Good value, nice size, dependable by Miss Annie on 05/11/2013. Trim: 2011 Ram Dakota Bighorn/Lonestar Crew Cab 4X4, Owned 1 year.
Pros: rides well for long highway trips, 4/door cab good space for "stuff" and large dog, sits up high enough for good sight lines, large enough for basic needs without being too big for old lady like me to handle and maneuvers well. Was very unhappy to learn they stopped making the middle size Dakota model, glad we managed to find one.
Cons: wish it had larger side mirrors for easier to back up, bucket seats a bit skimpy for big guys with broad shoulders size 52 jacket, hard to see over nose of the hood to judge where is front edge of bumper in a tight spot. Terrible gas mileage around town, does OK with highway. 4WD is good but could sit up a bit higher for better clearance in deep snow
Overall review: Good truck, good value, good choice for us 2 old retired people, glad we got it. my Father had a trucking company many years and he always had Dodge trucks for cargo vans, pickups and box trucks, found them to be dependable, sturdy and long lifespans. Prior one lasted us 17+ years. My former employer had a fleet of small vans and trucks, fleet manager said the Dodge outlasted all the other brands at least 3 to 1.

Dakota by Parker from Tustin,CA on 02/09/2013. Trim: 2011 Ram Dakota Bighorn/Lonestar Crew Cab 4X2, Owned 2 years.
Pros: power from the 4.7L and the 5 speed auto, overall looks and style.
Cons: City mpg, comfort of the seats. Rattle in the dash that the dealer can not locate.
Overall review: This is an excellant small truck. The 4.7L gets good mpg on the hiway if you use speed control.
