Keep on Truckin'
By Tim on


2003 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport Rwd SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


This truck has been a steady performer. It is functional enough for light construction duty and family recreation. Our family of 3 + 1 large dog has found there is plenty of int. room and adequate cargo capacity for our road trips and camping outings. The ride is truck like, but without much road noise. There have been no major problems, but the broken emergency brake release lever and the poor seal around the gas intake pipe are annoying. The V6 provides pep and the transmission shifts smoothly. The gear shift on the steering column is a little tempermental and requires perfect placement before finding the right gear. Traction on wet pavement and snow is weak when the bed is empty.

Best Features

The cargo light for the bed is a handy feature when unloading the bed at the campground after sunset.

Worst Features

A bigger glove box and a pouch behind the driver's seat would be nice.
