Re: Wanting to buy a Durango
We bought a 2000 new and really like it. It is my wifes daily driver and it replaced our aging '91 Grand Caravan. The only thing we have had it in for under warranty is the trans shifted funny (still does). I really don't think anything is wrong with the trans, it is just a case of too many variables controling when it shifts (ie: throttle position, vehicle speed, engine temp, vehicle load (map) etc.) and under certain conditions the trans just doesent know what to do. Nothing else has gone wrong in two years and 46,000 miles.
We have the SLT package with 31x10.50 tires and 15x8 wheels, 360 V8, and the third seat. Do not buy one without the third seat, the re-sale is impossible! The 4.7 is a decent motor as well as the 318 (if it was still offered) but I wanted the biggest motor I could get. Other than having less room than the Caravan, everything else is a plus!
