2005 Dodge Dakota 4dr Club Cab Laramie 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


My Dakota has the 4.7L V8, which was not one of the choices on your drop- down menu. The V8 is the only way to go. Power, economy (Rated 1 MPG better than the 3.7) and that cool V8 sound. The horsepower is a good match with the size of the vehicle. I tested the 3.7 and there is no comparison. There is no part of the truck that I can complain about. The ride is stiff, but it is a truck. Must haves are the heated seats and the Sirius Satellite radio. I almost regret getting the 6 Disc CD changer because with what Sirius has to offer, I will probably never play a CD again.

Best Features

The Sirius radio and the heated seats are must-haves. Also, the oversized mirrors that are included with the towing package are great.

Worst Features

A sunroof option would be nice The digital readout on the radio is hard to read even in moderate daylight. A clock in the overhead console would be nice, as the clock in the Sirius radio disappears when you have the "info" button pushed to see which artist is performing.
