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

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: V8 in a mid. size

Cons: 13.3 mgp no matter what

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!

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

Pros: good comfort and power

Cons: its a dodge

My Silver 2000 Dodge Dakota. — Performance- Acceleration is great, thus far i've smoked all contenders off the line, but she tops out at only about 118-120. Brakes are very good, but the handling suffers ever so slightly due to ride hignt. I prefer the 2wd version. Quailty- She is built very strong, however I question the engineer's defenition of functionaity as far as interior bells and whistles are concerned. Also, the oil filter is very awkard to get to. Appearence- She is beautiful, she shines inside and out :) Cost of ownership- I average around 20 mpg, but i can get 22 with fresh filters all around. This is practicly a zero maintanance vehicle besides gas and oil changes. Fun factor- She is a blast to drive, and the Infinity sound system is not too bad. However, upgrading the subs in the back will yeild very potent results.

Pros: 4wd is great when driving conditions get rough, but I never use it and would love the lower sitting 2wd version.

Cons: I have the 5.3 magnum, my next one will be the 5.9 hemi RT :)

Dakota R/t — R/T so small truck + big motor. It has balls but it's also thirsty - 10 to 11 mpg. The transmission leaves a lot to be desired, and wind noise/rattles (like most Dodge's) can be annoying, but will do donuts with ease and leave quite a long positrac-inspired dual burnout lines/blackmarks (w/e). I have a love/hate relationship with it...

Pros: 5.9L V8

Cons: Quite a few

2000 Dodge Dakota — This an awesome truck. It has a stock 5.9L engine.The truck is very hard on you wallet though but worth every penny. The interior is in great condition. the olny down side about the truck is the radio is not the best but it will do for now.

Pros: FAST!!

Cons: Fuel Mileage

Amazing Truck — I love the acceleration and handling of this truck but the braking could be a little bit better. It has a few rattles and no squeaking that I've heard so far. It is an extremely fun car to drive. Nothing like driving down the road as fast as possible and jamming out to music.

Pros: Great perfomance and very fun

Cons: Not so great gas mileage and could use some exterior work.

My Dakota 5.9 R/t — this is a 2000 dodge dakota 5.9 r/t this is not your normal dakota this truck comes with the 5.9 liter 360 cubic inch engine and it was a slug at first but i added alot of go fast goodies to it to bring the power up to about 650 hp. these trucks need a good set of heads and if your forced induct them like i did with mine you need a good set of mls head gaskets. other then that this thing will do a john force style burnout just by twicthing your toe it is a blast to drive

Pros: it is a blast to drive and it is wicked fast

Cons: it loves premuim gas and the ass end will go around you real quick

2000 Dodge Dakota R/t — This is for a 2000 Dakota R/T. Performance was a little less than thrilling in stock form. However it takes well to mods and can be a real powerhouse. One of the most important things to do is reflash the PCM for a performance tune. It also handles extremely well. It has 95,000 miles on it now with no major or costly repairs and I don't baby it either. The cost of ownership is a bit much. When I bought it, we were all complaining that gas was $1.50 a gallon. $4 a gallon really changes driving habits with this vehicle. Now that I have it the way I like it, I wouldn't be happy driving any other truck.

Pros: Just too much fun!

Cons: You have to buy gas a lot lol

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.

Pros: Looks awesome, really dependable never leaves me stranded.

Cons: No front recovery hooks, short bed on quad cab models, needs a little more power.
