Why the 2007 Dodge Dakota?

Interior styling

Fit and finish are clean and appear very well designed. I had my truck for 4 years and it was used quite hard and the interior held up perfectly, not a snag or tear in the fabric. The floor mat did tear out the little hook that holds it in place though.

Quietness

Very quiet ride on all road surfaces with the factory tires. Vehicle curb weight is over 4K so Im sure this had something to do with that.

Materials & workmanship

Materials and workmanship seemed top notch. Durable and the plastic parts were good quality and not to flimsy.

Exterior styling

Thickness of the steel warded off dents and hail pretty well. Paint was excellent quality and in 4 years of south Texas summers and winters, there was no sign of fading or oxidation. Plastic headlights became fogged within the first year.

Audio & nav systems

Stereo system sounds great and has MP3 input. I had no navigation system.

Why Not the 2007 Dodge Dakota?

Fuel economy

HORRIBLE. EPA rated for 17city 20hwy but due to transmission problem, I doubt I exceeded 20mpg on most occasions.

Ride smoothness

Appeared to have rough ride on most surfaces with factory tires. Could have also been the horrible streets here in San Antonio...

Past personal experience

Treated very badly by Dodge corporation regarding transmission problem complaint. Was insulted and when told that I would never buy another Dodge, they asked why they should stand by me (warranty) if I wont stand by them. I kid you not..
