This Truck looks very nice. The body has no rust, however parts have been painted do to typical Dodge paint defects. It has never left me stranded anywhere, when parts fail there is usually warning, or else the vehicle still runs, just not to its utmost. Most of the repairs I've done are routine maintenance issues to be expected with the high mileage the truck has. It has server me well through high school and all through college and doesn't seem to want to kick the bucket quite yet. The power is a bit to be desired, but the overall ride is smooth and comfortable. It has outlasted many friends s-10's and rangers in the looks and mileage departments.

Okay, so you CLEARLY had a Dakota that has been treated poorly. Any vehicle will become a terrible vehicle if it is not taken car of. People laugh at how much I baby my cars, but I know that it'll stay in good shape as long as I own it that way. The owner of the vehicle, is just as important to quality of the vehicle, as the vehicle itself.
