1999 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I absolutely love this vehicle for its style and usability, and absolutely hate it for gas mileage and reliabilty. Folom Lake Dodge has got to be the worst dealership I have ever delt with. The 5.2L V-8 engine has a terrible pinging or spark knocking sound when accelerating. The dealership told us that this is a common problem with the Durango, and that the engine system had to be "FLASHED", and that the extended warranty we paid $2,000 for would not cover the work. We had the service and a complete tune-up done and it still pings. At 22,000 miles three of the four electric window switches went out on it. It is slowly becoming a frustrating vehicle.

Best Features

Exterior styling and V-8 power. Great turning radius. Seats 7 passengers and plenty of cargo room.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, Gas mileage, Gas mileage. 11mpg just doesn't cut it. Especially when the sticker and dealer told us that it would get 17mpg. Get rid of the automatic adjusting timing. I prefer to be able to adjust the timing.
