2005 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


We purchased this truck used as a lease turn in, we bought it 11/2009 w/ 28,000 miles, nothing on a car fax (seemed "clean"; w/ the remainder of a 7/70 warranty. It's 4 1/2 months later. This truck has been back to the dealership 9 (nine) different times, and a total of 31 (yes, thirty one) days! And is still not right, engine lights still come on (abs, air bag, service engine & brake lights); has absolutely no power for a v8 magnum (but likes its gas), steering feels "sticky" or jumpy. Dealer recommended us buying max care warranty, that costs over $2000. Thought about hiring a lawyer and going after a lemon law or something! I rate this Dodge Dakota slt quad cab at -0 outta 10!

Best Features

SLT so interior is pretty to look at, but we would Rather have a good dependable, worry free vehicle!

Worst Features

Not sure, my suggestion we be for Chrysler to buy me a FORD and take this Dodge! Never again will we buy a Dodge!
