Bad truck, but Dodge itself is worse
By J to the C on
1999 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD
I bought this new in 1998 and it's
been a rough ride since day one. This
truck has stranded me, the wife and
the kids at least 5 times in 4 years,
We've gone through 5 batteries, 2
water pumps, 2 window motors, a washer
pump, a blown freeze plug and a front
seat, plus now with 50k miles the
dealer says the ball joints are shot,
the transfer case is leaking and the
cooling system is corroded (even
though they serviced it). After the 3
year warranty expired we tried to get
Dodge to help us out at least a little
bit but they told us to go to hell.
Overall a bad car and a worse car
company. Avoid at all costs.
Access to the third row seat is very
nice and the second row seats fold
down very easily.
Dodge needs to step up to the plate
and take responsibility for the
various manufacturig defects in these
trucks. Stop trying to weasle out of
taking care of your customers or soon
you won't have any. This will be my
last Dodge/Chrysler product.
