A serious SUV, down to its stout towing ability, generous cargo room, unyielding ride and abysmal fuel economy. The Durango is Dodge's fierce competitor in the sport-utility market. Eighty percent of its parts are shared with the Dakota, including the platform, but the Durango's frame is actually three times stiffer than the pickup's.
Unfortunately, the rough ride doesn't let you forget its truck origins. It's somewhat bouncy, and you'll be aware of the added stiffness, yet it's not miserable enough to hamper the Durango's cushy-cruiser status. The Durango may be compact on the outside, but once inside you'll be shocked by the roominess. With a 7,pound towing capacity and 88 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, it's an SUV that can be stuffed to the gills with family and friends, and still have the ability to haul your watercraft or other form of weekend fun.
However, you'll have to make a choice - eight people, or useable interior cargo space, because you can't have the best of both worlds when there's a full house. Thankfully, a standard roof rack further expands your cargo carrying options.
If you are taking advantage of the third row, you'll appreciate the ease of the fold-and-tumble forward second-row seating and the improved-for climate control system with separate second and third-row air conditioning outlets. Legroom is notable throughout, but larger folk may want to avoid the third row for anything other than short jaunts. Headroom shouldn't be an issue, thanks to the raised roofline. The interior underwent a major revamp for A new instrument panel, a Homelink transmitter available in Overhead Convenience Groupa redesigned floor console and new seat patterns give the Durango's cabin a thoroughly modern look.
Also new this year are power lumbar supports, a power passenger seat, heated leather seats with two-level temperature control, and three new colors -- Sandstone, Dark Slate Grey, and Taupe.
2001 Dodge Durango Review
Durangos come in either 4x2 or 4x4 configurations. Both versions come standard with the modern 4. Off-road, Durango is a capable, if somewhat oversized, wilderness runner, able to tackle a wide range of obstacles. The Durango also shines as a grocery-getter and soccer-team hauler. Steering is commendably responsive and overall build quality is up to par for this vehicle segment, though we'd like to see higher-grade interior materials used in certain areas.Would you like to sell products for this vehicle on Amazon.

The contact owns a Dodge Durango. While driving 55 mph, the contact attempted raise the front driver side window, but it jammed and fell back into the door. The window would not function afterwards. The same failure occurred on the front passenger side window and two rear windows.
The manufacturer stated that this was a common failure.
They further stated that the regulator needed to be replaced at the contact's expense. The contact placed screwdrivers in the windows to hold them up, and the vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 80, and current mileage wasConsumer stated the window motor on the passenger side has gone out. The window will not go up or down. She stated she could hear the motor making a noise, but nothing happened.
This started last week some time. She took the vehicle to the dealer for this problem and was told that they have been having a lot of problems with the window motors on these vehicles.
The window regulator is a big part that fits inside the door and makes the window go up and down. This is the third occasion when it has broken causing the window to slide down into the door. It costs approx.
We are not doing anything extraordinary to warrant this kind of defect in this part. Please investigate this problem ASAP!!!. Window regulator, plastic piece that allows the window to move up and down, has broken twice within the last year. About 35, miles I had the adjusters repaired on the passenger front of vehicle. Around 60, miles the adjusters failed and the seat will jerk forward about an inch while doing any acceleration, then slide back about an inch.
Somewhere around 70, miles the front drivers seat started rocking back and forth, like it was not bolted to the floor boards properly. I have power seats. I took my Durango in to have it looked at, at the dealership. I was told that they have seen a couple of vehicles with this same problem recently, and I was lucky mine would only cost 1, dollars to repair.
Other bigger vehicles cost more. Is there a recall on this problem, and why is it happening so often in my vehicle, when it should not happen at all.I love my durango and expect another miles out of it.
I liked these things the first time I saw one, and have enjoyed my Durango as it comes up on its 11th birthday at around miles. Other than that no issues for a decade, and a fantastic vehicle for my wife and two daughters.
Still driving it and plan to get at least two more years out of it. I grew up riding in Dodge vehicles and they were always great. It's clear now that Dodge is more concerned with the bottom line than with producing a safe, dependable vehicle. Every Dodge vehicle that my family has owned in this millennium has had chronic problems and ultimately died because of cheap, shoddy workmanship. I've owned 3 and this is absolutely my last one.
A shame, too, because I'd love a Charger but I don't trust these cars as far as I can throw them. That tells you something right there, but I figured hey, new engine. No big deal though. I just live in north Texas.
Note: Sarcasm. You'd better hope you never really need to slam on your brakes because you WILL find yourself in the trunk of the car ahead of you. I don't ride my brakes and I don't brake hard, but the ABS would constantly kick in. I constantly took mine in to have the brakes checked, convinced that something was horribly wrong because there's no way they could be that bad and be "normal. Not near enough power for how much gas they guzzle.
Chronic overheating problems that cost me over 3K. Replaced the radiator twice, water pump twice, fans, all of it. Ultimately, after meticulous maintenance and thousands of dollars, mine wound up with a cracked engine block and brown gaskets, destroyed engine despite being well maintained and full of fluids, and towed back from whence it came with a "sayonara" and a finger from me.
Never another Dodge. Never, ever again. I recently aquired my mother's 15 year old,mile black Dodge Durango. She has driven this car since I was 5 years old, and now she has passed it onto me. It seems Dodge really struck gold with the 4. The engine and transmission have not been rebuilt or replaced, which astonishes my entire family because we frequently hear about the horror stories people have with transmissions in Dodge RAMs and others.
Corporate must have visited the factory the day my mother's vehicle was built, especially being a FCA automobile, because it runs like a top. The only issues that I have found seem to be small electrical problems, a blown fuse every once in awhile for a driver's side taillight and the drivers door lock does not work which I suspect is result of some 'maintainance' from my mother and father.
Other than that, all the windows still roll up and down, albeit slowly, the headlights and fog lights still work, and all the dials in the instrument cluster still work. Another downside is the appalling fuel economy, with only averaging 13mpg even at 70mph and rpm on the freeway. But with the vehicle weighing almost lbs and having a 4.
All in all, I would recommend this vehicle to anyone that needs a work horse and still needs it to start everyday. Sure, the mileage is atrocious -- I average Popular searches. My Account.See the Back button — blue bar at the very top of the page — to explore more.
Add your complaint? As I am driving my blinkers and radio stopped working randomly. Causing safety issues while on the road. Add Complaint. Headlights, dash lights, and tail lights flicker intermittently. Starts slowly when lights are turned on and frequency gradually increases.

Had 2 guy help put out the fire. Now I have no radio in lights dash lights cig lighter for phone charger. One day I was out shopping parked my car got out tried to lock doors they would lock unless I manually did it. The next day I noticed my headlights, inside lights, windshield wipers, and volume control on staring wheel would not work. That same day when I started my car it started great as always but there was a clicking noise on the driver side by the front wheel.
I took it to midas they diagnosed it and fixed it, 3 days later my car did the same thing he told me to take it to the Dodge dealer. I've tried they wont call back! After 4 days of my car being parked with the security light on my car is now dead.
I've read online that its a alarm system and I need a key to program it. I bought my car used from the dealer and did not receive an alarm key, alarm key pad or even a spare key fir my car. I see a lot of reviews online about this issue, this has been going on for 1 month or longer now.
I believe its a factory issue.
