1999 Dodge Dakota Sport Ext Cab V6 from North America
Brakes at 55000 miles (had original). Replaced pads with higher quality, dust free expensive kind. About $500 in all.
Fan clutch at 40,000 miles. Quick fix about $50.
Exhaust rattle fixed for free by a mechanic. Just had to move around a plate.
Usual oil changes, belts., filters.
Hum in front - cause, didn't rotate the tires enough.
It was hard to get accustomed to the feel of a truck from a Maxima. I'm a large framed guy and tall. Fits like a glove. Very comfortable especially on roadtrips.
Reliable, fast, powerful. Love it! Great sound system. Not great on wet roads. Should have bought the 4x4 option.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
