2001 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport 4WD (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


I purchased my 2001 Dodge Dakota (4x4 w/ 4.7L V-8) with about 150K miles on it. It now has 202,000 and still runs great. I started running Mobile 1 synthetic oil in it as soon as I bought it. The only serious problem I have had to fix was the leaking power steering pump. Typical Dodge truck. Mainly, that problem is just a nuisance. I did have to replace the main power window switch and the resistor for the heat/AC control, but those are cheap fixes you can do yourself. Other than that I love this truck. I am currently looking to buy a car because I know that the life of the truck is probably coming to an end, but she still starts every morning and I am gonna drive it until it quits.

Best Features

4x4, quad cab roomy, good looking truck with tonneau cover.

Worst Features

Dodge needs to fix the power steering issue it has had for the last 20 years. I have yet to get a used Dodge truck that doesn't mark my driveway with power steering fluid.
