Great truck, could be a bit better
By Rook on


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


(V8 Manual) I have been taking this
truck all over the south, on highways,
on dirt roads, a bit off road, and I
love it. Powerful even uphill, very
smooth and quite silent, except at high
speed when the wind noise gets a bit
too loud. The bed is adequate, but I
really missed the extra .7 of a foot.
I liked the manual transfercase better
than the electric one.
I tried a toyota tundra and it felt
smaller than the Dakota, and I couldn't
get a manual transmission for the V8.
Why do some manunfacturers take the
manual transmission away from V8's??

Best Features

V8 power, acceleration, cab room, available Manual Transmission.

Worst Features

They need to place the stick in a better position, as it is it obstructs some controls. A 6th gear should be standard.
