"Love the truck.Plenty of power for towing.poor gas milage 18 mpg tops with 4.7 liter.Ride has improved since my last dakota 1992 but it still rides like a truck.Zero problems, My 92 had 157000 miles and still had zero problems ,I expect to get 200000 or more out of my 2005."
"I had a 05 SLT Club Cab and I really enjoyed it. Only issues with it was the 3.7 engine. Not enough power.
I just bought the 2007 Dakota Laramie Quad and have the 4.7 V8 Flex. Plenty of power, leather and Satellite radio with Alpine speakers. Ride is a little bouncy due to larger All Terrain Tires. Fuel mileage isnt too bad. Overall it is a great truck and would recommend highly.
The lifetime warrenty on drivetrain and Engine is great."
"Gas mileage is biggest complaint, but what do you expect. I have the cloth seats, which are fine, especially with the heated seats option for the winter. It rides a little rough for my wife, but overall it is a great truck and would recommend to anyone looking for full/mid size truck."
"I got the ST quad cab and it is very basic inside and out, but it's a 4x4 and has tremendous power. With that being said, the gas mileage is very poor at best. The only time I get even close to 20MPG is on the interstate."
"My '06 Laramie only has 4400 miles on it. Gas millage in town is poor avge 12.5 mpg and about 17-18 on hwy. Good power. I don't like the jittery response I get when going over bumps on street. Also feels like wheels out of balance at around 63 mph. They say its all normal because of suspension design. Not sure I buy that. Otherwise, I like the truck."
