Pros

There is a lot of space in this vehicle.

Cons

This space is no good if it will not run.  Working on my 14th PCM, they even admit they are bad, and it is going to be a chore to find one that works.  ABS/Brake light module on for years.  Driving down the highway and it will just shut off!  Very dangerous as the power goes out of the steering and brakes.  This is the worst car ever.   Look at car complaints dot com, and look it up.  It is ridiculous!

Clunker Of The Century — See cons above. Worst vehicle ever. This car is dangerous, unreliable, and it is inconceivable that no one will do anything about it. It is all of the internet as a mess of a vehicle. I just hope no one has died due to the problems it has.

Love It — Zero repair costs with 110,000 miles. Fits 8 people comfortably, and drives like a dream! I don't think there s a dollar amount tat would buy this rig from me. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking to get a used SUV for a good price.

Pros

Don't buy it

Cons

It always breaks and suffers from bad engineering

They Work If You Get One Given To You Then I Guess Drive It Til The Tranny Goes. — All I can say about this truck is that if it had been built better it could have been great. I spent over $8000 dollars just to keep this thing running over two years but when it ran and I needed it to tow, it did everything I needed it to do. It was just too expensive to keep fixing the bad engineering that went into this truck. I did not mind the bad gas mileage which peaked at 13 mpg and I NEVER got stuck in anything. The 360 could have put out a little more and the transmissions should last longer than 100k miles. I had to do a complete rebuild on mine. Other wise it build and size was perfect and even with all the problems I loved to drive my durango.

It Was A Pleasure — Loved this SUV from the beginning. And, it was reliable for many years. The transmission was replaced once and I ended up trading it because it was going out again. Because it was over ten years old, it was time to trade instead of sink more money into it. Quite a few parts were replaced through the years. Can't remember them all, but overall the vehicle was one of the best I've ever had.

Its Not A Bad Suv. — It is a gas pig but it will pull a house from its foundation. It has the 5.9l 4x4 w/392 gears. I am disappointed with mopars rusting issues and their idea of fixing the rust under the manufacture warranty.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Think The Wife Likes It More Then Me. — It goes awesome if fuel mileage was more then 12 mpg i would like it so much better. I purchased it for $900 at the junk yard done a couple of bolt on modifications new custom exhaust tie rod and a belt tensioner. For almost 200k on it, it goes amazing

Love It! — awesome truck! pretty powerful 5.2l 318 dodge magnum. comfortable interior with loads of space for hauling almost anything. mods are somewhat easy to do and parts are inexpensive to buy, great sound if you put a different exhaust setup on it.

Pros

Built tough, good towing capacity

Cons

Terrible gas mileage

Great For People Who Can Afford The Gas — It was a great truck with awesome V8 power, but the fuel economy was just too bad for me to keep it. I got about 13 miles per gallon in it. However, it could take a beating, I'll give it that. I've had it 3 feet up in the air and it came down with the only damage being alignment

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Durango — I bought this truck new and now it is 10 years old and has 196,000 miles! Have I mentioned that I love this truck. This vehicle is a real workhorse. It hauls my tools, my boat, and my shavings to the barn.
