dodge durango??

Postby huntall6 » Sat Dec 11, 2010 12:53 pm

i was just wonderin, about the durango. my wife really likes the way that they look and that they have a third row seat. the one that we are lookin at is a 1998 with really low miles and i was just wonderin what kind of fuel milage they get in the real world. also how they hold up over time. i briefly had a dakota and it was a great little truck but i just needed somethin big with an oval :biggrin: . thats the only expierience that i have with gas dodges. any reviews on them would be great.

o and this particular vehicle is 4X4 with a 5.2l V-8 SLT model with cloth interior and power everything.

Reliability seems to be decent with them. Mileage is going to suck, probably 12-15 city and maybe 15-17 highway, but realistically probably less. I know a lot of people driving grand cherokees with 5.2s and they are reporting about those numbers for mileage in a lighter, smaller vehicle.

friends dad had one, and he loved it! held up well and was reliable, and he said he got around 16hwy with it

cupple kids at school have durangos and they beat the hell out of them and they have held up great!
20+mph in durango + curb= still not broke durango!

I know several people with them and they constantly complain about the 14 to 15mpg the are getting. and they tend to rust quickly but I still like the older ones a lot, Would like to have one some day to play with. The newer style are just plain UGLY :hammer:
