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


Well here I am again. After over 4 years of ownership and 51k miles I have to say I still am happy. With the economy in the tank like it is I am most likely going to run this truck till the wheels fall off. I plan on getting 200k maybe even 300k out of it. Skeptical you say? Well I have a car right now with 283k on it and I drive it most everyday. I am a maintenance engineering supervisor for the federal government. So you know that I take care of my stuff and so should you! So far only had to go back to the dealership once, and that was to replace a bad speaker on the passenger side. So not bad so far!

Best Features

Ride quality, and body styling, decent durability.

Worst Features

Offer a clean diesel in the dakota. The torque would be great and the mileage would be 40% better than a comparable gas engine. Also a diesel would last for 400k. Maybe that's why detroit doesnt want diesels because they want you to buy a new vehicle every 5 years.
