2003 Dodge Dakota Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Dakota
It is that safe in all types of weather snow, ice, and freezing rain.
The truck is the most reliable even though it is so aged. We have not had any major problems with it and it is wonderful as long as we do regular maintenance on it. It is very comfortable to drive and right in you do not feel the bumps and it is a 4 wheel drive 4 by 4 so we're able to have other people than just those sitting in the front seat truck. The truck has a c 4 wheel drive cruise control DVD/ tape player which is normal for a vehicle at that year.
My 2003 Dakota 4WD is a reliable truck.
My Dodge Dakota is very reliable, a 4WD with regular maintenance and good fuel mileage. Able to tow and haul. It runs and drives great and with 4WD, able to go in bad weather. I am able to haul things in the back, as well as the room in the back seat. It has been very reliable with regular maintenance and tires. I haven't had any major problems with my Dodge, plus it looks great.
Wouldn't buy again. Breaks down all the time.
This is definitely not a truck I would ever buy again. Not smooth, not as powerful as I had wanted, and most importantly it broke down constantly. Not a reliable truck. The gear shift on the steering column is a little temperamental and requires perfect placement before finding the right gear. Traction on wet pavement and snow is weak when the bed is empty.
Dodge Dakota 4. 7l a true beginner truck.
Nice efficient truck. The 4. 7 motors are not powerful at are and should not b a v8. The fuel pumps go quickly. And I have problems with the evap system. Which turned out to be the evap canister and a bad filler neck but if your looking for a truck for just traveling and not off-road adventures then these trucks are great.
Best truck in the world!!
We love this truck! It easily carries anything we put in the bed of the truck. It also has decent room in the cab and is safe for my daughter's car seat in the back seat! We hardly ever have any issues at all with it! The seats are also very comfy! And its decent on gas mileage for a truck of its size.
Beautiful vehicle to own.
Great vehicle. Good Versatility, off-road capability is great once you get the proper tires. You can also modify the vehicle very easily if you know what you are doing. Also very easy vehicle to learn basic mechanics with. The only bad thing is the electronics are hard to deal with.
Great lines the body style is very attractive.
Reliable, comfortable, perfect size, made in Canada, it is a midsize truck with a matching topper that I had put on, 4 door, all wheel drive, as well as 4 wheel low and 4 wheel high, it has done well towing and on long trips across the country, 4 wheel disc brakes are nice too.
Good all round work and pleasure truck.
Sticking transmission valve. Loss of fuel pressure after sitting overnight. Good pickup and passing speeds. Truck is a four door model with plenty of legroom in front and back seat. Overall performance is good. The gas mileage is not that good. I get about 15 mpg.
Get yearly check-ups on the transmission. It is had problems in the past.
It is a mid size truck, 4 door and it has a v8. We use it to pull trailers. The seats are very comfortable. It gets about 27 miles a gallon. It is my second Dodge and it has never failed me. I have never had a new truck if I did I would pick Dodge.
I think that it is very reliable, however, it does not get great gas mileage.
I really enjoy my truck. I have owned several Dodge Dakota models before. I think the Dakota models are really reliable, and affordable to maintain. It has basic features for a truck built in 2003. It is comfortable and easy to drive.
