"Owned this SUV from New. Never let me down. Tow double axle u haul trailers fully loaded occasionally with out any problem. Shipped it twice to England for a thought round Europe. It is even registered in UK for permanent use in the Europe."
"I bought this SUV new in 2002 and have had no major mechanical problems. The power seat had a problem that cost $800 at the dealership to fix, that's the only problem I've had. It's never left me stranded on the side of the road. Dodge gets a bad rap but I love mine."
Pros: "Comfortable drive, great look, roomy, fun to drive"
Cons: "Gas mileage, tranny issues mimic need 4tune up"

"I love this vehicle! I would recommend it to anyone who wants an SUV. It's not good on gas mileage and can have transmission problems that can mimic the need for a tune-up, however it is a great vehicle. Mine handles excellently in ice and snow. During a blizzard when monster trucks and other 4wheel drive vehicles were getting stuck and immobilized, my green "beast" powered through without a problem. The original body style is unmatched and having the third row doesn't take away from the aesthetic. It's a comfortable drive with that monster power noise upon starting that says "this is a truck"! It's a large roomy truck but easy to see the road and surrounding in (I'm a short person and I have a less obstructed view in my truck than in a car). It's worth the value."
Pros: "Great torque, comfortable, great traveling vehicle"
Cons: "transmissions can be quirky"

"Bought this suv from a family member, its now on its 3rd transmission, had a new bumper put in, new hoses, lines, ect. I drive 150 miles with it weekly and never skips a beat, (knock on wood). 5.9 has amazing power for size of vehicle, never downshifts going up hills, and going 75 I'm still only at 1,800 RPM. Power seat, all speakers work, everything works! Transmissions can be a bit quirky but when you know the shift points, its great. She really pulls. Great traveling vehicle, steering is great, (nice and tight, unlike other rams)."
