A waste of time and money
I now know I am not the only one has suffered the perils of owning a Durango. I have owned this truck for three months and have the privilege of actually driving it for approx. three weeks. It's horrible!
At 63,000 miles my engine grenaded shooting rods through the oil pan, likely due to oil pressure problems several of us owners have had. I replaced the engine which I had paid out-of-pocket, unfortunately I have no warranty, and now the transmission is on the fritz. I must add that the transmission problem happened no less than twelve hours after picking up the vehicle from the engine replacement shop. It's a nightmare! So it sits in my driveway, not able to move, just looking good and wasting time.
I read in someone's review that they had replaced their transmission THREE times. Well, I can't say I'm going to put up with that. A patch and seal job should do the trick, giving me just enough time to drive it to the dealer and trade it in. Even after a $4,300 engine swap and other miscellaneous investments, I'm ready to cut my losses and get a new car. I would rather have a vehicle I could rely on rather that wait it out for the next major problem.
--> Note to self, no more Dodges.
A beautiful truck with skeletons in the closet. Don't trust it.
Durango's do have a very nice infinity stereo package though, a great sound, the guys in the shop will love it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
