1998 Dodge Dakota SLT Club Cab RWDReview

What? — Well, it definitely does not have the greatest acceleration, nor does it have great gas mileage, but the thing drives marvelously and purrs like a kitty. And its a stick shift which makes me a baddass- you really do need calf muscles for this one. And really, need i say more about the sexy thang?

Pros: its a beauty... and its baddass having a truck

Cons: friends call it tonka... not ok

I Loved It — truck was very fast. it had a 5.2 v8. i had it straight piped so it sounded great. it was 4x4 so it was awsome going offroad even though it had stock suspension. it wasnt to fuel friendly. it burned through a crap ton of fuel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 4x4

Cons: bad fuel economy

A Decent Truck — This truck has ok acceleration, has some good qualities when it comes to build and strength, it handles surprisingly well for a pickup, and for those of you that think ...man a full sized Dodge Ram is too much, but for instance a Chevy S-10 is too small this is the perfect size.

Pros: Build quality, Handling, Interior space

Cons: Brakes, Spark plug problems, Weak exaust manifold

Dodge Truck — Well it was a solid truck that got into a few accidents in it's day but never sustained any frame damage, It was decent in the towing department and handled very well during winter/hurricane conditions. It was more than able to to haul alot of good without a problem at all. It was a fun truck to own/drive.

Pros: It was a truck nothing better than having an 8 1/2 foot long trunk.  It had a nicely powered v-6

Cons: It was a truck not so good on the gas mileage

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! — the one thing that i dont like about this truck is that the back seat is way too small, especially when you have to carry 2 teenagers in the back seat and they are cramped and keep complainig the whole way to the desired destination of your choice. IT SUX!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Cramped back seat

Dakota R/t — Truck is very quick, tops out at 115 Will eat up cheap brakes every 3k miles Standard sport look, they just dropped the front 2 inches Gas mileage is horrible, I barely squeak out 13 mpgs It was a fun truck in its day, but not to practical for a married man with a kid.

Pros: A inexpensive to buy sport truck

Cons: bad with todays 4.00 gas

Pros: Good gas millage for a V-6, looks decent, minor issues
