2006 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Club Cab 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Owned the 4.7 V8 Magnum version of this vehicle for three years. During that time, we poured $8000 in repairs alone into it. We should have bailed ship at the first sign of trouble. Money pit. Rust issues and strange structural issues galore. Other than that, it was a great truck for hauling around nearly a ton of stuff and a daily commuter. Comfortable, simple clean design interior with nice Alpine stereo. 4x4 really came in handy during winter and extreme rains. V8 was responsive and sturdy. Took a massive loss with this vehicle though. Wouldn't recommend this particular year for the issues associated with it. Check owner forums to determine a good year to buy.

Best Features

Sound system, V8 Magnum power, 4x4, Reflex bed liner

Worst Features

Use titanium instead of iron or just redesign the water run off by the radiator so it doesn't pool up and create issues. I believe they did solve these issues in the redesigned years.
