2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought my Durango new and have put 118,000 miles on it. I tow a bass boat, drive across dove fields, take trips and drove it to work. One constant problem is the front rotors are good for 16 months and 21,000 miles. Then they have to be replaced. Looking for a rotor solution. The truck otherwise has performed well. My wife and I enjoy driving it on a trip as the ride is comfortable, solid, quiet and I can pass anybody any time. I don't get those who complain about the gas mileage ? All Fords, Chevy's etc get 14 mpg or less. I get 14 mpg in town and 21 mpg on the road. I plan to drive it till the wheels fall off


Best Features

Plenty of room for hunting dog, guns, life jackets, decoys, etc. The Fold up door keeps the rain off of you while loading. Does a good job towing the boat and the ride is steady. Been caught in a few storms and I felt safe. After 8 years still has a good paint job can't say that about GM products.


Worst Features

Dodge trucks need larger rotors, and a better overall brake system. To light for the weight of this truck. For a truck used for hunting and fishing the interior is good. Dodge customer service could be better, alot better.

Review

I bought this used in 2004. It had 66,000 miles when I got it. At 126,677 miles I replaced the radiator, water pump and the starter only. Outside of new tires, brakes and an alignment I have had no Major issues with this vehicle. Gas mileage isnt the greatest, but it is still running the same. I am in the navy and move around a lot and this vehicle has been overseas and on several long distance trips. Most dodges seem to go down around 80,000 miles, this one has gotten better and better with age. Everyone complains about dodges having a million issues. No car is perfect, sometimes they come the plant with problems and at times quality control is the issues. Preventative maintainance is the key


Best Features

room and towing capacaity


Worst Features

stronger engine and fuel economy. better interior for less cabin noise.

Review

I bought this truck new in 2000. I had to put a new engine in at 80,000 miles and just put in a new transmission at 102,000. Now it's leaking fluid...probably the radiator needs repair. Water pump also just went out... expensive, but solid truck feel. I'm selling it to buy a toyota or lexus... or honda... or... anything but a DODGE!


Best Features

Feels safe, truck like. Solid ride.


Worst Features

Cheap interior. Steering wheel 'leather' actually wore off! I was told that was normal, only problem it happened at 22,000 miles!

2000 Dodge Durango Sport 4dr SUV


Review

With regular maintenance and upkeep the 2000 Dodge Durango Sport will run till you wreck it! We had just around out 130k on it and had covered from the west coast, the south, and the heart of the midwest. The only problem we had was with the passenger side actuator ($10), drivers side windows (both required no new parts)and heater took a while to heat up and that was only after having Firestone work on it.... I don't blame Dodge. If your looking for a sturdy vehicle DO this Dodge! It will run until somebody smashes into you and totals it....p.s. the wife drove it away after it was hit...STURDY STURDY STURDY


Best Features

Ample space for gear - Fold down seats - 3 row seating - won't stop running - can't break in through handles on doors - all around great car


Worst Features

Exhaust fumes from muffler are strong -

Review

I bought this vehicle a while ago and haven't been happier with any other vehicle. I love it! I now have 156,000 miles and haven't done any major maintence on it. I change and rotate tires every 2500 miles. It has a custom 6" lift with 33" toyo m/t tires. It has the 5.9L in it, with the 4.10 gears. The only downside is, I now only average 10mpg in town and about 11.5 on the highway at 70mph. But this vehicle is a blast to drive! And now that gas is more affordable, I wouldn't trade it for anything!


Best Features

The power!


Worst Features

It needs locking rear differential, better mpg's, and wish it had a solid front axle. But I love it regardless!
