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


After researching, just bought this off-lease from Mopar dealer. 2004's were built during Daimler "marriage," so let's hope for decent quality/reliability. Apparently, 4.7 L Magnum is only 5% thirstier than sluggish V6. I bought this 4x4, as I store my '06 Mustang (from harsh salt, Canadian winters). Box will come in handy for Reno projects, too. May add cat-back exhaust for better sound & fuel economy. Recent combined, stop 'n go Toronto traffic + 120 km/hr (70 mph) highway yielded 17.6 imperial mpg. Really didn't want/need full size p/u. Rangers/S10/etc, is too small in rear (ok for small kids), Dakota just right size. 1/2 price of Nissan/Toyota V6 Quad. Local driving, so $1.00 a liter, is ok

Best Features

Power! Style. Quad cab=comfort for 4 adults. With 169,000 km, no rattles. Decent build quality.

Worst Features

No rear sear cup holders. No rear window defrost. Add locking gas door. My local dealer has a poor service reputation. I drove 1/2 hr away to "good" dealer.
