It is the right size for the interior and exterior . It hold 5 people and haul a decent amount of weight .

It is the size not too big and not too small . It is the right height for me to get in and out of . The bed of the truck is big enough to haul whatever I need . The engine performs well and the vehicle rides and handles well . The only problem I have is the paint job which is fading and peeling . Wish dodge hadn't dropped this model .

Reliability is key with my dodo.

Haven’t had any problems drivability wise. The truck does have a problem with rust on the rocker panels. My truck have the clarion upgraded radio collection. Performance is great the 3. 9 Is very peppy and provides great power. It is also the sport version with upgrades suspension and the interior is very different.

This Dodge Dakota will get you anywhere you need to go.

I love my Dodge Dakota extended cab. It is a 4WD, five-speed manual transmission with hand-crank windows. My primary complaint is the Power Control Module and the EMP. I have had to replace those TWICE in the three years I have owned it. Whoever thought computers were a good idea in vehicles should be shot.
