I purchased my 1999 SLT Durango used with 46K miles. I now have 61k and the car has been flawless. I love the 5.9L V8 engine for get up and go. I like the size of this SUV, not too big and not to small. I love the way the Durango handles on the road and around town. The gas mileage is reasonable, about the same as my last SUV 15 miles per gallon average for city and highway combined. The Durango is one of the best used car values because they can be purchased for a reasonable cost.
Get up and go 5.9L engine, fun to drive, good looks, 7 passenger, nice leather seats.
The Durango's are very affordable when
shopping for SUV's. I've had no major
problems with it at all, only
scheduled maintenance upkeep. The 5.9
liter motor is great scaling through
mountains with lots of power to spare
and fuel economy is reasonable
Comfort and power
dashboard tends to be a little bit too
shiny after cleaning when driving in
Bought the Durango for it's looks,
interior room, and power for towing my
boat. Did not count on spending lots
of money on repairs which still have
not been solved. I have owned this
vehicle for 10 months and have had to
fix or repair the a/c, rear passenger
window, clean fuel injectors and
throttle body, tune up, rebuild the
tranny, and the still unresolved surge
in power when at cruising speed. Very
frustrating. Two different
dealerships on three different visits
have not been able solve this problem.
Cannot wait to get rid of this yehicle!
Great looks, stong 5.9 engine, lots of
room, ergonomics are great.
Higher quality parts, have more highly
trained technicians to fix all of the
problems I have experienced.
I adored my Durango and stood my ground
when my father tried to tell me it was
poorly built. I have seen the light,
Dad is ALWAYS right! It is 5 years old
now(and I am still paying payments!),
and goes in the shop an average of once
a month. If I get it out for less than
$500, I am delighted. I replaced the
transfer case($3000), speed sensors(3X
$300), power window motors, water pump,
radiator thermostat, etc, not to
mention the typical 'expected' things.
Have I mentioned I am on my 4th
serpentine belt? I was told they
should last 3 years! I think the
mechanic has the truck more than I do
Anyway, they look good, but I'll never
buy another one!
The 'looks'. Love the interior and
the 'intimidating' front end. Great
Everything under the hood!...and under
the dash...and in the door panels...and
under the floor boards...you get the
Had my Durango for over 5 years. I
have it serviced every 3 to 4
thousand miles and it hasn't had any
mechnical problems.I have had several
rear bumper fender benders with no
damage being done to my Durango.We
drive the family to the
mountains at least twice a month it
is one of the most comfortable rides
I've experienced.I like sitting up
high and feel very safe.
I'll keep it until it until it gives me
it's last mile.
Dependability! Power! Leather/electric
seats. Radio controls on steering
wheel. Cargo space(no 3rd seat). Center
console computer. 3 power outlets
(kids can use laptop when traveling or
TV/VCR). Hidden storage. Very
