Asked by Apr 21, 2015 at 09:43 PM about the 2005 Dodge Dakota

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The dodge i owned before was a great truck until you had to buy a part, I'm
curious on the expense of working on a Dakota. I know all vehicles can be
expensive at times but Dodge beat them all. Will they still hurt your feelings to
work on them is my concern.

I have found that they are no different than any other vehicle to work on. If you have a wrecking yard nearby where you can pull parts and do your own wrenching, they are a good deal. I do most of the work on my Dakota and have no problem with the costs. OBTW, I am retired and on a fixed income.
