"I've only had the truck since November, so take this with a grain of salt. The truck is a bit over priced for the quality from what I see now that I own it. The interior is made with cheap plastic and looks very cheap. The outside is not bad though, looks wise that is. You can hear things rattle though as you drive down on the inside. The seats are comfortable, but the stereo is a bit far away and the cup holder is right under the shifter, so if you're not careful you'll spill your drink easily. The truck has almost no weight in the back and slides around far too much when it's wet or slippery, so you have to drive more cautiously than any other truck I've ever driven. I have the 6 cylinder, which is a big mistake. It's has the power I need, but the gas mpg is awful! I'm very worried about this truck giving me issues down the road, but thankfully Dodge has a 100K power train warranty. The truck has already cut off on me while backing up, so I'm very concerned about issues, considering I am only at 10K miles. Overall, I would probably not recommend this truck and I would instead spend the same amount of money on a better quality Chevy or Ford."
"Got the crew cab V8 laramie pkg. pulls trailer as good as a fullsize truck. Wife can drive it and park easily never had any mechanical problems hiway mpg 20 around town 15mpg thought it would get better love this truck wish they still made them"
"I purchased my truck on an inventory cleanout offer, $21,995. 4X2, Big Horn, Blue Pearlcoat, 6cyl. Better mileage than my former S-10 crew. Not so peppy in acceleration, but this truck is almost as big as a F-150. For the person looking to fancy and all-buttons interior, this is not the truck. I liked it because of the easy to clean plastic interiors. Matched them with seat covers made in leather-like material and is super easy to clean. The stereo and speakers are junk. Replaced them with a bluetooth, DVD and reverse camera headunit, JL speakers and a subwoofer and now the sound is like the most expensive RAM. For not being a 4WD, is a tall truck. I traded a Maxima for this truck because I got tired of expensive cars with fancy interiors requiring lot of care and lot of buttons that mostly had use. The MPG is the same as the Maxima. The reliability has been excellent up today for daily commute and family trips. Not so elegant, but really dont care too mucho of that. As any basic truck, have to be careful driving due to the lack of weight in the back (cause to roll)."
"Brought the last version 2011. I can really say it's a good truck for whatever you want. A weekend get away in the mountains here in Puerto Rico or hauling or towing equipment for work. I'm glad I purchased this truck. It could be a little better on gas but overall it's a winner."
"When I heard Chrysler was going to end production, I quickly ordered. Did not need capabilities of full size truck. But wanted more that compact truck(Ranger). Very pleased with this truck. Tows/hauls all that I have needed. Reliable. Good gas mileage. No problems. If Chrysler resumed building Dakotas, I might consider another one."
