'02 V-8 Dakota
By Marklom on


2002 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab Sport 2WD SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Overall the truck is great. I did not
want a huge full-size truck, but wanted
a V8. I love the looks of the truck
and it handles real well. It has
plenty of power for a mid size truck.

Best Features

The 230 horsepower engine! This little truck really moves with this engine. I installed dual-exhaust and really noticed a difference in improved gas mileage and horsepower. Also, that little V8 really roars now. There's nothing like that Mopar sound!

Worst Features

Stiffer rear springs. In my Toyota Tacoma and couldn't tell when I had my motorcycle in the back. The Dakota's rear springs get slightly mushy with the bike in the back, but not much. The bed ties downs aren’t in the best locations, on the floor.
