2001 Dodge Durango Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this Durango with just under 100K on the clock. Had the tranny serviced when I did, and she's run fairly well since for a $10K car. I've had problems with the weak AC (tried everything, nothing seems to work), and poor cooling (had overheated twice, both times on hot summer days, on the highway). 4X4 is amazing, with low setting in the transfer case, able to extract itself from frame-rail deep mud. Mileage OK, 15 while commuting to work, 18 on the highway. Interior perfect for growing family and dogs. Seats 7, but can be parallel parked by anyone. Ride is somewhat trucklike, but expected from a body-on-frame design like this. A best fit for comfort, convenience + capability.
Audio controls on the steering wheel, 4X4 capability, fits everything, including the garage!
