Vehicle

2002 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Spendy and ridiculous transmission replacement @ 81,000 miles. Mechanic discovered broken retainer ring when pan was dropped and filter removed. The truck made no noise and showed no sign of trouble, however metal rings are not supposed to be kicking around in the case. The truck wasn't even in the shop for this, the D,N,2,1 shift indicator wouldn't light up. Beware, these trannies can have issues. The truck has never been off road or pulled a boat. A Jasper transmission will run you $2500.00 plus install. For a bonus, I have had the front brakes redone 3 times in 3 years, Dodge dealer first, (had to go to small claims because the rotors got fried), next Les Schwab, (rotors grooved), got hot

Favorite Features

Solid ride with lots of power, (still knocks badly when stepped on), heated seats were nice until they quit twice.

Suggested Improvements

Front brakes are weak at best, and the transmission? don't know, but I won't be buying Dodge again. Extend the 3 yr/36,000 powertrain warranty to 100,000 miles.
