2002 Dodge Durango 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 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.

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


Review

I've put about 40,000 on my Durango thus far and must say I love it still. Rugged, nice ride with plenty of creature comforts for the family. The 4.7L engine is more than adequate. Only repair I've had to do so far is replacing a cracked vacuum hose. Beyond that, it's been a very reliable vehicle.


Best Features

Power, styling, room

Review

My little DeeDee. I loved this truck, right up to the day my wife totalled it out last week. Great ride, great looks, very comfortable. We went across the country twice in it, and had a great time. On time, at 12,000 miles a solenoid in the trans went out. That was the only problem in over 60,000 miles. Good power, good towing vehicle. It sounded good too, and didn't have a Hemi. Just a little baby 4.7. I just a bought new one, although it's not as cool looking. My wife survived a 50 MPH accident in this truck, with NO injuries. Her lipstick was even still in place after the air bag hit her in face. She walked out just fine.


Best Features

Third seat, good height, great ride. Overhead console was cool, lots of storage space.


Worst Features

None.

Review

My wife and I purchased this vehicle originally for its superior comfort. My wife has a very bad back. After the purchase we found that the handling and per formance were far superior to other makes and models of equal size. We love the overall feel and ride.


Best Features

The "heated" leather seats and the very positive steering.


Worst Features

My vehicle could use a little larger side view mirrors, due to the limited surround vision.
