2004 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport Plus 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

With the exception of the
trans/engine "stutter" between 45 and
58 in OD, the truck handles and drives
great. So fun to drive, and everytime i
see an open field or a big mud hole, i
cant help but want to drive in it. Have
never gotten stuck once. Interior is
not overly done, but not plain. Very
reliable, only problem i had was with
the O2 sensors when i first got it.
None sense.


Best Features

4x4, 6-disk cd changer, quad cab

2004 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport Plus 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My Dodge Dakota has been a pleasure to
own. The ride and handling is
excellent. I have put on over 10000
miles in the 7 months I have owned this
vehicle and have no complaints other
than the fuel consumption, but buying a
4WD, 4.7L V8 you have to expect not to
get the best fuel economy. I live in
Chesapeake, VA and drive 19 miles to
work in heavy traffic and I get on
average 17 miles to the gallon.


Best Features

I personally think the fuel economy display is an excellent tool. I can easily check my mileage with very little effort during any condition. The truck bed is more than sufficient for most. Very good seating for the back seats. I would not have got the vehicle if it was hard to get in or out.


Worst Features

I am happy with the vehicle and have no suggestions at this time

2004 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab SXT 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I looked to purchase this vehicle after
I realized the Toyota Tacoma was too
rich for my blood. I am very happy
with the engine power and build
quality. Plenty of storage in this
vehicle. I feel that the ride of the
Dakota is very carlike as opposed to
the Tacoma which drives like a truck.
Would recommend this vehicle to anyone
who wants a great value for the money.


Best Features

Engine power, 4 doors (a must have), vehicle design, and storage


Worst Features

There are some minor issues I have with finish, one of my fender flares is pulling off (3m tape worn, only 2k miles, and weather molding on passengerside door is letting air in.

Review

I considered many trucks of many makes, styles
and sizes. The Dakota met my family/hobby/work
needs best so I found the right one and bought it.
I've owned it for nearly a year now and I have no
regrets. The 4.7L Magnum mill pushes just the
right amount of power
while the 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes unfailingly
reel that power back. My family of five can
comfortably make longish journeys in it while the
HWY mileage doesn't kill our finances. The 4X4
grabs the ground nicely!


Best Features

Bodystyling, electronic 4-wheel drive, quad cab setup, front bench seat, plenty of room.


Worst Features

front fascia and foglamps seem and look cheap on my particular model.
