2002 Dodge Dakota 2dr Club Cab SLT 4WD SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


One thing I haven't seen anyone
mention anything about is the optional
AWD. I'm not sure if maybe it's not
offered in all regions, but it's
another great feature that puts this
vehicle one notch above the rest. One
flaw of the Dakota is it seems to have
a light rearend. No problems with
AWD. We've hauled 6000lbs of hay on a
16 foot trailer with the 4.7L 5 speed
combo, and never had a problem pulling
it uphill or anywhere. Comfortable
and an attractive design. Especially
for being 8 years old. The back seat
of the club cab is not for adults but
is good for children or storage.

Best Features

AWD, Powertrain, exterior design, comfort.

Worst Features

Fuel economy. I understand it takes more gas to create more power, but another mile or two to the gallon would be nice. (current 14-15 mpg average) Some things have to be sacrificed I guess.
