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


This is the best vehicle I've ever owned,
including an '89 Acura purchased new.
The Dakota with 4.7 L V8 has excellent
leg room for a 6 footer, more power than
I can possibly use, an excellent sound
system (infinity), a quiet cabin, and
good structural integrity. I compared
the Dakota with the Ford Ranger and the
Toyota Tacoma. These vehicles did not
offer the same level of luxury and
features as are found on the Dodge.

Best Features

Power, roomy quiet cabin, leg room, and infinity sound system. Handles well for a truck (and many cars).

Worst Features

The 4.7 L V8 is a gas guzzler. I get 13.5/20.5 mph city/highway. I'm worried about reliablity, given my past experience with a Dodge Caravan (Transmission died at 60K). An extended waranty might be a good idea.
