2006 Dakota 4x4 6cyl 3.7 is not a bad truck. Engine runs strong and long.
Auto transmission the same. Bad thing is I've rebuilt the front end suspension 2x now, never use 4WD. Reasonable cost when you do it yourself but VERY COSTLY if done by a shop.
Came in on a Saturday looking for a new truck. Traded in my 03 duramax with 330k miles was thinking I was only going to get maybe 2grand but they gave me 3,500 for my trade in and within a few hours I was driving off the lot with my new love! Would definitely recommend them!
Very Solid Truck

This is almost the perfect sized truck. I do not have a need for those big monstrosities that inhibit the highways now. Wish they went back to making this size once again.
Love working with Ron St. Peter excellent seller and bought multiple vehicles under this wonderful guy always provides the best help and always finds me something that will be a part of my life in the long run. No matter your situation, low credit high credit, good credit. Ron will do his best to get you in a vehicle you love. Thank you for everything Ron you are amazing. From Carlos Garcia.
Solid work truck. Excellent on the hiway.

Love the styling. Solid truck with plenty of power. Cruises nice on the highway. Looks great! Very nice interior controls. Solid body. Well built vehicle.
Contacted salesman Mark Pain about a used car I saw for my daughter. He was fantastic to work with, provided a very easy purchasing experience, and even worked with the service department so I could examine under the car. The car was nice and a fair deal.
best of them all

always liked the dodge, runs great, hauls a lot, comfortable for the long ride, pulled a small 5th wheel all over the country, no trouble, good on gas, plenty of room for all our stuff & dog
I have like this because of previous Dakota I have owned. My new / used 2011 has a good motor suspension , more updates needed for interior accommodations . Needs help with aerodynamic styling and updated headlights fog lights . Hopefully the new model coming out will be better in suitable I’m sure at a better price than competitive brands .
I have had my Dakota for over fifteen years now a.

The Dakota has exceeded my expectations in more ways than one. This is the reason I'm in search of my next Dakota I aware that this truck is discontinue but I don't want to give up just yet!!! Please help me find another Dakota.
Bought an 06 Duramax a few months back and it's been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. And that's taking into consideration plenty of cars I've driven straight off the lot. Working with Greg was phenomenal! He was patient and took into consideration my need for a truck and did not try to push me into a vehicle that did not work for me. If I ever feel the need to acquire something that doesn't drink so much fuel, I'll be back! Thanks Greg :)!

Or seen so did I win the 3 hounded dollar prize yet.
I bought my first new truck here. I was walked through the entire process and felt very good about the purchase. Everyone was extremely pleasant to work with! Extremely happy with them and how easy it is wot work with them. Dennis was very nice and reassuring. Q was informative and helped me make good decisions. Dave was a great point of contact. The team is great and I love my new F150

Bought another vehicle from Berkenkotter, Greg Wolaver did a great job of meeting our needs and exceeding our expectations! Our family has been buying cars from Berkenkotter for over 20 years and have had great experiences every rime.
Won't find a better mid-sized truck

Happily owned a 2005 Dodge Dakota SLT Crew Cab V8 Magnum for the last 7+ years. Hauls whatever you throw at it and with the V8 it's just as fast and just as strong as it's big brother but smaller and lighter giving it great gas mileage.
Wade is the best salesman in town. Thinks of his customers first and makes buying a car as painless as possible. Five thumbs up!
So far I l love the dodge Dakota.

This dodge runs very well. The only thing that bugs me is, the remote enter doesn't work and the key to open the doors doesn't disengage the alarm. So if the truck is locked the alarms goes off every time, Very annoying to me and my neighbors.
My wife and I both liked the Outlander PHEV so much we both wanted one. We sent them and offer with prices for our existing car and what we would pay the PHEV. They called back a few days later excepting the offer and had all the paper work ready to go when we showed up. The transaction was smooth and deal was exactly what we had requested (first time as dealers typically try to pull a fast one lowering the car price with the trade in).
If they did a little renovation, it would be a fantastic dealership. It's beyond dated though. That's is the only down side.
I bought this truck June of 2002

I am the second owner of this truck and have drove it almost every day. I had two before this one but this was the best. It drove like a car, rode like a car but hauled stuff like a truck. I hate getting rid of it but I am 68 and would like to get one more truck before I quit. I just do not believe they can make a better truck. It is the exact right size. It is easy to park, easy to drive and has plenty of power on the road. I tend to drive on the fast side but this truck still gets 18 mpg or better on the road. I can not think of one thing I would change about the Dakota.
The service department was sketchy at best here for a long time. I do have to state my last visit was much better. I arrived for my scheduled appointment and was horrified at the line of cars as historically they were very slow in getting to and returning my vehicle in a timely manner. This visit it was done early. They also did almost all of what I asked which is much better than usual. Historically they would tell me they rotated and adjusted tire pressure when in fact they did not check tire pressure. When I questioned why the gauges said it was off they said it was the gauge. I double checked when I got home and sure enough they hadn't done the work. This time they didn't replace a break light I had asked to have done but did get all the other items done and done well. Big step in the right direction! Thanks to whoever is now running service as the changes for the better are definitely noticeable!

this is the best truck ever i really love it and i hope my dad doesnt make me get rid of it. i havent gotten to take it to a drive in movie yet and im pretty sad about it.
Lawrence, and Randolph were amazing!! Great deal on my F150. 3rd car I have bought from them and every time has been a great experience!
I see these bad reviews but not my experience. Very helpfully and relaxing. And I got out of there very quick. Go see Lawerence and Randolph you won’t regret! Best experience from a dealer I have ever had!!
Smooth riding, looks great, performs very well!

I thoroughly enjoy driving this truck! It has plenty of power, drives easily and smoothly, looks good, and does what I need it to do!
So I've been in the market for a vehicle for a good while now, I had been searching on Facebook and found a 2014 Jeep and contacted the seller, who sent me to y'all since it was your sell. Unfortunately that Jeep had already been sold, I needed up speaking with Bradon, and he sent me the link to the car, that is now sitting in my drive way, and I feel in love. Went over today to test drive and check it out. And left with a car of dreams... I literally cried when I drove off property.
Your team really knows their stuff and how to make a moms dreams come true... will recommend every time

I would like to say Thank you for all the help, great experience! If your looking for a nice, clean, reliable vehicle this is the place to go!! 5 Stars keep up the great work!!!

Very reliable, Drive it on long trips...comfortable interior for a truck, everything is in reach.
Like everything about it except for the slow to warm up transmission, But that's a Dodge and if you like Dodge trucks you are used to it and accept it for what it is.
