Hi Nick, my name is Gary. I am very
happy with my 2 WD, 4.7L automatic, Positraction, Quad
except for one thing. Poor gas mileage 11 to be exact. I
am interested in how poor the rest of your readers
mileage is. I took it back to the dealer and they told be
to bring it
I recently purchased a 2001 Quad Cab 4x4 with the 4.7 engine. I too felt that the sticker reflected the best mileage available for the truck in a 4x4 model. In three weeks, I have put on almost 2000 miles. (A long trip to Kansas and back really added to that figure.)
The first thing I noticed was the computer average MPG was not accurate until I figured out how they are getting that average. Watch how much that increases when you go down a hill with your foot off the accelorator. They are averaging all averages to get that figure, kind of misleading. Also, maybe that is how they figure those high MPG they advertise. But wait. On the trip back from Kansas, I filled up in Wichita. After driving over 400 miles and getting home, Just as I pulled into town did the fuel light come on, indicating I had between 3 and 4 gallons left. Figuring the miles driven and the amount of gas I purchased, my Quad Cab got 19.998 mpg. I figure this will improve when broken in at the 5000 mark, but still pretty good compared to what others are getting. I have not dropped below 15.8 yet.
Also, I bought the Penda bed liner, the same company that makes the one for Dodge with the only difference being no Ram Head in the front, instead Penda's logo. Also, was only $179 installed. Well worth it.
Great vehicle and glad I got the 2001 instead of the 2000. Love those 16 inch wheels too, really smooths the ride out. Great deal from the dealer I could not pass up instead of the $750 rebate that Dodge was offering. Must have wanted some 2001's running around because I got it cheaper than a 2000 with rebate.
My girlfriend is thinking of trading in her 1999 Dakota Club Cab for one now she likes mine so well.
You have a very nice website. I
purchased my 5.9 L Quad Cab on the 12th of Sept, and
Nick: My name is Don. I am looking to buy a 2000/2001 Dak Quad. Which engine do you have? Is yours 2x4 or 4x4. Biggest question...what is your fuel mileage like? I hear Daks are very thirsty.
Thanks for the info. Don
Hey Nick,thanks for the site.Just got my truck on Halloween,found the truck i was looking for,SLT in Intense Blue Pearl coat.The 4.7 Magnum v8 is awsome! Took some doing but I found it sitting at a dealer about two hours away. Waiting for the cap, paint has to cure.Doing a Herculiner this week,or next if I cant fit it in.Will send you a picture of the hottest looking truck on eastern Long Island,as soon as I get it clean again! Thanks again.
Hey Nick, Charles here again, A couple of things I forgot to mention last time.First of all i wanted to see if you have seen the slide out trays for pick ups.These are great.I am also in the building buisness,i work with alot of guys that have this system. Its pretty simple, angle iron frame mounted to the bed with steel rollers,another angle iron frame with 3/4 ply . holds up to 2000 pounds,I dont think all my tools combined add up to that!
Second,the first full day with my truck,I was studying all the lines and curves on my lunch break,and i noticed that the passenger sid headlight and signals are not exactly where they should be,the reveal between the bumper and the housing is off. I can run my finger between them on the drivers side but not the passengter side.
The next day i had to go and give the rest of my down payment to the dealer where i bought the truck.While i was there i checked all the Dakotas on the lot,same thing,same side. Then i ckecked all the Durangos since the front end is the same and guess what,those were all uneven too.Asked the salesman if anyone else had noticed this,he seemed surprised that i caught it.I guess 20 years of carpentry does help in other areas.Setting windows and doors does sharpen you observation skills.
Have you or anyone else reading this noticed this on their Dakota?Please let me know what you find on yours.
hey nick, like the site! i'm on a hunt for a bra 4 my dak/quad. seen any? i really want to protect the paint job, since winter in the city can be damaging.
Just wanted to say that your page is great, please keep doing the updates!! Lastly, I am shopping for the 2001 Quad Cab, and I know what the interior looks like. What does the 2000 interior look like, wondering about the 4x4 lever and the center console? I know the 2001 has 2 cup holders on the floor, the 2000 didnt? Thanks!!
