2003 Dodge Dakota 2dr Regular Cab Sport Rwd SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


I bought the truck new and have had a blast with it. It has the Stampede package which caught my eye on the dealer parking lot. Bought it for fuel economy over my 79 Warlock and it has delivered promised fuel economy, 18 mpg for the daily 7 mile commute and 22 mpg on my annual trip to FL. The Stampede package really enhances the handling and styling. I tow two motorcycles regularly from state to state and the drive train is solid. Have 61,000 miles and have only had to do routine maintenance. Battery did quit suddenly at 5 years but that's about what you get from factory batteries. Wish I had gotten the extended cab but the styling didn't go with the Stampede package. Love this truck!!!

Best Features

Styling, handling, fuel economy, cab layout with center console.

Worst Features

Fix the center caps on the wheels, they keep falling off. Don't like the chrome caps Dodge sells as replacements. Had to make my own carbon fiber spring to keep the stock caps from falling off.
