"I mainly drive in the local area and shopping for groceries etc. I wanted an expanded cab so the groceries and other shopping items could be placed in the cab on a seat. I did take 4 trips mainly interstate to Arizona and another to the Southern states. The air conditioner even as a 9 year old vehicle is very good, all the bells and whistles work fine, Windows, power seat and cruise control. The MPG around area abt 20 mpg and the long trips average 25 MPG. This vehicle is a Club cab model and 6 cylinder automatic. Wish they would again make this mid size vehicle. I am retired and do not need a full size vehicle. Have enjoyed the vehicle very much. Just waiting to update, but leaning again toward a midsize pickup."

"Bought new 2006 with V8 Auto. Many people were surprise I purchased a Dodge truck because of perceived poor reliability and transmission issues. Well the truck drives great, has good power, and looks nice. I use it as a daily driver and for home improvement projects. Replaced brakes, ball joints, tires, & radiator. Rust around rear passenger wheel well. Not too bad for 10 year old vehicle and it should last another 10 years. Too bad Dodge discontinued this model and I hope they bring it back."

Cons: "Body rust through, steering ratio too aggressive."

"Engine/drivetrain are good. Forward visibility isn't very good. Steering is way too quick for a truck. The body quality is alright if you don't mind early rust through, especially around right rear fender. Had several Dakotas and regret trading my 1995 for this one."

"I have had this truck since new. traded in a regular cab for the quad when the twins arrived. Raised them in this truck. Totally reliable, never had a problem. Did regular oil changes and preventative maintenance and it paid off. All I would change is having leather seats instead of the cloth. The front seat look almost new, but the back seat where the girls lived is really stained."
