1998 Dodge Durango SUV SLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Love this SUV but I anticipated
problems and was smart enough to buy
extended warranty. Window lifts have
been replaced 2 X per window, AC
evaporator went out, battery died at 24
months, steering column replaced, seat
track replaced (rocking chair
syndrome), speed sensor, all four
speakers and some other items to many
to count. I still like the vehicle
though and my wife thinks it's junk.
What's you expect, she drives a Camry.


Best Features

Styling, interior room, tumble forward rear seats, lay flat third seat, towing capacity, cargo room, sound system, and off road capabilty, and passing power.


Worst Features

fix the reliability problems!

Review

I absolutely love my Durango. I am not
a big fan of dodge but, I love my
truck. It is perfect for a family, it
has plenty of room but its not too
bulky. It doesn't drive like an SUV. I
am very comfortable in it.


Best Features

Third Row Seat

Review

I use to buy a new vehicle about every
year. My '98 Durango is great. I've had
no mechanical problems, ride is
comfortable, this is the only vehicle
I've ever owned where I've been
completely happy with it, even after 5
years (my main reason for holding on to
it so long).


Best Features

My favorite feature is the front driver seat comfort. The 5.2 tows pretty well and gets fairly good mileage when towing.


Worst Features

Eliminate the console heat/air to the back seats, it doesn't do much and my 4 year old kicked off most everything during a tantrum. Some of the clips holding the tailgate panel came loose and rattled around - poor design. Better system for child car seats.

Review

Had my 1998 Durango about a year and
half. It has been the best vehicle I
have owned. It has some quirks
(keyless entry does not work
periodically), but it has been very
dependable.


Best Features

Powerful V8 and capable 4 wheel drive


Worst Features

More space, lower center of gravity

Review

This truck has never given me any
problem in the 5 years I've owned it
other that the battery dying in the
middle of a deer hunt. Gas mileage is
fairly typical of other SUV owners I've
talked to, and it is tolerable if you
keep your foot out of it.


Best Features

This is a truck. I like the manual shift to go into 4-wheel drive. After 5 years, I still think its the best looking SUV in its class.


Worst Features

Bigger glove box and/or center console storage would help.
