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: Styling, comfort, handling, convenience

Cons: Gas milage, minor.

'01 Dodge Durango — In this time of gas bouncing between 3 and 5 bucks a gallon, I wonder why I would keep this 2.5 ton SUV around. But in weighing the difference between a new car payment and a little extra for gas, this Durango is a keeper. (It's paid for!!!!! Yay!!!) It is a fabulous freeway cruiser as long as the road is smooth. The leather seats are very comfortable. Especially when we do the 2200 miles to Missouri and back. I've put a K&N cold-air kit on and it lets you hear and feel the 4.7 V8 when you get heavy on the go pedal. It doesn't breathe hard when you push it up a steep mountain grade. It doesn't come up very often, but it is very nice to have the 3rd row of seats. The back is mostly for the kids, but it has room for 7 when needed. A few minor electrical issues, and a broken rear-end gear, but other than that is has been a great vehicle. I average between 15 and 18 mpg in mixed driving. I also think it is better looking than the new Durango.

Pros: V8 power, 3rd row seats

Cons: Gas Mileage, brakes

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: 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.

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. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN "SOLD"

Primary Use: Family transportation

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

Good Dodge Suv —

I bought my Durango new and I've had it ever since (11 years and 120K miles). I love the curvy fender style and the comfort of the interior space and seating. I have had to put some work into it over the years, mostly normal maintenance items (brakes, tranny, differentials, A/C recharge, etc). The main issues I have had are on the transmission. I had to get it replaced at about 60K miles and now at 120K miles, it is starting to slip again. It has been a really good vehicle for my family, holding lots of cargo and people as my kids have grown up and we've taken it on numerous tips to mountains, plains and deserts. It does great in the snow and has great power to make it over mountain passes or trails, with the 5.9L engine. I have been very happy with my Dodge, with the exception of the poor gas mileage. I get 13- 14 mpg in the city and 14 - 15.5 on the highway (not much difference). In general, I can recommend the Durango as a good general purpose SUV. ** UPDATE ** I bought a newer used car to be a daily driver. Now my daughter uses this truck. While she does not like that is has poor gas mileage and would prefer something smaller, she loves the 4x4 capabilities in the Colorado winter. She feels confident driving the Durango and goes on trips to the mountains with her sister and friends for snow boarding. It is still a solid vehicle and performs well with modest maintenance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great style and power, lots of room for passengers, good comfort and cargo capacity

Cons: Poor gas milage, transmission needs work about every 60K miles, not particularly nimble, some interior trim not holding up
