The sport style looks great. This truck is great to tow and haul heavy material.

Cons

The truck drives heavy it feels, moves, like a bigger truck.

Work And Family Truck. — I am overall satisfied with this truck. It was great for family outings as well for carrying and hauling materials to work. The sporty dodge look will catch the eye. Paint and shine is still strong. The truck is fun to drive especially on the highway were it more fuel efficient.

Pros

Love love love the look and style of this truck

Cons

I hate that the one problem a Dodge will present is transmission issues.

25

Nice Truck Wish It Didn't Have The Transmission Problems — great performance, build could be better been in the shop twice for the transmission love the appearance of both the exterior and interior gas guzzles like no ones business. It is fun to drive through gullywashers and lots and lots of puddles.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Excellent Little Chick Magnet — Great little fun to drive truck. Stick shift is extremely fun. Looks good, basically a chick magnet. Reliable and fair gas mileage for a truck. Not a man with a lot of words, so this will have to do. Ha

Not as comfortable

06' Dodge Dakota Slt 4wd Quad Cab — Not as comfortable as the earlier generation but the motor is about the same and the suspension is easier to work with then the previous. I also wish it sounded a little deeper like the 04 we have but I guess I'll have to get a magna flow.

My Dodge Truck — --2006 Dodge Dakota Club Cab ST-- Performance - It runs great, but needs better low-end power and torque. When punched, it flys like a bat out of hell! Quality - Great, bought it used, so it had some things needing repaired! costly things to be specific! all fixed now! Appearance - Awsome, couldnt have asked for a more beautiful Truck! Love the styling of the truck. Many plans already thought of for this truck, just waiting on the funds to be there!

Dodge Dakota — reliable, durable, comfortable, and lots of power. Have done nothing to it but put tires on it. Goes through anything. Wouldn't trade it for anything, but a dodge ram.... fun to drive. this is my third one, I guess you could say I like the truck.
