"Great 4 X 4 truck, a little light on the gas mileage. Tows anything great, air bags and tow package, trailer brakes, oil cooler, transmission cooler along with a tool box. will need some new tires in a few months. White with silver trim and Gray interior and Infinity sound system. Battery is brand new"

Cons: "Typical Dodge tight steerin"

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

"I bought this truck from a friend for a few thousand bucks and it has held its value like crazy. This rig does good off-road as well as on road but the ride is rough (Typical Small Truck) it tows amazingly and hauls good it takes alot to squat it and it is no sweat on slick surfaces. I have the manual transmission and 3.9 liter V-6 and it is fun to drive it looks good inside and out but is hard to find aftermarket performance parts for. I like the clean cut look and deep-throaty sound from the sawed off exhaust i did and it gets alot of looks. It is smallish inside but I am 6' 2'' and i fit in it fine."

Pros: "very reliable"

Cons: "electric windows suck"

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

"Very reliable. Never any engine or trans problems. Small V8 tows well. The worst part about these is the electric windows...in 9 years I replaced 5 or 6 windows, the motors would die. Other than that, very few problems."

"This is a 1999 extended cab, two wheel drive, 860,000 miles and has been a great pickup for me. I used it for both hauling and personal transportation long distance and short in town. Hauls med loads, box size is big enough for everything I haul, 8ft motor cycle (with tail gate down), 4x8 sheets of plywood.The ride is good and comfortable interior. Drawbacks; I have the 3.9 motor which is good for most things but lacks power for pulling med and larger trailers through the hills in the Black Hills. The paint started to fade at about 10 years old. No rust until about 12 years old, and once it started it went fast to all areas. Which is sad that the bode is falling apart but runs great. Gas mileage is fair 15 most of the time but as good as 21."

A blue lemon aka 2000 dodge dakota 3.9

"I bought this truck brand new it was rigorously maintained oil changes every 3000 miles your standard services etc I had to replace the first transmission @ 40000 miles and the second at 80,000 miles all done by the dealership have put in two starters and a alternator my instrument cluster works when it wants to and the dealership can't find the problem and recently it has developed a bad idling problem and half the time won't even start sometimes when I go it will stutter and not even want to move and misfire I have replaced the idle air control valve throttle position sensor air filter spark plugs wires and coil pack as well as the crankshaft position sensor and the fuel pump all which the dealership thought would resolve my problems so far nothing has worked I wouldn't recommend this truck to anybody in the world"
