Dakota's Good Trucks! by Happy in Fargo on 08/16/2010. Trim: 2005 Dodge Dakota Laramie Quad Cab 4WD, Owned 2 years.
2
Pros: This is my fourth Dakota but the others were 2WD. My 90 & 91 were six cylinders and 95 5.2 & this one a 4.7 engine. I like the looks, ride and now the 4WD. I thought I would regret getting rid of the 5.2 but the 4.7 engine has done well. Four wheel drive is a must now. I have always liked the size of the Dakota's since I have not felt that I do not need a full-size pickup all the time. I bought it used with 49K and now have 62k. I have only had a rear axel leak that was easy fix. Like the leather interior, heated seats and the quad-cab. I had the extended cabs before and liked but the quad is the best.
Cons: My 5.2 had a cold weather problem and mechanics could not find the problem. This one has had rough idle that the dealer calls the "4.7 shake." I have lived with it because their reasoning sounded good but now thinking other wise. The dealer has said that Dodge has leaned out the engine to accomodate for the CA emissions standards but thinking they will have to take another look. My previous Dakota's I had to replace the radiators in all three. This one, good so far.
Overall review: Overall, a good truck. I like the looks of the Dakota's and other Dodge trucks.
