2001 Dodge Durango Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've had nothing but good luck with my Durango. I get darn good mileage considing the size of the vehicle. Around 20 mpg average with the 4.7L V8. It's been extremely reliable as I have not had a problem in the 4 years and over 85,000 miles I have owned it. The only draw back is it likes to eat tires. I'm going through a set about every 25,.000 miles.


Best Features

3rd row seat, performance, mileage.


Worst Features

Better tire durability.

2001 Dodge Durango Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Rides well on the highway. Brakes are not quite robust enough for the weight of the vehicle, in constant stop and go traffic.


Best Features

Roominess. I always liked the exhaust sound. I know....trivia, but I still like it.


Worst Features

Needs better gas mileage, to go with the rise in gas prices.

2001 Dodge Durango Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We wanted a V-8 SUV. Grand Cherokee was top on our list, but it wasn't any bigger inside than the Acura we were replacing. Suburban/Tahoe was too big for my wife, and too expensive for me! Then we found the Durango--fully loaded SLT 4.7L!!! It is the perfect blend of size--big enough for our small family, small enough that my wife is comfortable in it; plenty of power to tow the toys, and didn't break the bank (thanks in part to low resale value and bad press!). Drives pretty well (not as smooth or sturdy-feeling as a Sub/Tahoe, but not bad), great power (feels as fast as our '01 Acura TL), interior is as nice as Chevy's LT packages, and we even get near 20 freeway mpg (speed limit)


Best Features

4.7L engine (almost as much power as the 5.9, w/ 50% better gas mileage--plus, it runs on regular instead of premium!); 3rd row seats; looks good; exhaust sounds great;


Worst Features

Interior panels don't match real well in color (compared to our Acura); needs a 2-hi, 4x4 auto, 4-hi, 4-lo transfer case setup for winter driving with changing road conditions, and better gas mileage when roads are not slippery. And no, no complaint about gas mileage--it is acceptable w/ the 4.7L.

Review

I have been driving full-size and
midsize SUV's for more than 20 years
and have owned Fords, Chevys and GMCs
before buying a 2001 Durango. The
Durango is the best engineered truck
in its class. It offers excellent
power, impressive acceleration and uch
tighter handling and turning than the
other SUV's I have owned. There is
also a much finer level of detail to
things like power outlets, electrical
controls and heating/cooling than on
the other trucks. I have spent a lot
of time in this truck in all sorts of
bad weather and it has never been
anything less than stable and sure-
footed, and does not feel like its
ready to rollover in sharp curves. My
only complaint is poor fuel economy.


Best Features

Multiple power outlets throughout.


Worst Features

Fuel economy and capacity need improvement.

Review

We bought this a few months back and
are extremely pleased. Great family
SUV. Has plenty of room our 3
children and all the extra stuff they
like to take when going on long
trips. Also pulls a camper very well.


Best Features

Muscular body style and the power to match.


Worst Features

Gas mileage.
