2000 Dodge Durango from North America

Summary:

Not worth it

Faults:

The Durango fit all of our needs and it looked nice. We had no problems in the beginning, only that quickly changed. The seats are tearing and fading.

The car over heats when its hot outside. The car over heats if we turn the air conditioner on in the back and front. We took the Durango in to be looked at and was told there is nothing they can find. We can't go through traffic without pulling over to allow the car to cool off.

The oil gets changed on a regular basis.

Now the motor light came on.

The battery cables need to be shifted to get the car started.

General Comments:

The car is very spacious and comfortable.

This car feels as if it is going to turn over very easy.

2000 Dodge Durango SLT 5.9 from North America

Summary:

Good car, Good value, Take care of it and it will take care of you!

Faults:

The only problems I have had with this car is the back windshield wiper had to be replaced as it was loose.

I had to replace the thermostat housing at 65,000 miles because it got a crack in it, but only cost me $20.00. I installed myself.

The driver side second seat handle to bring the seat up does not work, but hasn't since I purchased it.

General Comments:

This is a very powerful SUV it has the 5.9 liter engine.

The third row seat it a little tight, but comes in handy.

Just normal wear and tear other than that, its stylish and has run very good thus far.

2000 Dodge Durango RT 5.9 litre from North America

Summary:

Excellent tow vehicle

Faults:

My biggest problem with this vehicle 2000 Durango RT. I finally got fixed after reading of another Durango owner with similar problems that wrote into a column that a well known Boston auto repair expert diagnosed. The problem was an annoying shifting of the vehicle ranging from 150-200 RPM between RPM ranges of 2,000-2200 RPM during normal acceleration. I had taken the Durango to several repair shops with no resolution until I followed the advice of the above named mechanic and changed the transmission modulator valve. It was a $20 item and easily installed on the outside of the transmission. Since then the annoying revolution changes has been eliminated. Other than the RT has to use a high quality grade of premuim fuel and is heavy on gas it is a fine SUV.

What did the annoying change sound like? Your best description, because I have a sound when going up hills or going from one gear to the next (it seems)
