Really, only 18%? That's finally coming down into my price range! I've had good luck buying used cars, even ones with a bad reputation. Usually the previous owner has fixed all the cheap factory parts and then bails out in disgust, leaving me to get a cheap car that I drive for another 100,000 miles.
I bought my 2004 Durango about one year ago. I loved it for about 6 months, and it had 142000 kms on it when it started to have noises from the HEMI motor. I had to put a new Hemi in, which cost an additional $7500.
I had it back for 2 months, and the starter went, which cost installed over $500. This time it was only only a couple of weeks until it wouldn't start again, and I had to have it towed for the second time, and they said that the ground cables needed to be replaced, another $500.
Another two weeks later, it needed to be towed again; this time they said that the computer needed to be updated. They said that for some reason it damaged the power windows switch in the drivers door so that needed to be replaced; altogether this time it cost $920.
Two days later I had to have it towed again back to the dealer because it won't start again. Have to wait until Monday to find out what the excuse will be this time.
I have to say that as much as I love the look of the Durango, it is just one problem after another. Wish I never bought this truck. I paid $15000 when I bought it, and have spent another $10000 in 1 year on repairs.
Dodge should be embarrassed by putting this on their customers.
I just took my 274000 mile 2003 Durango company car to Hazelton Pa, and I drove with no complaint up the Weatherly Mountain. Hill climb road, no issues. This hill is seen on You Tube. Great SUV, over-maintained, nice company vehicle, same engine.
