2001 Dodge Dakota Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Dakota
I like the truck, could care less about the salesman.
I brought my truck at northwest ride a month ago. Know I was going to have problems with the power steering, because it leaked at the time. They promised new tires for the rear of the vehicle, here it is one month and several calls later and I am still waiting on. Stopped in and talked with the manager. He gave me his card and said if they didn't call me by the next night I was to call him. Well it is then next night, and no call. So I called the manager within business hrs, no answer. That is going to keep the customers coming, right.
Dodge Dakota. Worthwhile pre owned truck.
I am really happy with this truck. I bought it used and in great shape. Although by now it has some rust in the bed thats not looking good. It is however a comfortable ride with enough room for the family. One issue is with the computer where the truck will sometimes stall when going in reverse or while moving very slow. Not sure if that was something previous owner did or not. Other than that its a solid vehicle.
The 4 wheel-drive in the snow here in Colorado is excellent.
The vehicle was new in 2001. Only problem I had with it was the heads. They wore out after 130k and had to replace them. Other than that the truck has been excellent. The interior is very comfortable. The air conditioning works excellent. The suspension and brakes are perfect. . I have not had any problems with the vehicle. One recall for ball joints in 2006 but the was corrected and it has treated me perfectly.
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.
It is a good size and it is reliable.
I like that it has a v8 in it, I like how high it sits, and I feel safe in it. It can hold a decent amount of material. I do not like that the front end is old and worn out, so that when we hit a bump in the road, the steering wheel is almost pulled out of my hands and it becomes very difficult to handle..
2001 Updated Dodge Dakota.
Equipped with 235 horsepower 4. 7 Liter v8, quad cab, manual transmission, 5. 3 Foot non slip lines bed. Runs great. Good power. 15 Miles per gallon city, 20 to 21 miles per gallon on the highway. Black exterior, matching black cloth interior. Aftermarket stereo, rancho XL 9000 front and rear shocks.
Reliability is great m, but the comfort is not.
The vehicle is not meant for a tall person. I am over 6 feet and it is very uncomfortable. The seats do not go far back, and it becomes hard for me when pressing in the clutch. Other than that, the reliability of the car is very good. Does not squeak, make funny noises or any of those bad symptoms.
I just love the fact it is a standard.
My Dakota is a basic 5-speed. It handles really well is the v8 gets about 20 miles to the gallon but for truck that 17 years old I do not feel like that is real bad. It is a four-door full backseat. The steering wheel is adjustable and it comes with cruise control which is great for long trips.
