2000 Dodge Durango SLT+ 4.7L Magnum from North America
Best vehicle I have ever owned. Will own one again
30,000 - brake pads.
50,000 - brake pads.
100,000 - new spark plugs.
110,000 - new rotors and pads (back brakes still great!)
120,000 miles - replaced ball joints.
140,000 - front wheel bearings.
180,000 - changed plugs for fun.
This truck is seriously fast and extremely comfortable. We got this truck with only 8200 miles on it, and have never experienced engine sludge with it. We use Mobil 1 full synthetic, and changed it every 4,000 miles on the dot.
This was the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned, And I will own another one.
In the end (when I sold it), it had over 184K on it, and it ran better than new! I had done numerous mpg/performance increase mods, including twin cold air intake with K&N filters, Superchips, exhaust, throttle body and TBS, performance plugs. I beat the S*&^ out of this truck every day and it never broke. EVER. In the end she did 60 in under 7 seconds and ran the 1/4 t 93mph, BEAST IN THE SNOW, Nothing could STOP IT! MPG after all the mods was 21MPG going 75 on the interstate.
I can't believe any of these people on this site could ever have a complaint about this truck, and to the people who get engine sludge, MAYBE TRY A DIFFERENT OIL BRAND? SWITCH TO FULL SYNTHETIC AND GET MPG + LONGER ENGINE LONGEVITY.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
