L
engine..." duh! it is a truck!) - you
get what you pay for and you should
have had a V8. This is no featherweight
Nissan putt-putt - it is a real
vehicle, so get a real engine and then
Best Features4.7L V8 - an awesome engine with lots of opportunities for increasing torque and HP off a good base. Very reliable.
Worst FeaturesDitch the factory rotors at 15K miles and upgrade to PowerSlots (slotted) or Stillen (cross-drilled). I have PowerSlots. Get a spray-in liner on day one - but invest in a decent one (Line-X or Rhino - mine is LineX). Upgrade the air intake (IntensePerformance or K&N cold- air).
