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


This was my first car/truck I ever purchased new (right off the showroom floor)This truck has been very good to me. The only issue I have had with it was a starter that went out however the dealer fixed under warranty and have done nothing more then change the oil, put gas in it and drive. Although the box is fairly small it had been fine for me. If you plan to hall large planks of lumber you may want a p/u with a longer bed as 5 & 1/2 foot is not all that usesfull. Fuel economy has held pretty strong around the low 20's. Expecting much more then that from a truck is not really all that practical unless your comparing to a 4cyl S-10 or Ranger.

Best Features

Overall the whole thing. It's an ideal truck for a young family that needs a truck to haul the larger purchases and projects. Great style and easy to drive.

Worst Features

Nothing real major would like a second power outlet. Word of caution if you put ventshades on the front doors you dramatically increase a potential blind spot.
