Blue dodge Dakota sport 'push pull play', gotta have it anyway!1.

2001 Dodge Dakota Sport

The Dakota sport would not work for large or tall individuals, and would be cramped. I am only 5' tall and is perfect for me. Early on would drive 300 miles a week and was a comfortable ride. This truck has two bucket seats with fold down armrest. I have 239 thousand miles on my truck mainly around town miles and it can get up and go if needed. Knock on wood has never left me stranded. Typical maintenance repairs, belts, water pump, muffler, etc. One issue I did have out the gate was warped rotors under 3,000 miles and recalled. Brakes get hot from use, drive thru cool water thus caused rotors to warp. I love my truck!

4x4 Dodge Dakota Pickup Truck

2001 Dodge Dakota Sport

I love my Dodge Dakota !! Its 4x4 and has great clearance, so it can definitely handle back roads. It's very comfortable, and it looks cool too. Also the 4x4 is easy to turn on and off, without getting out of the truck. It's very reliable, Dodge is a great company. Also I like that it is American made. The only problem is that if I am on the highway in a mountainous or hilly area it can top out at about 50 miles per hour when going up steep hills. But that is because I have the six cylinder engine. There is an 8 cylinder option and honestly I would recommend the 8 cylinder.

2001 dodge Dakota: a dependable vehicle.

2001 Dodge Dakota Sport

My dodge Dakota has close to 250,000 miles. The motor has held up to lots of daily wear and tear. Recently had to replace the radiator due to a small hole rusting in it. I had to replace the alternator about 3 mos ago. Besides those two items, all of the other maintenance has been routine such as oil changes, tire replacement, and so on. Overall I have been pleased with the dodge Dakotas performance.

The money pit, why I keep it, I don't know!

2001 Dodge Dakota Sport

My cat seems to be falling apart at the seams. First the muffler, then the brake pads, then the tires, and last lately a fuel pump. It seems like a money pit, but I still saving for another vehicle. The body if the truck has some cosmetic damage and I also have no headlights. That takes care of driving after dark.

My Dodge Dakota is reliable, very fuel efficient, and perfect for small hauling.

2001 Dodge Dakota Sport

This Dodge Dakota is fine for a small family but I like a larger truck like the ones I have previously owned. The Dodge Dakota is a very reliable small truck, perfect for a young adult or a beginner vehicle. The Dodge Dakota has enough power to satisfy anyone. Repairs are affordable and easily done.

Great truck with options and appeal.

2001 Dodge Dakota Sport

I love my truck. It is comfortable and clean, almost no rust. Power everything which is nice. I also have a bed cover. I like the fender flares, I think it adds appearance to the truck. I also like the bigger tires and rims. I love the color as it is my favorite.
