The best truck EVER!

"This truck is incredible. It has handled everything we've thrown at it from transporting people and animals across the country to hauling landscaping and remodeling materials. We've had both a cap and a soft tonneau cover on it. It is an all around versatile vehicle. And for all the beefiness of this truck, it rides like a car. Total package! I truly can't think of anything negative to say about it."

"I am disappointed they discontinued the Dakota. It's the perfect size. With 114000 miles I've had zero mechanical issues. It even has the original brakes and battery. The rear wheel wells rusted through."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Very dependable and not much in the way of repairs. from 18k to 115k, one brake job, one water pump and 2 batteries. Always had the fluids changed. Oil, trans, coolant, etc. No major mech failures. The creature comforts are not great. It rides rough and the seats could use some more padding. Other than that, Its been a very very good truck!"

"Its to bad dodge didnt do a better quality job, I really liked this truck. Its was a nice truck for the price, but gas miles were poor I cant get better than 14, I have had huge problems with front brakes(cant get more than 5000 miles and have replaced every inch of the system from booster,lines,master,rotors,calipers and still have problems) then the rust on rear bed around the wheel wells shouldnt be their I take great care ,I wash truck 3-4 times a week, and wax 4-5 times a year,I bought it with 50k and now has 82000 miles. other than that I like how it looks,I like the ride,I think I would by another if they still made it."
