The Dakota is an excellent choice for a truck
Nothing has gone wrong with it. I've had absolutely no trouble so far given I have only put 9000 miles on it, but every other vehicle I've owned I've usually put a part or two in it by now.
Nice truck, good gas mileage. The 3.9L is a good engine. I had a 1992 Dakota LE as my first vehicle and I missed it so much because of its reliability. I just happened to find one with only 31,000 miles on it. Haven't had a problem yet. I love the interior, and the extra space from the club cab is nice I didn't have that option on my 92 LE. I also like the fact it has the optional 22gal fuel tank rather than the 15gal. All in all a nice truck. I didn't need a 4x4 (whats the point if you're not doing any off-roading?) and I'm not towing anything so I didn't need a V8 either. The V6 Magnum is a good engine, and gets decent gas mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
