1999 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD
Bought new and used as a daily driver/home construction work truck/ski vehicle for the past 10 years. Avg fuel economy of 14.5mpg. 5.9L engine with tow package. 4X4 with compound low transfer case has never failed me, left me stranded and there has never been snow conditions that have stopped me. Never needed chains. A/C condensor failed a couple of days after warranty expired. Rear washer hasn't worked for years. Had to completely rebuild the front end. Replaced water pump. Replaced manifold gaskets. That's about it. No problems with transmission or electricals.
Seats 7. Tons of torque. Great vision. Can haul almost anything on the roof including small boats, skis, luggage, ping pong table. Leater interior still in excellent shape after 10 years.
Bouncy ride, even with stiff Bilstien shocks. Would like better gas mileage, but don't want to give up the other features to get it. Buy a Prius to commute in.
