Dakota Review — i do like the truck because it is noce and comfortable with the two bucket seats. but if you want a 3rd adult sitting in the middle it will be cramped and the seat is kinda uncomfortable to sit in. but onto the bed it is a nice 61/2 foot bed. it is the only truck considerded in its class. but overall built very well. for some reason the breaks lock up but that could be just because it hasnt been driven in 2 months

Pros

towing capability is decent for its size

Cons

unreliable after a few miles

Usefull For Us But Any Thing More For Towing Or Payload And Its Just Not Tuff Enough — it can haul decent for its size and engine. evan for a dodge its been reliable, it drove fine with a bad fuel injector. it rides awsome not to soft like a chevy and not a rock like the ford.

2000 Dodge Dakota — The Dodge Dakota is one of the best if you are looking for a mid sized pickup, its not to big and its not to small. mine has the 287 4.7L v-8 so it has pretty good acceleration although it could be better. I think that the truck handles pretty good on just about any kind of surface except gravel roads that have that washboard effect on them, then it handles horrible. The build quality of the truck overall seems to be pretty good although i have noticed that my tailgate does squeak and rattle and it is annoying when you have the rear sliding window open. I think the styling of the truck inside and out is pretty good and i dont think i would change anything on the outside of the truck. The gas mileage is not to bad on the highway as long as you are going about 60mph-65mph you will see 16-24mpg depending on how flat the road is and how much wind there is. However if you are going to go 75mph-80mph on the interstate dont plan on seeing anything better than 15mpg. Gas mileage in town all depends on how much acceleration you want when the light turns green, my average for in town is about 14mpg. My truck is 4x4 which makes it a pretty fun vehicle to drive when it snows of when you go off-road, however if you are going to be off-roading a lot in this truck i would plan on getting some mud tires because before i got my mud tires i found it easy to get my truck stuck. Now that i have had these new mud tires on it i have not been stuck once.

I Love It And Will Keep It For A Long Time If It Holds Together — It does its job well and is very comfortable but it keeps breaking down. Dodge trucks are great... if you can repair them. It does well on gas for a truck with that big of engine. Handling is very secure and it does great in bad weather although it is not that great off road. Interior is very roomy and the exterior looks great!

Pros

V8 in a mid. size

Cons

13.3 mgp no matter what

Just Ok — It was at best just OK. I never had any problems with it but after my 1996 it was a big let down. It had worse performance and worse gas mileage. 13.3 mpg is not what I was expected out of a mid. size truck

Love It — I love the power this truck has with its V8 and the 4X4 to do some crazy off roading, the only thing i dont like about this truck is the dealership i bought it from. Well its about time to go drive my truck now.
