1992 Dodge Dakota Sport 3.9L from North America
Nice mid-size truck
On my third windshield - got a bug deflector, seems to help. Distributor shaft broke at 90K. Very small motor oil leak, a drop or two a day. Loses a pint between oil changes (smoke out the exhaust) when you get on the gas. Running about 17 mpg, I do lots of freeway driving though. Paint flaked off, sent truck to Maaco and Line-X'd the bed, truck looks great now. Fuel gauge hasn't worked since I bought it, nor has the temp gauge. Fixed poor cabin heat by back-flushing the heater core. Speedo still works, but the odometer went out a couple of weeks ago. Small leak on pass. floorboard when it rains a lot, but not enough to worry about. I get a rattling sound on the passenger side (glove compartment?) that I can't pinpoint just yet.
Generally have been happy with this truck and am using as a daily driver. Wished mine had tilt steering, everything else seems to be holding together pretty well.
Grateful for various sites on the web with technical info. Handles well and only smokes when I really get on the gas, probably needs rings. Seats holding up well as is the dash.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
