Pros: How does 5.9L w/ a MagnFlow exhaust system sound to ya? Yeah I thought you might like that...I sure do.
Cons: Seat width and height.
Advice: Spend the extra $$$ get the Sport Plus and a rear sliding window.There is only one issue I have w/ this truck. The front seat width. When the arm rest is down between the front driver/passenger the driver loses significant leg spread. Keep in mind, I'm 6'4' and 210lbs. There are two ways to fix this. 1) ride w/ the arm rest up, 2) Purchase the 1500. If all I can find at issue w/ this truck is the seat width so I can drive all spread eagle w/ the cruise control on...than this truck ROCKS.
Pros: seating for six
Cons: would like a narrower console armrest
Advice: although the vehicle looks somewhat generic, i really am proud of my little trucksmooth acceleration, shifting
Pros: That foot pedal on the left !
Cons: Slight whistle on defrost , but it can be removed.
Advice: Look at others , this one will be in your garage.4.7 liters , 4 Big Doors , Nice Ride , A Real Good Value. Lots of room , tight handling in town, respectable fuel milage . A retractable tonnau cover topped it off with class .
Pros: 4.7 V8
Cons: everything else
Advice: stay awayAbsolutely a piece of junk. I have owned this vehicle for six months and thus far have had the front windshield replaced, the back windshield replaced, all four tires, the seat is broken,has water leaks since purchased. The wind noise is so bad you cannot hear the radio. In addition, there is a vibration in the front since purchase and the vehicle road walks. DaimlerChrysler states most of these problems are normal. They lie very well.I would not recommend a Dodge Dakota to my worst enemy.
Pros: The sound of the 4.7L V8 makes when entering a hyway
Cons: The gas milage, but that's what you get from a V8
Advice: This vehicle is great for family tripsI bought my first Dodge, the Dakota Quadcab about 10 months back and and I'm very impressed with this truck. I've owned trucks from Ford, Chevy and little trucks from Japan. They can't match my Dodge so far. I feel this mid-size truck has excellant quality, comfort and performance plus the styling is first class.
Pros: V8 power
Cons: No stake pockets in the bed
Advice: Get the 3.92 lsd rear-endI bought the same truck I drove for the test drive, I had the salesman with me so I didn't get to try it out real hard but I really liked it. It was very car like in its feel and driving manor. The best part is it didn't feel like your butt was on the ground, and I could see over and around other vehicles. It had great power, and was quiet with no annoying noises that shouldn't have been there. It was hard to park at first getting used to it, But I came from a Cavilier, so it wasn't the trucks fault.
