Old Dodge's still got it.

Solid vehicle. Both Dakotas I have owned have served me reliably. Bought the 2006 used four years ago with very low mileage. The only issues I have had are routine maintenance issues that would already have been handled at 50k and 100k checkups if my vehicle had hit those benchmarks yet. Gas mileage could be better, being an older truck I get slightly under 300 miles to a tank when doing city driving. Have made a couple long trips and get 330 or so highway. Ride is smooth in all conditions. Backseat of the cab is roomy for storage, but not really conducive to having an extra passenger for very long distances.

- Frank J

Reliable, sound work small truck.

It has 106,000 miles on it and is the TRX 4x4 package. I have owned it for about 2 years and have had no serious issues with it. It does have rust in top of fender wells on both sides in the rear. I have noticed a lot of this same truck by Dodge has rust there as well. Mechanically sound and besides the rusted areas, a clean looking vehicle.

- Michael P

Best truck I have ever owned.

I bought my truck brand new in 2006 it's got over a hundred eighty thousand miles on it even though I have been terrible at keeping up with maintenance I rarely ever see a light come on the dash to tell me that something is wrong there have been a few check engine lights but they only told me about spark plug I need to be changed
