1998 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD
My wife loved the car at first. Delightful to drive off-road however, we rarely used the 4 wheel drive system. When it was needed, it failed immediately. On the way back from Reno, Dec. 2001, the 4X went out and it had to be towed into Roseville, Ca. In Jan. 2002, we experienced the same repeated problem. In Sept. 2001, I had the 4X system gone over by the dealer to avoid such a problem. Then I discovered they don't put gaskets in this car. They use RTV only. Maintenance problems are rediculous for a 4-year old vehicle.
power, cabin space, 3rd seat.
Quit trying to save a few cents by not using proven gaskets. I get the impression that the dealers don't know how to install RTV in their maintenance shops.
