Dodge Durango, SUV
#509 of 1712 A little worried
Apr 06, 2001 (5:26 pm)
I recently purchased the vehicle I have wanted since they first came out, a 2001 Durango SLT. Unfortunately it was from the worst dealership on the planet...Hamburg Dodge in Hamburg, NY from the worst "salesperson" Todd Casey. Don't shop there if you can avoid it. Enough of that. From the moment off the lot a had a whinning noise starting from a stop, getting higher in pitch with acceleration and disappearing after shifting into second gear. A rear end should always make the noise so I'm thinking tranny. The "Five Star" dealership says Chrysler requires I give it 3,000 miles to break in before they will even entertain looking into it. Anyone have similar trouble?? Also had vehicle delivered with the right front tire down 18 pounds pressure (almost have empty!, even though it didn't look like it.

Durango is not doing good in today's market. It's number fail suv's in today's market. I heard from my friend that he sometime hear the noise while driving on a long trip.

Have you checked your gas pump? There is a strong possibility that it might have defective pump. Gas pump might be located at the rear. My Neon had this problem, and turned out to be the pump. Since both uses Mopar, why not?

I recently got rid of my 99 dodge durango due to the Florida lemon law, however, I felt Chrysler was very cooperative and gave me no problems whatsoever, Yet, I recently heard that they will no longer be manufacturing Durango's any longer, does anyone know if this is true?

Someone mentioned the discontinuation of the Durango. It is not true. The next generation Durango is due summer 2003.

Until 6 month ago, I have added another Hyundai's Santa Fe (look a little bit like Durango, for its strong in & out style). The SaFe (Santa Fe short name) just ranked the top safest new 2001 compact SUV in the front 60km crashtest tested by the IIHS.
The SaFe also ranked the most satisfaction SUV recently in.....
So if u are worry about the gas milages if you don't haul & often go for long trips then u can consider also added this America best value SUV(only cost me less than CDN$29k to get a fully loaded).... just like me ... using it for my delivery job. I get more stares & glances than my Durango. I will keep both SUV in my Garage until ......something really can convince me to sell this 2 beasts!
