1999 Dodge Durango SLT 5.3 V-8 from North America
For 30k, look before you leap
The transmission wouldn't shift, replaced by the dealer, it took 5 days, loaner car was provided.
The power windows at the back went out, the dealer replaced all 4 motors.
Fit and finish suck for a 30k truck.
Front-end ball joints seem to be an ongoing problem for Durango's.
This truck has a 25 gallon gas tank and a huge appetite for gas. I average 10 m.p.g.
The 318 is a stout motor, not a tire scorcher though.
I have since traded to an Isuzu Rodeo LS. Much better truck in all aspects, and a 10 year warranty to boot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

10 mpg? Do you drive uphill all the time while towing a horse trailer? I've got a cherry '99 Durango with 80k and get 18 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. Try taking it out of afterburner chief.
Getting rid of a Durango for a Rodeo? I'm speechless.

99 Durango SLT 70k miles. Average 13mpg in town, 18 highway. Rear Driver side door lock acting up, but other than that, it's a gem... (knock on wood)
