Review

Bought this truck new in 2001. repairs
to date: paint peeled off wheel flares,
steering column, steering rack,
intermediate steering column, four ball
joints, tie-rod end, front pads &
rotors, computer, rear bumper(rusted
out), driver seat tracks, radio. I
don't think I went more than a month
without a visit to a dealership.

What a poor excuse for a truck.

Review

Bought brand new in 2001. I am very
unhappy with the quality and
reliability of the vehicle. It only
has 43K miles on it and I have already
had to replace both rear U joints to
the tune of $400. I have owned many
trucks and never had to replace U
joints at this low a mileage.

In addition, we paid for an extended
warranty, but the warranty company
went out of business so we are stuck
having paid the cost of the warranty
but still have to pay for the
repairs! Dealer says sorry but there
is nothing they can do.

Great truck -had to add padding to the
bench seat to fit my back - but once I
got the seat to fit me - it is a blast
to drive with the small V8

handles loads very well

Review

I got the truck in april of 2001. The
Dakota has ample leg room in the front
but it is not the best in the rear for
tall people. I have the Dk. Garnet Red
paint which is one hin coat and then
the primer. It scratches very easily.
The 5.9 V8 has a lot of power which
makes it fun to drive. It has the
Infinity 6 speaker sound system which
has really great quality sound. The
only problems are that it went back to
the shop about every month till it hit
30,000 miles.


Best Features

Stereo, heat, air, engine


Worst Features

QUALITY!!!
