Huge Interior, Race Car Like Handling, Off Road Beast. — This truck is awsome! it has the most comfortable seats I have ever sat in. It is so fast you will forget you are in a seven passenger SUV. It handles like a race car. Forget the minivan, this is what you need.

Can't think of anything I don't like.

Perfect! — I have had this car for eight years now and cannot find anything I like as well to replace it with. The new Durangos just don't have the same look and feel as the older ones and other trucks are either much too big or look like stations wagons on steroids.

My Vehicle — I love my Durango. It has a V8 Magnum Engine. Very nice acceleration. So far I haven't had to replace anything other than a headlamp bulb. It does pretty decent on the gas usage. Also wonderful for when I have the kids in the vehicle they can be separated.

Good Looking Solid Reliable Vehicle — The automatic model selection had no trim levels. My Durango was an SLT with the 4.7L V8. I really enjoyed it, but when gasoline started approaching $4.00 per gallon, I decided it was no longer economical to drive, so I traded it for my '04 Explorer. In retrospect, I should have kept it. The MPG wasn't that bad considering its size and weight. I got between 14 and 19 MPG overall. I liked everything about it, except the little irritating clickety-clack the valvetrain components made on a cold start. Other than that, the 4.7L V8 was the "little engine that could"...It would out-muscle engines of much larger displacement and horsepower ratings. Transmission was excellent, though a little mushy feeling. It never gave me trouble though. The interior was somewhat utilitarian looking and very truck-like. This comes as no surprise since the Dakota pickup is its sibling. I'd definitely recommend a 1st gen (1998-2003) Dodge Durango to anyone.

A Great Little All Around Vehicle — I Bought my Durango used, and although it was high maintenance at first to fix what the previous owner didn't take care of, This vehicle is the best overall vehicle I've ever owned. It is sure footed at all sane speeds, has more power than it needs, and will cruise at 70 miles an hour all day long. Keep oil and coolant right and I think it'll last forever. The 4.7 does not like engine Heat! The body style is one I've always liked, much more than the newer ones, and the fit, finish and design of the interior is outstanding. It should have disc brakes on the rear as well as the front, but although not the best, the equipment works very well with only normal maintenance. I have 82000 miles on this little gas ( 16-18 mpg)hog highway tank, and hope to put a lot more on it. Haven't had it in mud, but pushed snow with the front bumper while hunting up in Northern Vermont. I would highly reccommend this vehicle for any one who takes pride in owning a good vehicle, and doesn't mind a weekend here and there maintaining it.

Pros

Plenty of room, comfortable seat for long drives, great look, and a decent performer in all areas (for an SUV).

Cons

MPG, but you do have to pay to play.

I Love The R/t — I personally think the first gen Durango is one of the SUV's that can fit almost anywhere and is a good overall SUV. It has some power when you need to pass and has great looks IMO. There is good handling, not recommended for auto crossing lol, in and out of corners and everyday driving.

Pros

This has been a great automobile addition in our family. Everything about this vehicle has been excellent. It was a replacement for a 2000 model Durango that was totaled when T-Boned $ years ago, and my wife liked it so well, she wanted to replace it with this car.

Cons

NONE

Great Automobile — I like everything about this vehicle. It has been one of the most reliable cars we have owned and would buy it again. It has plenty of seating and cargo room. Comfortable to take on long trips and a pleasure to drive.

I thought it was an okay car, it looked sharp. All black!

Cons

The front ball bearings and roders and brakes seemed to give me problems if I remember correctly. The air conditioner too.

Looks Good But Won't Purchase Another One. — I thought it looked nice but it didn't seem dependable as my others. I had too many problems and got rid of it. I'm bought my escalade after that. This car was a gas guzzling machine. It was a v-8

My New, Old Winter Beater — Just got my 2001 Dodge Durango a few weeks ago to use as my winter driver. It's too early for a total review but so far so good. I'm going to keep it under 5,000 miles a year on this and I'm hoping to get at least 30,000 miles out of this truck without any major issues. I guess we'll see.
