It is a very good starter vehicle.

2001 Dodge Dakota Base

I have had to get a new radiator for the truck, and get a few minor issues fixed including having a few heads reworked. It was more money than the vehicle is worth in my opinion. Oil changes are extremely important for the motor. Every 3,000 miles is recommended no matter what. Had I taken better care of the vehicle, I would not have experienced these issues.

Solid little base model truck.

2001 Dodge Dakota Base

My Dakota has been a solid truck. Great for light hauling and getting around town. No unexpected mechanical problems, just routine maintenance. There is not much space in the cab but that was a personal choice. The ac and heat have never given me any problems.

It is a very pretty white and it has a personalized license plate.

2001 Dodge Dakota Base

It does pretty good but it would be nice to have something better. I really enjoy trips but it takes a lot of gas and it is very expensive to fill up. I would love to have better gas mileage so I can go longer distances before having to fill up my tank again.
