1999 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD


I absolutely love this vehicle for its
style and usability, and absolutely
hate it for gas mileage and reliabilty.
Folom Lake Dodge has got to be the
worst dealership I have ever delt with.
The 5.2L V-8 engine has a terrible
pinging or spark knocking sound when
accelerating. The dealership told us
that this is a common problem with the
Durango, and that the engine system had
to be "FLASHED", and that the extended
warranty we paid $2,000 for would not
cover the work. We had the service and
a complete tune-up done and it still
pings. At 22,000 miles three of the
four electric window switches went out
on it. It is slowly becoming a
frustrating vehicle.

Best Features

Exterior styling and V-8 power. Great turning radius. Seats 7 passengers and plenty of cargo room.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, Gas mileage, Gas mileage. 11mpg just doesn't cut it. Especially when the sticker and dealer told us that it would get 17mpg. Get rid of the automatic adjusting timing. I prefer to be able to adjust the timing.
