- No longer an economical or affordable truck
As the very satisfied owner of a 2001 Dakota Sport 4-cylinder that has consistently delivered 22 mpg average fuel mileage I checked out the new 2006 Dakota. It is no longer a practical or affordable choice in a small or midsize truck. With no regular cab option, no fuel efficient engine available, and styling that can only be described as hideous, I'll be going back to the Ford Ranger for my next small truck....read morehide

- It's a sharp looking truck. At least I didn't get the 06 which is hideous by comparison!
- Just turned 10k miles and I'm on my 3rd set of front rotors due to warpage, and corp policies
I had to jump thru hoops to get them to honor the warranty on the 3rd set (counting orig) @ approx. 6800 miles of pampered driving. Their reason for denial, it was caused by road conditions, or my driving habits. LOL I live in So. CA 2 mi to work, best roads in the nation...This is a truck right? Of course when we pay for brake service you can't replace pads w/o turning the rotor because their mating wear parts. When Dodge does warranty work they replace only item in question, in this case warped rotors. Three sets of rotors and the original pads (dbble stds?), of course they squeal like you can't believe and after picking it up for warranty replacement of the pads, all I got was the same squeal and a printout of why brakes squeak, well they didn't squeal before they replaced half of the parts. There's more, but bottom line. The response from the district manager for cust. complaints. "As a good will gesture we'll replace the rotors and pads one last time but no longer honor the warranty for the entire braking system." Forgot to say I had to pay a $20 c0-pay last time so the warranty would be on the dlrshp not Mfg. thats 2 they screwed me on. Cost of pads to them...$40 maybe, and a right off. end result. Cost of a repeat customer...You do the math, don't use Dodge math though!!!...read morehide

- Looks great inside and out, comfortable ride, worth the money
- Wish it got better gas mileage, but 16 MPG not bad
I bought this one month ago, and it is the best vehicle I have owned. Everything is great about it. For a 3.7L V6, it has good power...210 hp. Better than the Tacoma!!

- Roomy interior and good ride
- Gas milage with v-8
Had less than a month been in the shop twice and still has problems. I bought new foreign autos sence 1976 with no troubles and with this JUNK I learned my lession. Never again.

- Much smoother and quieter than the previous dakota, great interior
- 4 wheel ABS is an option
I bought a 4x4 Quad Cab V8 about a month and a half ago. So far I love this truck it rides and handles great and it fits in undergroud parking garages without any issues. I can put adults in the back seat with a straight face. For a truck it is pretty quiet especially compare to my previous 2003 Dakota. The interior fit and finish is very good and I have been getting around 20 MPG 50/50 mix of city and highway on regular unleaded. I would highly recommend that any one looking for a four door pickup take a look at the Dakota....read morehide
