'06 V8 Has 92k No Rattles or Squeaks

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


I bought this truck used with 88k about 6 months ago. I did replace a front wheel bearing, but otherwise this truck performs like a champ!

It has the smaller V8 and 6sp manual, a great combo for having fun and hauling a utility trailer.

MPG is right a t 20 on the highway and 16-17 in the city. For an engine nearing 100k, that's right on the EPA mark.

Interior is a bit bland, but everything is easy to read and easy to use. Power windows! Heated mirrors! I think those are my only options.

The 4x4 system is older but highly effective. Braking is very adequate, very little fade even with rear drums and front discs.

For 10g's, this was a really good buy.

Best Features

tall water bottles hit the stick in the cup holder. Steering can get a bit bouncy on uneven pavement, but when loaded down it is fine.
