1999 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought the Durango a $1000 under
what everyone else was asking and
got a great deal. One year later the
truck depreciates $3500 bucks, and
have had nothing but problems
since. Had to put in tranny seals in 2
times now, ball joint are goin out, tie
rod ends are going out, exhaust is
going out. shocks, minor electrical,
squeaky pullys, fog light switch,
windshield spayers, differental is
acting wierd, Braking is pretty funky
as well somtimes the antilocks
works somtimes they don't. I am at
the point I am scared to keep it any
longer. Oh yes and everybodys
favorite complaint the HORRABLE
gas mialage! 10 mpg.


Best Features

Review

I WAS HAPPY TO TRADE THIS VEHICLE IN
AFTER LESS THAN A YEAR OF OWNERSHIP. WE
EXPERIENCED PROBLEMS WITH SOME
ELECTRICAL SENSORS FAILING. HOWEVER,
THE MOST COSTLY & DISTURBING PROBLEMS
CAME AFTER THE ENGINE STARTED LOOSING
OIL PRESSURE AT LESS THAN 70,000 MILES.
THE DEALERSHIP WE TOOK IT TO WAS NO
HELP AT ALL. APPARENTLY THIS HAS BEEN A
PROBLEM FOR A NUMBER OF DURANGO OWNERS.
LOOK AT CONSUMER AFFAIRS REPORTS
CLOSELY BEFORE PURCHASING THIS SUV!
THOUGH IT HAD ALL THE FEATURES WE
WANTED, IT HAS COST ME A TON OF MONEY.
I HAVE REPLACED IT WITH A TAHOE AND GET
BETTER MILAGE, SMOOTHER RIDE, MORE
POWER, & MORE ROOM.


Best Features

EXTERIOR STYLING.


Worst Features

TOO MUCH TO LIST...

Review

I love my 99 Durango. 5 years & 75000
miles and the only problem has been a
recurring blow on the cooling feed
gasket -- not catestrophic but
annoying. Other than that, solid. No
creaks, no rattles, great reliability.
Of course, I have it in for its 15000
mile pressure oil flush, pressure trans
flush, and pressure coolant flush.
Nominal maintenance as far as I am
concerned... don't want to shell out
another 40 grand for a new one! -- All
in all, wife and I and foursome have
been thrilled.


Best Features

Perfect size. Great leather. Great layout. Easy to look at. Plenty of power. No problems. Plenty of room for foursome's golf bags. And, on all that, reliable home in case of earthquake!


Worst Features

New Durango is so ugly and funky, my auto salesman cannot sell me a new one. We'll just keep this one running thank you very much.

Review

Bought it new with a 5.2L V8 and have
never regretted it. Not even when the
gas prices topped $2 per gallon here.
It was a huge adjustment since my
previous vehicle was a Saturn. But
that only took a few days and she's
been purring ever since. Sure it
rides like a truck, but if I'd wanted
a car, I would've bought one. Some
minor glitches, otherwise no trouble.


Best Features

Steering wheel audio controls, overhead console and the POWER. The color is still outstanding...Chili Pepper Red.


Worst Features

Too late for that, I saw the new 2004 and they ruined the looks of it. It looks like a minivan...God forbid I ever fall into that category...!

Review

I've had nothing but fun with my
Durango. Compared to other SUVs, it
ROCKS! Too many of them lack power,
styling, room, etc... Not the
Durango. It has all the above. The
only thing I would like improved, would
be the gas milage, though it's not all
that bad when compared to other SUVs.


Best Features

Power, Styling, "Feel"


Worst Features

Find a way to get better mileage out of the V8 engine.
