2001 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab 2WD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I've owned my Dakota 4.7L V8 for 2 1/2
years. The V8 gives me the ability to
merge quickly with fast acceleration
It's awesome. Still, I can get over 20
miles per gallon at 70 mph. In town
though it is a little heavy on gas. The
ride is very comfortable. The only
complaint I've had is a slow action on
one power window. It works, but is slow
in one spot. I intend to get it worked
on before the warranty is up. I would
say reliability and quality overall has
been excellent.

Best Features

I like the V8 power best. The outdoor temp gauge, fuel economy readout, etc., are interesting. I love the power seat and its comfort, a must when buying it. Having a mid sized, very agile truck, not as small as the Ranger, Tacoma, S- 10 and all the rest, to me is great.

Worst Features

A rear side door on the extended cab would be nice. I don't think they offer it.
