Pros: "trouble free, little cost to maintain"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"V-6 underpowered at times, always reliable, good 4wd system, can carry a heavy load without wandering, I use the 4wd often have done better in bad weather than many full size pick-ups I have had. Starter, water pump have been only repairs other than brakes in 12 years."

The Best small truck made during this time!

Pros: "Efficiency, comfort, durability"

Cons: "weird overdrive button"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I had just got a 1993 Dodge Dakota 3.9L V6, automatic, ext. cab. Very well taken care of. No rust, since it was in SD for most of it's life. For a first vehicle, fuel efficiency is key. The efficiency is great. I am a Ford fan, but when it comes to early 90's small trucks, the Dakota blows them all out of the water. My dad had the same truck, but from '92 and with a stick shift. He ran his to 289,000 miles. Still ran and drove fine, but the body was shot from the winters."

Cons: "Body and interior lackluster"

"Gets me where I'm going most of the time. 318 runs great. Body falling apart but I have seen some newer models even worse than mine. Wish the body would hold up as long as the drivetrain. Not another Dodge in my future."

Pros: "good for hauling stuff, fun to drive"

Cons: "Has no roof linen inside the truck"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"It's a 96 with 127.807 miles on it. It runs great and has been through a couple of upstate New York winters. It handles well in the snow, rain and other hazardous conditions. The 4wd is simply great. Made it from Virginia to New York and from New York to Virginia on multiple occasions with no problems. The gas mileage surprised me too, only had to fill it up at the most twice in a 500+ mile journey between NY and VA. Just need a to fix a few things on it but nothing major but the head gasket."
