            A small truck with a big truck feel.

            2006 Dodge Dakota ST

            My Dodge is very reliable, It has 198,000 miles on. It has the 4.7 liter engine which is pretty powerful for its size. I get about 28 mpg with it. It's pretty roomy for a mid size truck, with me my wife and our dog we still have plenty of room. The Dakota has a really nice smooth ride for a truck.. It has a cloth interior, with split bucket seats which are roomy and comfortable, we could actually fit 3 people up front and still be comfortable. When the time comes, I certainly will buy another Dodge pick up..

            Great little truck, hauls and tows with ease. Short bed.

            2006 Dodge Dakota ST

            My truck is very reliable, it is right at 200,000 miles and runs like a top. It is great in the snow, drives easily and I drive across the state about every 3 months with no problems. The seats are ok for me. It does not have a great radio, the CD player does not work and I only have 1 speaker left but it is 13 years old.

            Great investment, dodge Dakota

            2006 Dodge Dakota ST

            It runs like a dream, the passenger window fell into the door. Air conditioner leads but still works. Really good on gas, really roomy. Love that the bed is covered. As long as it's taken care of, it will last. So happy I got it. Would definitely recommend getting one.

            Dodge Dakota 2006. Reliable, comfortable, but bad gas mileage.

            2006 Dodge Dakota ST

            Bad mileage but great relatability. I love the four wheel drive option and it is very spacious. The truck fits six people comfortable. It handles well on the road in rain, shine, or even snow. I live in Iowa so it is the perfect vehicle to have. Get a dodge.
