Great midsize truck with a sleek body.

2001 Dodge Dakota SLT

The truck is very spacious and comfortable on long drives. There are a lot of cup holders and compartments to store things. The full backseat is comfortable for passengers. The bed is a bit on the shorter side. The interior and exterior are very sleek and beautiful. The motor is a v8 4.7 that is dependable and strong. I have towed trailers with it multiple times. It is perfect as a midsize truck. The transmission is also really nice. I think it is a 4 speed automatic. It is been reliable all the years of owned the truck. It is just an old truck and I am ready for an upgrade.

Dodge Dakota excellent power

2001 Dodge Dakota SLT

I enjoy the midsize the Dakota offers. The power of the truck has remained consistent through the years. I have, however had to replace the computer three times. The paint would be the only real complaint I have. One would think that Dodge could have used the paint that would not peel off. I have seen many other Dodge trucks with the same issue as I have with the paint. I would love for Ram to remake the Dakota.

Family Truck, Great Room.

2001 Dodge Dakota SLT

I love my truck. I love that I have room in the back for me and my children. I don't like that the driver seat sits awkwardly to where it's hard to see traffic lights when stopped. My car also has a leaking power steering line but It's very durable and I do love it.

Bought in 2011 used. Had few minor maintenance repairs. Passenger window which is electric got stuck open. Had to get repaired. Good gas miles. Good on oil. Nice bed liner came with it. Nice tinted windows. No major problems. Very comfortable inside.
