1998 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I use to buy a new vehicle about every year. My '98 Durango is great. I've had no mechanical problems, ride is comfortable, this is the only vehicle I've ever owned where I've been completely happy with it, even after 5 years (my main reason for holding on to it so long).


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is the front driver seat comfort. The 5.2 tows pretty well and gets fairly good mileage when towing.


Suggested Improvements

Eliminate the console heat/air to the back seats, it doesn't do much and my 4 year old kicked off most everything during a tantrum. Some of the clips holding the tailgate panel came loose and rattled around - poor design. Better system for child car seats.

Review

Had my 1998 Durango about a year and half. It has been the best vehicle I have owned. It has some quirks (keyless entry does not work periodically), but it has been very dependable.


Favorite Features

Powerful V8 and capable 4 wheel drive


Suggested Improvements

More space, lower center of gravity

Review

This truck has never given me any problem in the 5 years I've owned it other that the battery dying in the middle of a deer hunt. Gas mileage is fairly typical of other SUV owners I've talked to, and it is tolerable if you keep your foot out of it.


Favorite Features

This is a truck. I like the manual shift to go into 4-wheel drive. After 5 years, I still think its the best looking SUV in its class.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger glove box and/or center console storage would help.
