1989 Dodge Dakota LE 3.9 Liter V6
Great mileage, great capacity, great truck!
Nothing mechanical. The car was barely driven by the older couple who previously owned it. So it has been garaged much of the time.
The paint job has deteriorated rapidly, as the truck has been exposed to the elements. Beyond that, there is a little rust developing on the doors, but a little rust is expected on a 24 year old truck.
This has been one of the better vehicles I have ever owned. The truck still routinely getting 19 MPG highway. This is excellent for an older truck with a full sized bed. The hauling capacity is really impressive for a truck that drives like a car.
The other thing that astounds me is that the electrical system on this truck has held up over the last 24 years. The truck has every option available during that model year, and nothing has failed over the years. Astounding considering the problems that show up in Dodges in the years following this model year.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
