2006 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 5.7 Hemi
Great value, useful, easy to own, great blue collar Dodge
Slight noise from CV joint.
Bought it as a family car for my wife to drive. I also use it for personal use; my wife is a stay at home mom.
I changed the EGR valve when I bought it, as the code indicated it was not working properly. Other than that, it has needed no repairs.
Great view of road, easy to drive and park. Basic interior comfort not plush, but OK.
Good performance truck foundation allows for good towing or rough use potential. I adjusted the torsion bars to allow for better clearance, and installed 20 inch wheels and tires off a Ram truck.
Fuel economy in town is bad; our drives are usually short distance and often the engine doesn't completely warm up. All Hemis have a bit of valve noise.
These vehicles are prone to rust; check inside the doors and beneath the fuel filler.
Power steering pump is noisy like a Ford truck.
Overall very reliable and very cheap to buy used; females like the styling so it's easy to please your wife and wallet too. Kid like the DVD.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
