Owning, driving and depending on this vehicle has been a wonderful experience. The exterior design is sporty and fun. The interior is roomy, comfortable and well laid out. Furthermore, the vehicle has aged beautifully‚Ķit is 10 ¬Ĺ years old and looks virtually new, inside & out. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone considering an SUV or needing a roomy, sporty, dependable mode of transportation.

After buying my D with 74k I could not be more happy with my purchase.. I did have to replace the crank sensor at 113k(71bux).. aside from this minor issue this baby keeps on keeping on... smooth ride, quick response,quiet,snazzy looking too. The 4.7 eng is Mercedes and is as smooth as can be... They'll have to pry my cold dead fingers off of this baby when I go.

Best SUV

The Durango that I own couldn't be better. Has the power needed to haul almost anything and enough room for the whole family(dog too). The looks of the truck are very intimidating and makes other suv's seem wimpy. I bought it used for under $10k and I feel like i stole it.

I got a used 2000 durango SLT with 110K miles on it, and it still drives like a new car. The v8 5.9 Magnum is a strong powerplant. I bought the model with the axle-ratio that allows towing of 7300 lbs. Its hard to beat a 4x4 V8 5.9L with that kind of towing power for 5K (which is about what 2000 models with 100K+ go for these days) The drawbacks for me are: Headroom - I am 6'3, and if I slide the seat all the way back, my head often touches the point where the ceiling dips a few inches. My solution is to just not slide the seat all the way back, but I am sacrificing a few inches of leg room. I found the perfect seat adjustment spot, and I leave it at that. Gas Mileage - I actually managed 16.5 MPG driving from San Jose to Portland and back, but around town I typically only get 14MPG. and the 5.9L v8 requires Pemium, so it isnt economic in that regard. Other than that, I enjoy driving it. Lots of power, very solid feeling, engine sounds nice, very responsive, nice acceleration, handles off-road extremely well (as well as my Grand Cherokee), shifts reliably and efficiently.

This was my first car. Everybody told me for your first car you should by a little 4door car, but i dont like little cars. I saw my 2000 durango and said i got to have that truck. Its been great to me. I have takin off road twice, and i made it out fine with the 4wheel drive. The only thing is that dont hit a pot hole doin 80mph. my wheel alinement is horrible. When its in 4wheel drive i dont even have to touch the steering wheel it will turn a corner by itself thats how bad it is. otherwise no problems. its almost at 102000. Still starts right up even when it was buried in 15inches of snow and in 10degree weather. I Love my durango hope it keeps goin for another 9 years lol.

I can only speak positive about the power that my 2000 SLT 5.9ltr. Seat seems to have alot of slack in tracks and almost rocks back and forth as you stop and go. Fuel mileage is the worst at 14mpg on hwy. I have tuned the engine and tried several methods to improve on mileage and found only way is to leave it parked. I own a Magnum with Hemi and get twice the milage in city and 27 mpg hwy. Had several repairs to air conditioning and would not buy again. It has alot of room but the 3rd row better of for a contortionist.

The 2000 durango was the first car I've owned, it does everything I ask and more. I love it, it has more than enough power with the 5.9l v8 and is a good solid truck. The worst part is the fuel economy which is sad because it's very fun to drive. The 4x4 is unstoppable. Overall a fantastic vehicle, I would recommend to anyone.

I have owned mine for 4 1/2 years and are having all kinds of trouble with the cooling system. After taking it to three different shops I took it to the dealer they charged me $1500 and it is still not fixed. They then told me it needed $3000 more work. The check engine light went on 6 months after we bought it and none of the places we have taken it can figure out what it's main problem is. The transmission is now also having trouble and the car only has 65k mile on it. I have owned cars that I have put twice the miles and had half the problems. I am very disappointed I realy like the car but I an scared to cont. to put more $ into it. What will be next?
