Don't buy it!
By Dave on


2005 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab SLT Rwd SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Can we say Lemon? I have never felt a worse vibration in my life. After 27 days in service and five attempts to fix, the dealership said "they all do it". DaimlerChrysler has agreed to give me full purchase price back and is allowing me to carry my rebates over to an 06 Chrysler 300. I wanted a mid-sized truck, but I am giving up. If you do buy, be prepared to vibrate. Some are worse than others, but we drove six new ones on the lot and they all did it to some extent. Mine was the worst the service department had seen, but they have had several others return with the same problem. They think it is the frame design but who knows.

Best Features

Good looks. That's it.

Worst Features

Replace the cheap, hard, plastic 1980ish S-10 Blazer looking dash and door panels with softer more modern design and feel. Two shades of grey would be better than three. Fix the shimmy problem.
