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


Well after 47k miles I thought I needed to write another review. So far this truck has performed like a champ. I do perform my preventative maintenance without exception. I changed the transmission fluid to synthetic @ 36k miles and the rear differential fluid to royal purple synthetic at the same time. I just changed my sparks plugs and cleaned my throttle body. I also put new ceramic breaks pads on @ 40k miles. I hope to get 200k out of it. I also use Mobil one synthetic oil every since 10k miles.

Best Features

Plenty of room inside. v-6 has plenty of power, but still gets 22 mpg. glad i didn't get the v-8 now that gas is 4 bucks a gallon!

Worst Features

Like I have been saying for years offer a diesel engine in the Dakota! Maybe even a diesel hybrid that will get 30 mpg. The technology is available, but greed is hindering its development.
