1998 Dodge Durango SLT 318 from North America
Love my Durango
Had the battery replaced (under warranty) 2 times before 30,000 miles, not Chrysler fault, it was the battery manufacturers I was told, local dealer replaced both times no complaint.
Just replaced the ball joints. At 50,000 miles I think that is not much to have go wrong.
Not happy with the rusting window edges, but have checked out the replacements, and not that bad, I will replace them.
As for the gas mileage, I knew when I got it what it was, and we took it to Disney, and the comfort and the dependability far out weighted the mileage, and by the way the mileage was not that bad.
I waited and shopped many places for my truck, I do not regret getting it at all. My sons are bugging me to sell it to them, and I want to keep it.
I agree with another persons posting, the key is to maintain your vehicle, like, rotate tires, balance, align, and regular oil changes. Works for us.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought my 98 Durango SLT July 12th 2005. It had 103k miles on it. One the road, using high test gas, I get an average of 17 miles per gal. I love the way it rides. I just had the transmission services because I wasn't sure when it was done last. The day I bought it, I did service it, I use a good oil filter and Castoil 20W50 oil. I do the oil change no later than every 3000 miles, add injector cleaner and lube all the joints. I'm from the time before computers and I think it has more electronics than should be on it, but, I'm happy with mine so far. RT.
