1999 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Bought it used off a Ford lot. Noticed it using oil within 2 weeks but no oil leaks. Had to go to the dealer once a week or so to have oil added so that they could "chart" the oil use. Finally had to insist that they fix it or take it back. Ended up being a bad intake gasket. I see from the other reviews (and heard from a Dodge dealer mechanic) that this is common in the 5.9 liter engines. I have an occasional rattle in the rear end on hard acceleration (like the differential is "slipping") Anyone out there had rear-end problems with the 4WD Durango? Wind noise with the window cracked is very bad at highway speeds.

Best Features

Great acceleration, plenty of towing power. Seats my family (2 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 gradeschoolers) pretty comfortably. Sound system is great. Rear air and rear heat are nice.

Worst Features

Work out the bugs. Sounds like Dodge should recall the intake gasket. Do some wind tunnel testing and figure out why it makes so damn much noise at highway speed.
