1998 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD
I loved it at first, but then I hit
70k miles. YIKES!! Needed a whole
new transmission for the tune of
$3,600. Now the A/C evaporator has a
leak - $1,100. Have had to replace
radiator, water pump, thermostat, ball
joints, etc. Has a minor oil leak -
who knows where that will lead. On
the positive, has great room for the 2
car seats and all of their gear, but
am now looking into a mini-van, which
is what we were trying to avoid in
buying the Durango!! Poor gas mileage.
3rd Row Seat, great in the MN snow,
great interior room, love the exterior
design, isn't a mini-van, which is why
we bought in the first place.
Improve the gas mileage and
quality... The quality is just plain
poor. Shouldn't have so many problems
with a car that only has 74k miles!
