The truck is immaculate. Runs like a sewing machine. Nicely detailed inside and out. Fully loaded with electric everything. A/C is nice and cold. So far Ive driven it 100 miles and I love it. Ive always had great experiences with Dodge vehicles. Would recommend them to anyone.

The only problem I frequently see with vehicle is rust problems, the V8 Magnum is a good engine and the truck itself is small, but sturdy.

Great Truck — The Magnum V* runs great. It takes restraint not to stomp on it. I like that you can fit 5 into the truck comfortably. We found a vintage Aristocrat camper and the Dakota pulls it without any problem. It has been a great all around family vehicle.

Owner for 0 years, 6 months

Primary Use: Family transportation

Miles Driven per Year:10,000

Pros: We have owned the Dakota for over 5 years and have had no problems with it. It handles great in the city and on the highway and the dog smell that came with the truck has disappeared.

Cons: As gas prices rise I would like to experience better gas mileage but for a truck I expect an 18mpg average is reasonable. Another issue is damp carpet on the passenger side. I've tried cleaning the AC drain but it is difficult to get to. Update: Wet carpet on passenger side was due to the short a/c drain tube allowing water to roll back and seep in through the fire wall. Sealing around the drain tube on the outside corrected the problem.

Nice Pick Up — gas mileage is not the best gets about 10 miles to the gallon has a 109,000 miles and tail pipe is a little to loud for me.Great looking pick up gets a lot of attention as you drive along the highways.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks good for a 2003

Cons: it will pass alot of things ,gas station is not one of them

Fun Little Truck — This is a gas eater with the 4.7L but has plenty of towing for such a small truck. Has that beefier look but in a smaller profile too. Box can be hard to haul full sized sheets of construction materials though. Still wouldn't trade it off. Love the little thing.

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

Pros: Towing

Cons: Gas eater

Like This Vehicle. Have Owned This For Over 2 Years. — This truck started out as a plain jane 2003 dodge dakota rt. Mods that have been made to this truck include new headlamps, tail lamps, Dale Jr. Octane wheels, Orange stripes, flowmaster exhaust system, Infinity sound system with 2 twelve inch Infinity Kappa Perfect subs. Panasonic Head unit. This vehicle is not as fast since the new wheels were installed.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Last of its breed.  The RT's were produced from 98-03 handles quite well

Cons: fuel economy at 11 city and 16 highway not very good.
