The seats are very comfortable in the front.

2000 Dodge Dakota Base

My truck runs at a okay type level. The A/C compressor has gone out on it. Which is horrible because I live in Arizona. The oil Pressure drops whenever it feels like it but it has never stalled. The passenger Window has gone out. Besides that it's pretty reliable. It has always gotten me where I need to go and gets pretty good gas. The paint is a little faded which is okay. It's actually quite comfortable in the inside. If this truck had been kept up to date. It would still be a very nice truck.

My Pretty Blue Dodge that the whole family can fit in.

2000 Dodge Dakota Base

I Love my Dodge except for the mechanical issues I've been having lately. However it is normal wear and tear for as many miles as it has on it. The transmission has been replaced, it has a full back seat, 4 doors and I do love my truck. Especially the color, it's a pretty blue to match my eyes. The worst thing is the gas mileage compared to my car but I still drive my truck everywhere!

Oldie but goodie & runs like a champ

2000 Dodge Dakota Base

It has lasted a very long time, has never given me any serious issues other than maintenance. The engine runs well, no road noise from outside. I would definitely buy another one. Now they have nicer colors to choose from as mine is a little older but still drives very well.

Needs lots of repairs to stay on the road

2000 Dodge Dakota Base

truck has constant minor problems, no get up and go and gets awful gas mileage no matter what I do. I spend an awful lot of time replacing small things to keep this truck on the road. I don't rely on this vehicle as a primary vehicle but use it as a farm truck.
