Should Consider another Manufacturer
By Never Again on
2005 Dodge Durango SXT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I bought this vehicle at the end of 2005 when they were running the model year clearance. I had some negitive equity from another vehicle so the $6000 in rebates was great, however the depreciation on this vehicle is horribly. It nearly halved in value is first year. I am now two years into a 3 year lease and i am being offered my lease payout as my trade in value. I also have about 33,000 miles on the vehicle and both fron seat base cowlings are cracked near seatbelt attachments, the vehicle has stalled several times for no reason, the motor has a clicking lifter, and my fuel mileage keeps getting worse. Beware of the oh so good looking deal. Think twice before you buy.
Nice ride, lots of room, great in the snow
Reliability, this vehicle was the #1 recalled vehicle in the country right along with the dodge ram at number 3. Get rid of the high incentives or lower the MSRP of the vehicle to save huge depreciation in first several years.
