Dodge makes some squeak cars

I Won't Ever Get Rid Of It.....ever — Performance in this truck is amazing to start with, add on top Mopars excellent assortment of performance modifications and you can get all you want. Build wise it is still a dodge, which isn't exactly lexus quality. The look is bar non the best looking truck ever made. This truck is not very costly unless you want it to be ;) This truck is a blast to drive and I would never give it up, even for something faster, which I've already bought something much faster.

Love This Dodge! — This car was purchased to be a winter vehicle (4x4) and a vehicle to run errands with (firewood, trips to the hardware store, going fishing, etc). It has performed wonderfully at its job. It was also proved handy when moving large furniture!

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

power and comfort

Cons

fast wearing parts

Great Truck, Not For Everyone — Its a great truck, but its not for everybody. Some parts wear out quickly, such as ball joints. The truck itself is pretty reliable and has some good power. However, some have had reliability issues with the transmission, I for one have never, and it seems kind of rare to me.

Great Off Road Truck — I bought this truck to hunt out of and drive to work it does both very well and has plenty of power. I wish it had extended cab doors like the bigger trucks do but It serves its purpose thanks.

Pros

Its really comfortable

Cons

The transmission

35

Great Vehicle — performs like a champ i havent had hardly any problems with it at all the only thing that i have a major issue is with the transmission but thats a given when you buy a dodge lol. Anyways the only problem with the transmission is that it is slow to shift only between 2nd and 3rd gear then after that its fine. It only has to shift between the two gears only once a day and almost all day long it shifts normally.

Roomy, great looking, has lots of cool features

Cons

Gas mileage, power

99 Dakota — I've owned this truck for about six months, while I've had to fix numerous little things mostly because the former owners let things go on it, I'm very happy with it considering what I paid for it. Just a very comfortable, great running truck.

Pretty Good — This truck is only a 3.9L V6 but at night before it warms up it can take in a pretty good amount of cool air and turn it in to power. Ya, its yellow but yellow is awesome. It doesn't suck to much gas and is fun to drive around. And its rollin on twenties:)

Pros

Interior, Power, Body style

Cons

Transfer case, no external fuel filter

Little Bout My Bumble Bee — Hello everyone, I love my truck for the most part. The power is nice, Interior is comfortable, and has a fair amount of room. However It has a few draw backs. The transfer case went out and the truck sputters. I believe the fuel pump can be an issue on most of these trucks, and has no external fuel filter. Over all I love my truck

Pros

Safe, strong engine, hauling power, drive over anything

Cons

small cab for one passenger only, not the best on gas especially when hauling or uphill

25

Strong, Safe, Fun — Nice body shape, aside from oxidized paint. Comfortable seats, easy to get in and out of. No blind spots with full back window, easy to park. Parts affordable and labor cheap. Uphill drives dragged, but otherwise good acceleration and handling. SUPER cold AC.
