1999 Dodge Durango SUV SLT 4dr SUV


Review

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.


Best Features

Get up and go 5.9L engine, fun to drive, good looks, 7 passenger, nice leather seats.


Worst Features

This SUV has been flawless.

Review

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


Best Features

Comfort and power


Worst Features

dashboard tends to be a little bit too shiny after cleaning when driving in the sun

Review

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!


Best Features

Great looks, stong 5.9 engine, lots of room, ergonomics are great.


Worst Features

Higher quality parts, have more highly trained technicians to fix all of the problems I have experienced.

Review

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!


Best Features

The 'looks'. Love the interior and the 'intimidating' front end. Great size. Comfortable.


Worst Features

Everything under the hood!...and under the dash...and in the door panels...and under the floor boards...you get the picture!

Review

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.


Best Features

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 comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Downsize the mirrors. Better gas mileage.
