Frontier Ford review
Good value happy to patronize local dealership
January 28, 2018
By Justin C from Oak Harbor, WA
First time car shopper at Frontier Ford. After failing to make a deal on a used vehicle at another dealership Frontier had one of the models we were looking at so we figured why not give them a shot before heading South to other dealerships off I-5. Our salesman Sean was helpful and pleasant to work with. He wanted to sell us a vehicle but wasn?t pushy. The road we test drove on was a quiet little road next to the refinery. The road is perfect for testing out the vehicle in pretty much any way you need to.
We drive a hard bargain so we thought for a bit that we weren?t going to be able to make a deal. We are experienced car buyers and the negotiations weren?t as bad as a lot of places we?ve been to but there never really fun especially when your tired and hungry. Sean gave us a protein bar and waters during the process. Ultimately the dealership wanted our business and won us over on a Hail Mary. We wanted to shop local at a local dealership but aren?t willing to make a lot of concessions to do so. I feel we got a great value on the out the door price. We were offered many extras but did not purchase any so I cannot speak to that.
The only thing that triggered us was essentially being forced to purchase a vehicle tracking device called Spireon Kahu. It is similar to LoJack and the dealer stated that they install it as a security device to protect their assets and it probably lowers their insurance cost. Long story short we did not want to purchase the tech but it was already installed on the vehicle. We negotiated the price of the tech and ultimately agreed to leave it installed as the dealer stated it would cost money to remove it. Now to the fun part. The 2015 Dodge Dart we purchased is for our teenage son. Using the app for the Tech on a smartphone we can monitor where he is at and be notified if he exceeds a set speed. We chose 65mph. We can also set up an electronic perimeter as well as monitor the vehicle battery from the Kahu app. We got an insurance discount for the active tracking system and trust me you need it when insuring teenagers. I probably sound like a Kahu salesman but hindsight we have no regrets leaving the tech installed. Just make sure you ask the sales staff whether it is installed or not and whether you will be force to purchase it or if it will increase the price of the vehicle if you want it removed. It worked out for us but it may not work out for you. Thanks Frontier for helping us find our son a safe and hopefully reliable vehicle!
2021 Dodge Durango SRT 392 review
2021 Durango SXT
April 28, 2023
By Ranch Mama Fox from Conifer, CO
Owns this car
I researched a lot of 7-seater SUVs before deciding on a 1 year old Durango... we needed something that could haul our 5 kids and also double as a commuter car with good cargo space for my husband, who travels to construction job sites all over the place. We both love our RAM trucks (mine is the 2500 horse hauler), so Dodge was a natural choice for us, but we opted for the V6 model for better gas mileage than our Hemis. The Durango did not disappoint!!
I've seen other reviews complaining about the power of the SXT... what do you honestly expect, people?! It's a 3-row SUV, a V6 simply can't put out the HP to move it like the Hellcat would (ohh, that one must be sweet!!).
That being said, we're still pleased with the performance... which is impressive for a vehicle of this size. It still hauls @ss and handles like a dream, and we live on a ranch in the Rockies so good handling on mountain roads in all manner of nasty weather conditions is an absolute MUST for us. You can tell the Durango is modeled on the Challenger chassis so it's basically a race car of an SUV, even in the V6 model. Do yourself a favor and splurge on some d@mn good all-season tires like Michelin LTX for optimum performance in any road conditions.
We've been very impressed with the fuel economy, it does well - even with my husband rallying up and down the mountain and dusting people left & right on his daily commute. Haha! That's one advantage over the V8 models, which guzzle gas as bad as our big RAM trucks. We even run it with the Eco Boost turned off, and often in Sport mode.
One thing my husband's not fond of is the fact that there is only one special jack included... and no mounts for floor jacks or jack stands. A second jack from the dealer is almost $300. So husband spent some time in his metal shop to fab an adapter for a second scissor jack, so he could rotate tires and change the oil. It's a non issue if you take your car in for service, but if you're the type to wrench on your own vehicles, it's something to bear in mind.
Interior design is nice... the only small beef I've got is the 2nd row seat backs fold down, but the whole seat doesn't fold up to more easily access the 3rd row. It's not an issue for our kids clambering over, but it could be awkward for an adult. So the little ones go in the back.
Overall, we're really pleased with our Durango SXT - even for the base model, it's got enough whistles and bells to keep us happy, and an impressive performance to economy ratio. Definitely worth every penny of the purchase price, and it's a vehicle we'll keep for a very long time.
