"It's impossible to get a vehicle to run for 20 years." That's a slightly paraphrased quote from my grandmother regarding the quality of vehicles at the time. Given the sheer amount of 1990s and 1980s cars that I still see on the road, it's safe to say that she was wrong. It's very possible. However, many of those vehicles are not happy about their extended lives. From the '90s era, econoboxes with fading paint and yellowed headlights to the '80s land yachts with the rusting bodies and wheels that lost their hubcaps long ago, the signs of aging and failure are there. Unless they've been well maintained, as the years pass and the miles rack up, problems start developing. Surprisingly, it's almost never the engine that fails first. The engine may have problems, but it still runs. No, it'... (more)
Story
I found a set of snow tires that would fit my truck for cheap on Craigslist. Even without four-wheel drive, having snow tires makes even 6+ inches of snow on the roads not an issue. I was happily passing many stuck cars and dodging idiots on the road who grossly overestimated their own winter driving capabilities.
Pros
Always starts, even on the coldest days. Excellent heat and cold A/C. Interior is decent and makes replacing the stereo and speakers rather easy. 2000 was the last year for the early 2nd-gen. Dakota interior. While 2001 and later models have an updated interior, I find the '97 to 2000 Dakota interior to be easier to work with. Parts are plentiful at pick and pull yards near where I live.
Cons
The rust. Early 2nd generation Dakotas have a serious issue with body rust. I'd even say it's recall worthy, not that that's going to happen this late into the game. 2001 and newer Dakotas and their Durango counterparts seem to fare a little better. That tells me Chrysler knew there was a problem and did something to make it better. Head gasket leaks. Floor pan rust, which was not fun to repair. The 5.2 V8 versions suck gas like it's water. Odd six lug bolt pattern makes finding spare wheels difficult.

I owned a Dodge Dakota for over ten years. I bought it as a hand-me-down from my dad, who had taken pretty good care of it for several years. It drove beautifully, even though it was a pickup, it still had maneuverability, great pickup (0-60) and was not an incredible gas hog, although it did eat more gas than a car. I used her for more than five different moves from house-to-house, dragging anything from washers and dryers to couches with no problem at all. In fact, I have to comment on the four-wheel drive, which helped me in the very worst of snow conditions. I can recall one time when I pulled a police car from a snow-filled embankment with very little trouble at all. I had a lined bed, which also helped in keeping the truck looking great while hauling anything from groceries to s... (more)
Story
I took her to the beach, where she powered through sand dunes with the ease of a tiger. She was awesome at the beach, never getting stuck, practically driving into the surf and back out with no trouble at all.
Pros
Great 0-60 speed, incredible horsepower, four-wheel drive in slick conditions, wonderful looking, gave you a bird's eye view of the road, and intimidated other drivers into getting out of the way. I can't say more good things about the Dakota. She looked great and drove well for 20 years and continues to be a workhorse today. Also, I should mention, that it was very easy to work on her engine, the underside was quite easy to get to, and working on the wheels and undercarriage were a breeze.
Cons
The Dakota was a little bit of a gas hog. She was not for short or even long, really. IF you wanted to go out for groceries every day or drive her to back and forth to work, you might choose something a little more environmentally friendly. I saved her for the real jobs, like moving things, which is where she shined.
