Great Truck, Quad w/ V8
By Bill on


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


Bought used, came off a lease, w/ 19000 miles. Preformance Dodge in Omaha went over the vehicle completely before it went off warranty and replaced some things that were going bad - they really treated me well - they take care of our Jeep Patriot too - great service dept. I really like the Dakota and it gets 16-18 mpg around town depending how much I use the a/c. The only thing you must do is get rid of the OEM shocks and replace w/ Rancho 5000's - they really settle it down - OEM are just to soft and cause some bounce, that I have seen others complain about. I've owned a lot of Jeeps (and if they made a truck I would have got that)my first Dodge - It's a keeper.

Best Features

Roomy, good handling, good ride (after Rancho shocks), 4X4 works great, great Dodge look, good mpg for a V8, power when needed.

Worst Features

Not a big deal I just like a 4x4 lever instead of a knob - it's all good.
