2000 Dodge Durango SLT 4.7 V8 from North America
A nice SUV, but expensive to fix
The Fuel pump quit at 42000 miles.
At 48000 miles I had to replace the front brakes and pads.
A real nice SUV.
Even though I have had to put about $1000.00 in repairs since I bought it last year, It is a real nice truck to drive, But a little hard on Gas.
My only concern has been when I was in an accident this past winter (I hit a tree head on) my airbags never deployed. The dealership had no answer for that even though the whole front end was taken out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

No kidding! If your airbags had deployed, you'd be looking at a lot more than a $3500 repair.

This is another comment from the person who wrote the original comment. My durango now has 110.000 miles on it. I have only had to replace tires and brake pads. I love My durango hope it lasts me years to come.

This is from the person who wrote the original entry.
The truck would not pass inspection this year the ball joints were shot had to be replaced (the truck had 115000 miles on it).
Front brakes had to be replaced (they were only 2 years old)
It also was having issues with the Engine just stalling out at any given moment.
Just traded it for another SUV that was better on gas and is supposed to have a good reputation.
I would not buy another Durango just too thursty on gas and too expensive to keep fixing. It is a nice truck, but you need to have the check book along with it to keep up with the repairs.
