All around great truck by Tommy on 06/29/2004. Trim: 1997 Dodge Dakota Club Cab 2WD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: great looking, comfort unmatched in any other mid-sized truck
Cons: the V6 version is just a little weak for the truck,
Overall review: I love this truck, but would recommend the V8 [318 cb in], the V6 I have gets about 17 MPG, I'm told the V8 get about the same while delevering much better performance

First truck -- best truck!! by dakotagirl on 02/05/2004. Trim: 1997 Dodge Dakota Club Cab 4WD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: It's overall a very trusty little truck -- it's perfect for someone who wants a vehicle that starts with no problem in subzero temps and gets you safely around on snowy, icy roads, all without looking too shabby, either. Dodge trucks have a really nice, streamlined look.
Cons: I've had some brake issues, but whether that's related to the truck itself or the company who worked on the brakes, I don't know
Overall review: Dodges are all around great trucks

The Performer by Skip from Atascadero, Ca on 08/07/2003. Trim: 1997 Dodge Dakota Club Cab 2WD, Owned 6 years.
Pros: It is a work horse and has been problem free for the last 135,000 miles. Its easy to get in and out of and very comfy.
Cons: The 5.2 V8 does'nt get very good milage.
Overall review: I,ve had Fords & Cheve's and they don't even come close to the overall performance and relibility of the Dodge.
