Pros

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pros

Very reliable, cheap to fix. Four wheel drive works great! If properly maintained it will last a lifetime!

Cons

The fuel efficiency isn't great for the power the 4.7L produces. I averaged 11 to 12 mpg with 90% of my driving at 45 to 55 mph. I did a computer swap to give me a 2nd overdrive gear, which helped a ton on the interstate. What you give up in MPGs will come back to you in reliability.

Amazing Vehicle For A High School Student, Or Anyone Looking For A Winter Driver. — The only thing I didn't like was the fast that you can't get a suspension lift for a Durango in 2001 to 2003, and that it didn't have a HEMI option. Other than that, like I said, for the 235hp it's rated at, 11.5 mpg isn't very exciting. Is capable of hitting 16 to 17 mpg on the highway if you keep your rpms under 2500.

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.

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.
