1999 Dodge Durango from North America
Looks good, No brains
I would agree that the Durango has a great look, but has major engine and internal problems.
I have replaced the intake manifold gasket twice, both times having to pay for it. To the tune of around 700.00 each time.
I have had 4 sensors go out, including the transmission sensor to tell when to change gears.
I also have a window motor that is bad and the window will not move.
I was also losing antifreeze, this was also fixed at my expense by fixing a small pin hole in the radiator and the gasket also had a very small leak.
I have also had transmission problems that were fixed at my expense.
I have also replace tie rods and bearings at my expense.
I have also noticed that the air conditioner does not work very well and the car does not run very well with the air conditioner on.
Like most others all the things that have gone wrong with my Dodge Durango they have not had complaints on, therefore are not covered and the customer most pay for them. I would agree with most Durango owners that I will never buy another Dodge product for as long as I drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I had the same oil burning problem with my 99 Durango SLT. 5.9 Liter. The dealer had done all of the oil changes every 3000-3500 miles and no issues. Actually had shavings in the oil when I took it in to have it checked due to loud knocking at 37,000 miles. Service department went to bat and got Dodge to replace the whole motor. It's important to stay on this so it doesn't get to where mine was if you're out of warranty.
