Vehicle1999 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewBought 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 FeaturesGreat 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 FeaturesWork 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.
