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


Review

We bought this Durango as 2nd owners from a rental liquidator and were worried. But we have had no problems what-so-ever. I trust this vehicle in the Alaskan elements with my children on board. It's been a wonderful family vehicle. I feel very safe with the side curtain airbags in the both the front and back seats. I couldn't live without the third row seat! The cargo area is spacious enough for our two dogs, or a full Costco run, and has made a conveinent diaper changing station on more than one occasion! We've taken excellent car of our Durango, but I have to say it has taken even better car of us.

No breakdowns except for standard service calls. One emission sensor failed during warranty.

Good performance. Excellent leather seating and styling with seude accents and special details. Excellent factory wheels and tires. Good seating for 7. Nice brakes and handling for an SUV of this size.

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


Review

Since the first time I saw a Durango, I have always been intrigued by them. I finally bought one, and thus far I am very happy with it. I love that it is truck based, because I like to tow now and then. I also like the ability to drive through mud and snow. Love the fact it has a third row and makes a person feel as though they are in a tank. If you want a capable vehicle this is for you. If you just want a people hauler I suggest a mini-van or car based SUV, because this thing only gets about 13 mpg. Ride is pretty good.


Best Features

Heated seats, AWD. I love leather, big rims for big tires. Aggressive and advanced looks. Great sounding V8. Steering wheel controls for the radio.


Worst Features

My Durango does not have ABS in the front and that is someting I would really like. My previous vehicle (1996 Grand Cherokee) had 4-wheel ABS and that is a really nice feature in North Dakota-Minnesota. I combated this with some new tires, but still get the ABS all around if you can it is worth it.

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


Review

OK family vehicle. Has enough power. Transmission shifting needs help. A/C is very poor.


Best Features

Easy to drive, plenty of room for a mid-size suv. Option of six and seventh passengers ok if people are between 3-8 yrs old. No cargo room if loaded with people.


Worst Features

Better A/C unit, transmission shift kit and smoother ride.

2002 Dodge Durango SUV SLT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this vehicle new in '01. Have had zero problems and I'm very happy with the performance of the 4.7 engine. Towing a 17 foot boot is a non-issue. The gas mileage is ok. The paint has put up with the everyday use and its kept outside 24/7. The rear end is a little loose in the snow while in 2wd. Other than that a real nice ride for this car. Plenty of go when needed.


Best Features

Fold down 3rd row seats. Rear air. ABS. Stock color correct running boards which was an easy bolt on.
