Bought used 7 months ago and haven't regretted it at all. Had 142K miles on it at the time. Since then I had to replace the water pump due to bearings going out, but that's the only problem. The vehicle was obviously well maintained by the original owner. The 5.2l engine provides good power. Changed to a K&N air cleaner and it boosted the hp. Gets poor gas mileage, but you can increase it some by being careful starting - keep it under 2500 rpm while accelerating. Very roomy and comfortable.

Purchased this used a few months ago. Got a great deal so didn't really expect much. Ran a CARFAX Report and it checked out clean. Although a gas hog, it sure is fun. It has the 5.2l (318 cu in) engine which moves it along good enough. Options included rear AC which helps cool it off quickly on hot Texas days. All in all a good vehicle. I love it.

I bought a Durango in good old Michigan about a year ago. I LOVE it! My only beef is that it is a gas destroyer! We get snow in MI so the gas is kind of worth the drive ability it has. It handles the roads NICE. It doesn't like to shift into overdrive either unless I let it warm up a bit. When the temp. is below zero I can't be too upset though.

Worst car I've owned

by from Portland, OR on December 14, 2008

We replaced the computer, The head gasket, tail light, fuses, foglights, timing belts, water pump, and lots of antifreeze. It has been one thing after another and we haven't even had it a whole year yet. After doing further research we found out this was without exception the worst model year for most Dodge vehicles. The repair cost have almost totaled this SUV... We live on an incline and we were experiencing runability issues, but after we started parking it nose up they disappeared. I looked online and many people have tried to get Dodge to recall our brand of SUVs but Dodge insists there is nothing wrong with them.

Original Durangos are still Great

by from OC, CA on April 15, 2011

I have two Durangos and they are both still real work horses. Both have nearly 200K miles and just keep running. The R/T gets poor gas mileage but it tows well.

I went from a 2000 Honda Accord LX, which I loved to death, to a 1999 Dodge Durango SLT. I unfortunately totaled my Accord and I was devastated. I wasn't looking into an SUV after the accident, I was originally looking for a Volvo XC70. When I had finally found one that I loved I went to the dealer to buy it. I'm VERY glad that they had sold it the day before and that they had directed me toward the Durango. I bought my Durango in July of '05 and have loved it ever since. My husband loved it so much he went out and bought his own this year (also a '99 SLT)!!!! Sadly the expenses of all of the work that it needs is too much for me. My Durango Has given me a great 6 years and I don't think I'll ever go back to a sedan.
