Great car, but bad cooling system

2000 Dodge Durango Sport 4dr SUV 4WD
My Durango has been a love-hate situation. I love the looks, love the power and the safety feel is great. The gas mileage is not good, but that's the price for a bigger car. I have had terrible luck with the cooling. This car has often gone past 210 degrees. Smells hot! The radiator had to be replaced due to leaks twice. The front cooling housing had to be replaced because a leak formed in the middle of the metal housing due to heat! Cylinder 7 began miss-firing and cause the left cylinder head to be replaced. Heat also cause an anoying squeak due to leaks in engine block seal. I've been so careful with this car and has gotten me nowhere. I do like the 04 Durango!
Great medium size. It towes well enough but I also never used the overdrive with pulling. Thats supposed to be better on the Tran. I loved being able to take 8 people in my truck! Great family car when it runs!!
Fix the cooling system. Gas mileage stinks! Possibly give third seat more seating space.
