Much better than Chevy/Ford

2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD
Good experience thus far with this vehicle (80,000+ miles). Minor electrical system issues/door actuators/control-arm bushings replaced. Ongoing issue with catalytic converter, more of a poor dealership service issue than with the vehicle. I have the 4wd version, VERY poor gas milage, especially with aftermarket agressive tires. I highly recommend buying extended warranty, as with any American car, interior accessories are beginning to fail.
Offroad Characteristics (with aftermarket all-terrain tires), Inclimate weather handling.
Transmission made beefier, heavier spring/sway or anti-roll bars. Eliminate 4.7 liter engine platform, underpowered. Door actuators and wiper motors need to be stronger.
