"I have owned a lot of trucks in my life ( I am 59)and this one far exceeded my expectations for dependability. The body really surprised me - it is 13 year old Pennsylvania everyday driver, & has just now started to show rust ! The AC still works great too..... That afte 230,000 miles.................... what could anyone complain about :)"

"I've owned my 2004 Dodge Dakota crew cab 4wd since 2005. This is a great truck! It rides like a car, and the 4.7L Magnum V-8 has plenty of power. The only con is the gas mileage. Without my fiberglass cap on, I can get 18 MPG. With the cap on I only get 15 MPG. I would definitely recommend this truck to anyone looking for a solid truck with a comfortable ride."

Pros: "Great 4WD; handles better than many sedans."

Cons: "Major cons are fuel consumption & poor front brake"

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

"Only complaints are the truck was designed & built with undersized front disc brakes; overall unacceptable fuel mileage, but then Dodge/Chrysler tend to run behind the pack for MPG. Overall best feature for me is the unbeatable 4WD; can run in 4WD at highway speeds and has never failed or disappointed me. The rear drums/shoes have never needed replacement. Just found first minor rust spot on rear fender last year; minimal surface rust on leading edge under bed and tailgate has some rust. Truck was rust-proofed when new and has been kept seriously cleaned & waxed. ALL painted surfaces have always been waxed. Looked at a friends 2007 Dakota today and was shocked at how the rear fender wells are rusting out!"

Pros: "It goes everywhere with 2x4 or 4x4 low, 4x4 high."

Cons: "no power locks or power windows"

"2003 Dodge Dakota 4x4 quad cab. Engine has 101,000 miles. Engine had recent tuning with new battery, spark plugs, rotor/cap, oil change, one fuel injector replaced. Running on 5 cylinders whereas #2 cylinder requires change of burned valve. Rest of the truck in decent shape. Some rust on both back sides. If you are a mechanic or have a trusted shop. It would take less than a week of shop time to replace the valve."

"This 4x4 midsize truck has been great! It took 9 years before I had to replace the battery. The front brakes were replaced at 70,000 and I still do not need rear brakes. There is full time AWD and in 4-wheel drive with high and low it will go just about anywhere."

Pros: "Good mileage, and very dependable"

Cons: "Not alot of leg room. Small rust areas"

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

"I've owned my 2003 Dakota since May of 2014. It's a standard cab, 4x4, with the 3.9 Liter engine and 5 speed transmission. It's been very reliable. Runs great in the snow. I had to replace all 4 brake rotors and pads as well as purchase new tires. Other than having to replace a broken top radiator hose, I've not done anything mechanical to it. The original owner(I'm the 2nd owner) told me that he had never changed to clutch, which still works very well. The only notable rust is on the rear wheel tubs themselves. They have a hole on the verticle part where it meets the bed floor. Which is a bit weird, considering the only other rust is along the bottom of the driver's door. The interior is pretty comfortable, for a mid-size truck. Having had multiple back surgeries, I would love to have a full-size pickup again. The mileage isn't too bad nor is it great. It averages 16-17 mpg locally and 18-19 mpg on the open highway. Compared to my old Dodge Ram, it's great! The engine lifters are a bit weak and tick slightly. Overall, it's been a very good truck."
