Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: POWER. Attitude. Functionality. Acceptable (realistic) Cabin Space. Handling. Towing Capability. Comfort. Decent Quality.
Cons: Still waiting for Cons w/ 150,000 miles on the odometer.

Pros: Roomy and fun to drive

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: Optional full-time/Part-time 4WD, Reasonable price
Cons: Uncomfortable Ride, Fuel Economy, Passenger room, cargo space, roof rack
The Bottom Line: An OK SUV, there are better choices: Chevy Tahoe, Ford Expedition, Nissan Pathfinder and Mitsubishi Montero. Search around before buying

We used to rent a truck when we wanted to go camping for a weekend. Most frequently we've been renting Dodge Durangos, because it is the only thing big enough to fit our camping stuff in. The rental place only has the top-of-the-line Limited models with ... read more

Pros: We no longer own one!
Cons: Everything Else
The Bottom Line: Don't buy this SUV- a waste of money!!

My fiance purchased the 1999 Durango and immediately began having problems with it. While under warranty, the transfer case needed to be replaced. Per the technician, there was a random nut "rolling around" in the transfer case that demolished it. Soon ... read more

May 1, 2002 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: extremely attractive and powerful.
Cons: tends to want to tip in high winds and corners poorly
The Bottom Line: DO not buy as the seating is uncomfortable and the handling is stiff and you feel like you are going to tip over.

I own four SUVs so I am not without experience. Recently I rented a Dodge Durango and drove 1100 miles. This was an excellent test and I would recommend doing this to any one who wants to buy a new car. While going through Wyoming we encountered high ... read more

Work or Play, On/Off Road, 47K miles!

Oct 20, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Powerful, versatile, comfortable, and tough. Plenty of room for a family with toddlers.
Cons: Difficult to get in 3rd seat with child seat in the middle. Minivan its not.
The Bottom Line: It's a great compromise for both on and off road. Think of it as a "Dual Sport" of SUVs.

I bought my Durango new and currently have over 47,000 miles on it. So, I guess you can consider this opinion a result of a long-term test. My Durango is the SLT+ with 5.9L V8 and 99% of all the options available during this model year. ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: Nice Looks and a 3rd Row Seat
Cons: Gas Mileage, Gremlins
The Bottom Line: Good looks, Lots of power, but mechanically obsolete. Poor gas mileage, and keeps you wondering when the next gremlin will rear its ugly head....

I leased my 1999 Durango SLT Plus in April of 99. It was the top of line (leather, CD Player, 3rd Seat, Overhead Console) I chose this truck over the Ford Expedition (too expensive), GMC Yukon & Chevy Tahoe (No 3rd Seat in 1999). The Durango is a nice ... read more

Pros: Styling, power, maneuverability, comfort
Cons: Fuel consumption
The Bottom Line: I love mine. And as you can see, most other people love theirs too!

I've read many of the "non-recomendations" and I'm puzzled! I bought (leased) mine in July of 1999 and to this day have not had a single problem. The ride is stable and quiet. The fuel economy with any V8 is going to be high, so that's my only ... read more
