I am now the proud owner of a 1998 Dodge Dakota Sport. It only has 80k miles on it, its in great condition. It breaks nicely, and I sit higher on the road now, so I don't feel like I'm going to be squashed each time I pass an SUV. It accelerates well, and I got it for $4,900.00.
However, the most important feature is the bench seat. The reasons for which are not given. Anyone who thinks its for any but the most rightuous of reasons is probably right. ;)
