Pros

I have not had very many problems with my truck so far, other than the fuel filter, and hub assembly.

Cons

I only get about 12mpg on the highway, and around 8mpg otherwise.

Awesome! — The only thing that i do not like about my truck is the paint job, someone that had it before i owned it did not get a very good paint job on it, it has two chips of black paint to red paint underneath.

This One Is A Winner — Handles great,13 yrs and rattle free,225,000miles & sounds like it just came off the assembly line,except for tire noise (road tread is quieter)

178,000 Miles & Just Getting Started — This is a great midsize pickup. I you are like me and wanted a highway vehicle with the versatility of a pickup but you don't tow very often, this truck is a perfect fit. Top notch ride quality, engine performance, and gas mileage (for a pickup) 20 mpg w/3.9L v6.

D&a's Dakota — It's a solid truck, ours has a 5.2 V8 and has more then enough power to move it where it has to go. the one bad thing is it sits too low and can get hung up in snow alittle too easy

Needs Work — performance is NOT were it could be but cant afford to re-do. appearance could need a new paint job. Sucks on gas mileage, needs a lot of work. Excellent sound system. need a new tranny and engine but cant afford it at the moment.

93' Dodge Dakota — I bought my truck with a 144 thousand on it with no transfer case in it. It was a damn good buy in my mind cuz for a 93 dakota with a 144 on it and not a spec of rust on it, its doin damn good so far. Haven't had it all that long but its a great work truck and a great hunting truck.
