    Worth Buying For A Project — without the fender flares, the fender begins rusting on the outside. Engine stays solid to any RPM and responds fast. The lower you go, the more miles per gallon. I get 30-35mpg on the interstate. 15-20 city highway.

    Pros: Performance, availabilty, rigidity

    Cons: transmission and O2 issues

    2001 Dakota — I love everything about my truck besides the gas mileage. However this is my first truck so I compare mileage to a car. And I wish it was a V8 instead of the V6. It performs well but could definatly do better with more power.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Milage, engine size

    Small Vehicle With Limited Capabilities — performance- good braking and handling, poor acceleration Build Quality- it overheats when idleing appearance- styling ok but it is pretty plain cost of ownership- great gas mileage and very low maintenance. window doesnt roll up or down cuz the chord broke. its stuck half way down. fun factor- its a manual so it is always fun to drive. it just doesnt go fast enough recommend- if you want a great gas mileage car without the extras, then this is the vehicle for you

    Pros: great gas mileage

    Cons: only two wheel drive

    Great Beginner's Truck! — The truck didn't have very good acceleration, but I think there was something wrong with the engine. It reminded me of a little bug how it was shaped. It was maroon so very pretty. On average, 18 mpg and I have only had to replace rotors and calipers because I jumped a hill hard. This truck isn't exactly fun, but its efficient.

    Pros: Very roomy, heater like an oven, great sound, handles winter conditions decent.

    Cons: Small truck, no engine power.

    2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4x4 Slt — The truck has decent power, a very good ride for a pickup, and impressive interior quality for a Chrysler product and year. It will tow just about anything you can hook to it, but that sends the fuel level needle down pretty quickly. The gas mileage isn't bad for a pickup--about 16 around town and lower 20s on the highway. Maintenance is easy. It's capable as a true work truck or hauling around 5 or 6 people. I would readily buy another. The 4.7L V8 is smooth and refined with good power.

    Pros: Ride, handling, power, reliability, interior fit-and-finish, capability, value

    Cons: Blind spot due to size of A-pillar

    Koto 01 — Overall pretty happy. The V6 is a bit weak and something with more HP would have really improved things. Would replace the tires and breaks since both were fast to wear out. The only real issue i've had so far was that the blower fan went out, however it was under warranty and fixed promptly.

    Pros: Great Looks

    Cons: Weak V6

    Its A Great Little Truck. — Its 2WD with a V6 and a manual tranny. I swapped in a 9 1/4 rear axle last year into it to have the larger brakes and more strength. It gets great gas mileage, has plenty of power, and is great at hualing items.

    Pros: good gas mileage, small yet stronge for its size

    Cons: the V6 is not a V8
