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


Review

I found the Dodge Durango to be a very reliable vehicle. I enjoy its comfortable interior design. It's also alot of fun to drive.


Favorite Features

It has lots of storage room


Suggested Improvements

The only suggestion is, find some way to improve gas mileage.

Vehicle

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


Review

Although I have low mileage on this truck, I think it is one of the best vehicles I have owned. Absolutely no initial defects, no trips to the dealer except for the ball joint recall. I tow a 3000 pound boat with the small V8 and have no problems. My only gripe is that I wish the rear glass opened. It's also hard to back up or turn sharply in 4wd on dry solid pavement. I hate the 2005 re-design. They killed the looks.


Favorite Features

The look. It looks like it has muscles. I also like the simple analog guages and controls.


Suggested Improvements

Rear glass that opens. Redesign the new model to look more like this one.

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


Review

The Durango is a truck and performs as such! I love mine, have had no major problems at 56,000 miles. It isn't perfect, but for the money it beats anything else!


Favorite Features

Visability, highway handling, dependability


Suggested Improvements

Reclining rear seats, larger 3rd seat

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


Review

One paint flaw and a transmission electric doo- hickey have been the only problems. This is my fifth Dodge. I really am a Dodge guy and this is one of their best. I am not too fond of the new body style though and will probably get a truck next. The gas mileage smokes the Ford and Chevy SUVs and it doesn't look like a big box. I tow a hybrid trailer on camping trips and am close to the GCWR and am very pleased with my performance. Get 9-13 mpg depending on terrain.


Favorite Features

Third row seats and hidden cubby in back


Suggested Improvements

They've done it now with the 5-speed trans and improved the MPG a tad. 2'nd row seating needs to be adjustable

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


Review

I have had this 02 Durango since Mar 03, and have put an average of 40000 miles a year on it. I currently have 100000 miles on it. I had one electrical problem with it, no other. It tows great, I am comfortable, but it is a little tight for my big frame. Overall, I love it. I get 17 mpg on avg, but only 9 when towing, which it does a great job of. I put a heavier duty susspension on the rear, which now it rides quite rough (rear hop), but it wasn't bad before I made the change


Favorite Features

v8, 5 sp auto, gas mileage not bad


Suggested Improvements

bigger, better ride (2004 improved both of these items)
