2000 Dodge Dakota Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Dakota
2000 Dodge Dakota quad cab 4x4 truck.
I have a slight problem with the vehicle that it occasionally stalls, but there is no "check engine" light to be able to use a code reader or diagnostic machine to find the problem. Otherwise the vehicle is reliable 4x4 vehicle that I drive mostly in the winter but occasionally when I need to haul people around because it is a quad cab. Everything else (ac, heater, wiper/washer, etc. ) Readily function. Seats, windows, door locks are all manual. Automatic transmission. 4. 7 l engine.
This truck is absolutely dependable. No matter what it can handle most jobs.
I absolutely love my Dodge Dakota. It is a 2 door manual truck, 4 cylinder 2.5L engine. It's great on gas, has enough get up and go for what I need, and it has never let us down. We did have some motor trouble during the winter with a blown head gasket and busted radiator but this can happen during the winter, especially when it is really cold, and can happen to any vehicle. It is a pretty basic truck. No power anything and we installed our own CD player and new speakers.
My truck has been dependable transportation for a very long time.
I bought this truck used in 2001. It only had a few miles on it. I have been driving this same truck since then. If I didn't love it so much I probably would have replaced it a long time ago. I know all the repairs that have been done and where most of the dings have come from. I like it mostly because it is the right size truck for me...not too big, not too small. It has served me well for 17 years.
She's my must have in order to provide for my children, she's my beast!
My Dakota is my work and. Main vehicle. She's a champ with only suspension issues being a major problem due to previous owner collision. She's the 4. 7 v8, I believe smallest v8 Dodge made but I could b wrong. I've owned this truck for at least 8 years and a connecting rod has been bent the whole time but never anything more than an annoying tick. I love my beast.
Amazing buy, great ride! I am in love!
I love having a Dodge Dakota. I have the sport model, and it is very comfortable. The v8 engine is extremely powerful, and almost acts like it has 4 wheel drive even though it does not. It is a great buy. It is efficient on gas, and is perfect for long trips. Out of all the vehicles I have owned, this is by far my favorite.
They are very reliable vehicles I would definitely recommend the Dodge Dakota.
Very reliable, runs and drives great!!Love these trucks, smaller but still has the power. . . Have owned 3 of these Dakotas and would definitely want another one if I had to replace mine. . . The only thing bad about them is the clear coat peels off. . They are all bad for that. . . Have very few problems with the Dakota.
This old gal may look a little rough around the Edges but she gets the job done.
It is very poor to drive in the winter because it is rear wheel drive. We have had to replace almost everything under the hood shy of the motor and the transmission. She is reliable and gets me from a to b, no matter how much she whines doing it. Perfect for a farm runner or a couple. Not very family friendly.
That it is comfortable, compact, and great for mileage.
I like that it is compact and everything is easily accessible from the front seat since I have little ones who need things quite regularly. I like the back of the truck that is enclosed. The only thing that I don't care for is that it is getting old and the coating on the outside is coming off.
Suspension is very notorious for issues. The design for alignments is extremely poor. Rust issues. Otherwise, one of the best vehicles I have ever owned coming from the 2000 era.
I love how reliable it is as a source of transportation. Offers everything I need between passenger space, cargo room, and hauling capability. Makes a single moms life a little easier to get everything done and offers me and my daughter to be self-sufficient in any move, project or crysis.
Continues to survive my abuse.
This truck has taken all my abuse over the years and still runs like a champ. Few mechanical problems that I didn't create myself (driving through 6 ft high pasture grass, dropping off ditches to need a wrecker). Tire replacement, oil changes, etc. I doubt if I'll ever buy anything else.
