Great truck!

I love my Dakota! Aside from the common (and relatively easy to fix) issue of a blown intake gasket this truck has been nearly bulletproof! The only other issues that we have had have been fully explainable as fluke problems caused by extraordinary circumstances. Even the transmission only went out because of very excessive flogging on my part. It’s a damn good looking truck imho. And the only way I will buy another pickup truck is if they make a new Dakota!

Good dependable truck

Only has 85,000 miles and 23 years old =3700 miles a year good to go and keep. Not to brag it serves my needs well and gets me were I'm going most of the time and to come up with 200 characters is impossible being shy and not a long winded talker "So There"!!!!

1997 Dodge Dakota

The vehicle is very durable. It can stand the test. Still running after almost 19 years with no major setbacks. It works, still starts on a dime after 254 and odd thousand miles. I wish the body was as realizable as the inner working parts. Guess it ages like people.

1997 Dodge Dakota SLT

Ordered new as to how I wanted this truck equipped, and has provided me 22 years of dependability and low cost to maintain. Too bad Dodge doesn't build this size of truck any longer because I don't need a full size truck.

Great Truck!

Very dependable. With over 165,000 miles, never left me down! Truck remains in excellent condition both interior and exterior. Sound mechanical condition.
