Looking at a 1998 Dakota Sport Club Cab 4x4 with V6. Has 70,000 miles on it. Appears to be a nice vehicle. I don't need alot of power, just looking for reliable transportation. What do you think?

I have a 98 Dakota xcab 4x4 with a 5.2 V8 ........ Same amount of miles ........ bought it new, its been a great truck - never went back to the dealer for anything! I would think a V6 might be underpowered, but if you don't need power - go for it! For curiousity sake....What are they asking?

the 3.9 v6 is suppose to be as relibable as the 5.2 318ci. these motors normally make to 200k miles without any problem. just change the oil and be some what easy on the trans and you should be fine. i have a 154k on my 5.2 and drag race the thing. havent had any problems. good luck should be fine.

Gary~ Got that exact truck except i got mine with 24k on it. has been very reliable not really a speed demon. You said you weren't looking for a power hog so if it is a good price buy it. They do last a long time, mine has 93k and my friend seth has 235k on his no problems yet.
