weak towing, crappy heads
By zcarguy73 on
2002 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Bought my durango for 9 g's with 32000 miles. for 30000 miles no problem. Started falling apart at 60000 miles. The window regulators are constantly breaking. Had an overheating problem at 70000 miles while towing 2000 pounds (and thats a maybe). No big deal so I thought. Changed out the cooling system and still overheating. You guessed it, blown heads. I loved this car until now. Time to move on. Never again will I buy a dodge gas vehicle. Seems there diesel's are the only thing worth it.
I have had a lot of fun with the 4x4. I have been in some spots where I knew my vehicle was too heavy and I knew it was going to get stuck, but hte 4 lo pulled it out like nothing. Also the engine is very quick. fun to drive.
Fuel economy!!!! Come on, its a 4.7 liter v8 that gets worse fuel economy that the ford 5.4. Stop selling crap engines that blow heads. The 4.7 was supposed to be the fix to the 5.2 engine's head problems but just lives out dodge's crap legacy.
