Review of the 2000 Dodge Durango

  • A serious SUV, down to its stout towing ability, generous cargo room, unyielding ride and abysmal fuel economy.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Aggressive styling, large interior, powerful 5.9-liter V8.

  • Cons

    5.2-liter V8's power disappointing, interior squeaks, wind noise.

  • What's New for 2000

    The next-generation 4.7-liter V8 is now available on four-wheel-drive models and is linked to an all-new automatic transmission. Rack-and-pinion steering becomes standard for both two- and four-wheel-drives. A performance-oriented R/T model has been added to the lineup that already includes the SLT and the decked-out SLT Plus.

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD

This is an amazing truck! so many people bash it for problems some have had. all of my friends that owned one loved them. we got ours new back in 2000 and has been running great with 125,000 miles on it. no real problems ever occurred.

Remarkable durability

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD

Me and my family have had this truck for almost 10 years and it has definitely been worth it. I have always been a traditional SUV guy and still am because of this truck. The 4.7 L is great, the 4WD system worked terrific in the snow, and at 240,000 miles it is still running. Besides a cracked head gasket replacement which was a bit of a pain, nothing else has gone wrong. It was a great road trip car and we love it. I am worried that it may go soon so its replacement GMC Yukon has already been purchased, but I hope it lasts for a long time. Even with its terrible fuel economy, I'm convinced its one of the best cars I have owned.

Durable & aggressive

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD

I have owned this Durango since its inception back in November 1999 and it has been impressive. A lot of people bash these durangos based on reliability, though I have witnessed its durability through the 10 years I have owned it. I am at about 400,000 KM/ 240,000 Miles and it has only broken down once where a minor $200 fuel pump repair took place. It has been a great family car and has done its job perfectly. An obvious flaw is the terrible fuel efficiency at 14 mpg city, which you can actually witness your fuel dwindling as you drive. Overall, it's a great ride, it's good in the winter, and it's got a very generous towing capacity. I'm just glad I have a 2010 Corolla on the side.




Been a good truck

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD

Bought my Durango new and have put 118,000 miles on it. I tow a bass boat, drive across dove fields, take trips and drove it to work. One constant problem is the front rotors are good for 16 months and 21,000 miles. Then they have to be replaced. Looking for a rotor solution. The truck otherwise has performed well. My wife and I enjoy driving it on a trip as the ride is comfortable, solid, quiet and I can pass anybody any time. I don't get those who complain about the gas mileage ? All Fords, Chevy's etc get 14 mpg or less. I get 14 mpg in town and 21 mpg on the road. I plan to drive it till the wheels fall off




Closing in on 200,000 miles

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD

I am closing in on 200,000 miles and wanted to convey my satisfaction with this vehicle. Other than routine maintenance, the only significant repair expenditure was to replace 3 of the 4 power window motors. I average around 18 mpg and only notice diminished power when towing. It has been and is a great car.




Sound vehicle

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD

I had purchased this vehicle in 2002 and have never had a mechanical issue. I do my own maintenance and this vehicle is tough. The only thing we have done is tires brakes battery and shocks. These are expected things for a 120,000 mile vehicle. I am planning on this vehicle lasting our family of six (the third seat is great) at least until it has 200,000 plus on it. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants a tough reliable vehicle capable of handling any of your needs.
