2001 Dodge Durango Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


We've had this car for almost 3 years. It has been very reliable and functional. We cross-shopped it against full-size GM's, and have been reasonably happy with our choice, although we've regretted it at times as well. Not as smooth as a Tahoe, and not nearly as roomy (the Durango is very narrow for an SUV), but much cheaper and has all the capability of a full-size (can tow as much and haul as many people). While we haven't loved it, and at times have wished we spent extra on a full-size GM, our Durango has served its purpose very well.

Best Features

Heavy duty running gear for a mid-size. Fold flat rear seat. Best cupholders and center console. Plenty of power and sounds good. Affordably priced, nice interior, very capable 4x4 off-road.

Worst Features

Uses more gas than a Suburban, needs both 2-hi and full-time AWD settings (ie, GM), 4-wheel ABS should be standard (rear ABS is useless), wider interior, more supportive bucket seats, high depreciation.
