The 1995 Dodge Dakota is is one of the best used car investments I have ever made. Don't let the old age fool you, this truck is a beast. It drives so smooth and quiet that you wouldn't even know that it has a V8 in it. The truck has good gas mileage especially given that it's an almost 20 year old vehicle. I paid about three grand for this truck used with 100,350 already on it. Over the past 5 years I put about 108000 miles on it. In that entire time, it never needed any major repairs done. The three things I like most about this truck is that it can take a beating, is easy to repair, and is a very smooth ride. I use my Dakota mainly for transporting heavy equipment to construction sites. It may not be as good as a 2015 model Dakota but it gets the job done. Most of the repairs can... (more)
Story
I took my dodge to a small car show. I got lots of attention and many people made offers to buy it. Apparently, there are less than a few hundred of these specific models made. I ultimately turned them all down, but I felt absolutely wonderful on my drive home.
Pros
It is a smooth ride. The truck runs quiet when taken care of. It is very reliable and rarely has any major problems. Some of the things I love about this vehicle are the V8 engine, the custom Mark lll body kit, and the sporty feel it has when driving.
Cons
The gas mileage could be better. If you don't keep up the maintenance, you will definitely run into major problem Because of its old age. My model is a custom Mark III limited edition. Some of the interior parts like the wood dashboard, and ceiling lights are expensive and extremely hard to find. If you mess up the custom body kit you can forget it. The only way to repair that is to have it custom built at a body shop. Also, I've heard from mechanics that this model is very sensitive to the type of oil you put in it.

I enjoy my Dodge Dakota because not only is it a safe, reliable and sturdy truck, but it has great handling and has awesome pickup. It's a comfortable ride, it is easy to clean and maintain and has plenty of storage capacity. Living in the rural area of the mountains, it is really important that I have a truck that can handle the performance that is required for rugged roads, and the Dodge Dakota not only handles the drive, but seems to have increased performance capacities when taking mountain roads. Don't let that fool you about city driving, though- the Dodge Dakota is just as proud of a steed on urban roads as it is on rural ones. The gas mileage is great as well, I often am getting over twenty-five and over miles to the gallon. One thing that some people might not like as much abo... (more)
Story
I learned how to drive up the steep, unpaved mountain roads nearby with my truck- something I was concerned about, since a few years back I got our van stuck on a similar road. The truck picks up speed pretty fast - it's ready to go, and up the hill it climbs without any problem... But the trick with the hill is to maintain speed and don't slow down unless you have to.
Pros
It has great handling, safe steering, great brakes, lots of storage options, good speakers, a cassette player (love playing my old cassettes) and even has a spot for my sunglasses.
Cons
Smaller size, could have more storage, no tow wench or adequate towing capacity, no grommets for tie downs in truck bed, manual windows and locks, cab light will not go off without lowering interior dimmers.
