I think it is a nice vehicle
My 2000 Dodge Durango was a Programmed Car, but it was in good condition when I bought it. Then...
Btw - the AC went out (while we were on family vacation about 500 miles from home)
I had to get the compressor and dryer replaced to solve that problem.
Driver side door and rear passenger door no longer locks. They also makes the loud noise when locking. I was told that the actuator need to be replaced. It will cost approx. $500 to replace both.
Btw - fan clutch went out (while on vacation again. Had to rent a car and SUV had to be towed home). Fan clutch had to be replaced. I thought that would be it.
Shortly after that, my transmission appeared to be straining, my RMPs would go up until I get to 45-50 mph then would drop down to 1-2 rpms. So my transmission had to be rebuilt. The transmission seems to still be straining, but I haven't taken it back to the mechanic yet.
If anyone out there is having the same problem I am having with the RPMs, please respond. Thank you.
I like my Dodge Durango other than the problems, I think it really has served me well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
