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


I have owned my Dakota for one year now and I've put 25k miles on it. Belt tensioner went out at 18k miles and left me stranded with an overheated truck. Fuel economy is pathetic. I've never gotten more than 16 mpg's on the highway and I get about 12 in the city at best. This is a great work truck, but I would not recommend it as a daily commuter vehicle.

Best Features

Size. Ride height. Comfortable and rides well. Overall, a nice truck.

Worst Features

V6 should produce more power than what it does. I have to put the pedal to the floor if I'm driving uphill. Better fuel economy (or at least be honest on the window sticker).
