1999 Dodge Durango SLT + 5.2L V8 from North America
Be very careful, not a car for longevity
Various things went wrong under warranty, i.e. fuel pump, upholstery issues. Dealer said fuel pump was from bad gas or it needed a $400.00 cleaning. After the warranty was up at 75,000 a slew of things went wrong. Belt spring tensioner, throttle position sensor replaced, spark plug wires replaced (normal), water pump, fuel sensor. The 4x4 indicator lights are completely out, but the truck will still go into four wheel high. When I try to put it into four wheel low it grinds and rejects the shift. It knocks something fierce, there are transmission bumps, it idles rough, the heater and air conditioner are very weak.
Buy a Toyota and forget your Buy American stuff, I tried it and have lost miserably. This truck gets about 13.5 MPG at best.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I bought a 1999 Dodge Durango SLT +. This is the worst car I have ever owned! I bought it used 2 1/2 years ago. I was told at the dealership it wasn't under warranty (veh has less than 70,000 miles). Two months after purchase the oil pump went out. Two months after that another oil pump and rear axes problems. Two months later the vehicle the speedometer and idle problems. Then the serpentine belt, transmission, and now the water pump. I can't wait until I get rid of this junk. No more Daimler Chrysler products for me. Its back to my good old brand GMC/Pontiac.
