2004 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab SLT 4.7 liter V8 from North America
Great versatile truck
So far, I only have one gripe with this truck. It has developed a rattle in the drivers side door next to the speaker. It's not bad, just mildly annoying to already have a rattle in a truck not even one year old.
I have been very pleased with this vehicle so far. Power with the V-8 is adequate, but you can really feel the truck strain if you're pulling a trailer. I am able to achieve 18 mpg on the freeway. Also, I wish Dodge would have designed the seats so that they would recline all the way back, instead of just halfway. Also, the Air conditioning seems just a tad underpowered. It takes a few minutes in the summer for the interior to cool off. This may be because of the space in the Quad cab. The truck drives great and is very quiet and roomy. I would have no problem recommending this vehicle to a friend.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with your air conditioning comment. I am disappointed in its performance, too! My Tercel had colder air coming out the vents than a V8 powered truck. Having a full load of people barely gets it comfortable.
