1998 Dodge Durango 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought my Durango used, had it checked out by my mechanic and then took it on a long trip. (OK, I know, that was dumb). When I went to get the alignment done, they said they couldn't do it because of bad ball joints. It was covered under warranty AND so was the next set 10K miles later. Last summer I had to replace the ball joints again. It has a nice inside but my power windows gave out around 130k miles. I drove it to 202K miles and the 4WD has gone out. I kept very good maintenance on it but stuff has just starting going. The front bumper is rusting.

Best Features

How the seats fold down. This was huge in 1998. The leather seats are comfortable but it is LOUD inside.

Worst Features

Ball joints. Gas mileage.
