    I Love My Truck — I really like my truck. Crew cab is the only way to go. Fun to drive with manual trans. I like the look of the 2nd Gen Dakotas alot more than the ugly new ones. Really awesome truck. The only thing I wish is that there were more aftermarket parts (like lift kits and performance chips) available.

    Pros: Prefect size.  Gas milage not too bad

    Cons: V6 isn't the most powerful.

    Great Truck For Bad Weather, Have A Big Bank Account For Fuel Costs — I loved this truck. Comfortable fabric bucket seats, plenty of leg room for taller people in front and back, V8 magnum definitely adds some get-up-and-go, rides higher which is good for flooding or high-snowfall areas, 4WD makes driving in snow easy, Linex spray-in bedliner is indestructible, taneau cover is a slide-on version, no snaps, which is much better. Only draw back is the 14 mpg city/18 mpg highway.

    Pros: Very durable, sits high, comfortable ride

    Cons: Terrible gas mileage (about 14 mpg in city)

    Would Buy Another One — great gal truck fits everything and more in the back takes passengers the dogs groceries and great long driving pickup

    Pros: V6 should have got the 8 giddy up is a wee bit slow!

    Cons: the mailboxes that keep hitting it!

    2wd Kota Blue — its the coolest blue truck that I know of. It rides like a beauty and for a Dodge vehicle, it stands it's own. It has good mpg and and off the highway. Includes window tint and tilt wheel. After Christmas, upgrades will appear. Most likely a better air-intake, bigger wheels, shock absorbers and bedliner

    Pros: good mpg, blue, rides smooth

    Cons: V6, not as big as a Ram

    Too Many Issues Too Soon — The truck I like but the problems it has had already just shouldn't be...water leaking into passenger floor-board, water pump replaced, power steering hose, and now a thermostat. I think I'll sell it...

    Reliable And Capable For A General Use Vehicle. Good For A College Student — Good 4x4, good power. decent pulling for a midsize truck. just about 120,000 and very few issues. 4.7 V8 has a nice rumble with a dynomax exhaust. Decent fuel mileage on highway. Looks good, simple interior. I enjoy driving it. Handles the larger tires well, doesn't take much extra power to turn them.

    Pros: ability to handle alberta winters, especially drifted backroads. Decent highway fuel mileage.

    Cons: doesn't like to shift into overdrive in colder weather, and tailgate doesn't like to stay close in the cold
