OUR BEAUTIFUL DODGE TRUCK

"OWNED BY SENIOR CITIZENS. WE ARE THE 2nd OWNERS OF THIS VHEICLE, BOUGHT IT WHEN IT WAS 4 YEARS/46,000 MILES OLD FROM ORIGINAL OWNER. OUR 2002 DODGE DAKOTA QUAD-CAB-PLUS HAS BEEN A GREAT TRUCK FOR THE MONEY. GREAT DRIVABILITY, EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE TO DRIVE. PLENTY OF INTERIOR ROOM. 12 YEARS OLD ALWAYS GARAGED NO RUST WHATSOEVER! ALWAYS PAMPERED AND MAINTAINED. WE JUST HAD IT PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED AND DETAILED AND IT STILL LOOKS LIKE IT JUST ROLLED OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE. CHANGE THE OIL & FILTERS EVERY 4,000 MILES"

Stylish and sexy.

"This is a truck that you can trust. I have never had engine trouble, or have ever been on the side of the road. This truck has all the towing and power capacity I have ever needed. You can turn the key and it roars to life, pumping through a 5.2 V8 engine. The only problems are the water pump leaks, the rear fender has a huge dent, the passenger side mirror and rear passenger window is missing. Although the minor cosmetic issues it sports a sexy king bed cover, that saves on fuel costs. The truck has a k&n air filter system that gives it more horse power!"

"Second owner of this truck, had 18K when I bought it in Feb of 1999. (1998 model). Mostly used to tow a tent trailer or an 18 foot boat. Also occasional commuter. Great truck, never let me down and always had plenty of power to do what I wanted to do. The 318 Magnum is a very good engine, always stated on the coldest mornings and handled the heat of summer well. Fairly easy to work on (maintenance) and parts easy/fair price. Before a long trip, I had the all the fluids changed at a Texaco quick service center and they forgot to re-fill the transfer case. I drove it about 3K miles before it blew up. (that business is gone now) Only two complaints: The sliding rear window leaked (bad) and I had to pull the interior out to let it dry. After doing this twice, I shut the window and sealed it with silicone. Will say pulling the interior out was not too bad a job. The Magnum does NOT like cheap gas. It runs on mid grade and you can feel the difference between Arco and Chevron/Shell or Texaco. I do not put Arco in it, rather pay a couple of bucks more and get the performance. Overall, after 15 years of ownership, it has been a great truck. Time to step up to a Dodge Cummins 2500 to pull the camper we want for retirement. I will miss it."

Pros: "PAYLOAD, DRIVE SYSTEM, POWER, SIZE"

Cons: "Not made any more (STUPIDEST "Mopar" decision ever"

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

"Have had since new. Of the MANY vehicles I've owned over last 50 yrs, all-in-all this is tops! Beyond great reliability, these things set it apart: 1. PAYLOAD: Factory-equipped 1700# Payload (more than many "full size" p/u's). Carries 1300# slide-in pop-up, towing 1000# boat/trl, only squatting 1-2" on rear axle. 2. DRIVE SYS: Full-time 4WD/"AWD" w/ limited-slip Diff. and elec/ 4HI & 4Lo is perfect for my climate and on/off-road use, & only costs 1-2mpg. (Why Dodge dropped option w/ 2005 Dokata "update" (HAH!) is unfathomable!) 3. SIZE: Extra 4" between rear wheels (44" vs "toy" p/u's 40") make big difference, but can still easily park in garage & smaller turning radius than "full-size" p/u's. 4. POWER: W/ higher ratio diff. option, 4.7V8 has plenty torque. Handles grades under load fine."
