A Great Little Truck. — It's a carbon copy of the Chevy s-10, but more fuel freindly, quicker,better handling with the power rack and steering, wider, and basic v8 performance from the 3.9 v6. It get's 15 mpg with a constant load.It's like drivin' a tuner car with a bed.It basicly looks like a 1987-1995 ford pickup.Overall, it's a great truck.

I Love My Truck — Performance - it has decent acceleration, great braking, and handles pretty well for an loder truck Build Quality- The outside is steel, and the inside is plastic Appearence- I really like the way the truck looks, and I want to make it better when I get money Cost - I get between 17-20mpg which is really good for an older v-6 truck Fun - I have fun with this truck

Never Seen A Better Dodge Dakota. — Drove well fast or slow. Everything worked. I had to rebuild the tranny at 160,000. It was a beautiful truck. The downside is the terrible gas mileage. It's not that big of a truck so it shouldn't need so much fuel. Overall it was a great vehicle and very comfortable for the long haul.

V8 Power, Good Work Horse

Cons

Town Fuel Use is..... sub-par

I Miss My Truck — Good, long lasting, and reliable. This truck now has over 370,000 km's and is still running, if not a tad bit tired. Only serious problems are rust troubles, and any general old age problems. This truck has been able to do all our farm work, some landscaping, and a tad off-roading with no troubles.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

not too big not too small and looks great

Cons

has problems with high mileage like most vehicles

Can Do Any Just About Any Job Of A Full Size Pick-up Truck And Can Be Customized Almost All Over — its a nice little pick-up truck its roomy and will go through the mud. the gas mileage is not that great but it could be worse. its not too big not too small and has a fair amount of power the appearance meets my every expectation in a truck.

I Would Recomend This Truck To Anyone That Wants A Dependable Vehical. — I have the dodge Dakota 1995 V8 this truck will tow anything that you want it to. It is a very solid truck the only thing that i have had to replace is the radiator after 127K miles. It is a fun truck to drive it will get up and go when you need it to :). though i only get 15 MPG city on a good day.
