"I feel like the coolest mom in the car pool driving this vehicle! Other than regular main. issues (tires, oil, etc.) there have been no major problems! I feel very safe driving around with young children. We will drive this truck until it stops! :)"
"This car is hot. I love everything about my Durango; however, I wish the styling was a little more detailed in design. For it's size, the Durango offers more stock horsepower than most vehicles in its class. Overall, I would say it's the best vehicle for the buck but watch out at the pump, OUCH!!"
"we bought our 2001 2 years ago it had 70,000 miles now it has 10100 miles, the driverside window fell in...$250 (you have to buy the whole kit not just the cable??) sometimes them POWER windows dont want to work right. we just recently started to hear a howling from under the front end, to many possibilities to name one of them costing $2000. I love my truck but I hate the problems we have gotton the last year. I will trade this one in for another one soon,,,(the wood chips are starting to rott, ha ha ha)"
"This vehicle is Great to drive if you are less than 6'. Avoid 6'+. Third seat space is good with children or young adults. Second seat room is marginal for adults over 5'5". The air conditioning front/rear is marginal. The wind noise is marginal as with most SUV'S. Gas mileage is low 13/16, but power is great. Problems with poor quality rubber hoses on evaporative fuel system, causing check engine lights.
Sound system is good.
Structural integrity is very good. Paint and looks are very good."
"I've thoroughly enjoyed driving my Durango for the last 6 years. I've been thoroughly disappointed with the drivetrain. Have replaced transmission, rear-end, transfer case seal, brake rotors, brake master cylinders, brake calipers, and fuel injectors. The truck has 122,000 miles now. I'm selling it and going back to reliable Nissans. I will miss the comfort, ride, quality solid construction, and power of the 5.9L. I won't miss the repair bills."
"Bought used 2001 in 2006. Won't sell it! Use it for outdoors and it handles bumps great! 80,000 miles now. Shift on the Fly, power seats, very nice....holds it's retail value very nice too! Get one if you don't mind 15 mpg. Mine is the 4.7L and it has the performance I need."
