2003 Dodge Durango SUV SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

We bought our Durango new as the 1st replacement for our minivan era as our oldest began high school. It has faithfully, stylishly, comfortably moved 2 kids across country to college and I don't want another car. I wish it would last forever. I love it! Solid, dependable, built to keep a family safe and on the move! And nothing more than normal maintanance...and one water pump! 152,411 miles and still runs like day one! And I swear the mileage is improving...it would have to!


Worst Features

Nothing, it's perfect!

2003 Dodge Durango SUV SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

If I had to buy a vehicle over again, this would not be the one, even if gas prices were not so high. It was a good vehicle, but only for the first couple of weeks I had it. I spend an averge of $600 dollars a month on a vehicle that I don't care about.


Best Features

It is wide. 3rd row seating and how it folds down to give me more room.


Worst Features

Air condition routing. Better gas mileage. More leg room for the driver.

2003 Dodge Durango SUV SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The 5.9 V-8 is awesome! All the power you need and then some. But remember, each time the pedal hits the floor, that'll cost you a few bucks on gas for that split second. 3rd row seat is easy to fold and for adults under 6 feet tall, not THAT bad.


Best Features

5.9 v 8 power is strong. Looks great on the road. Not too big, not too small. Turning radius is better than my wife's compact import.


Worst Features

Gas milage, offer more exterior colors and rim option. Chrome looks reat with the black. Rear window opening and moon roof.

2003 Dodge Durango SUV SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my Durango in late 2003 used, with only 7000 miles from CarMax. Very reliable, great power with a 5.7 Liter V-8 engine. Good fuel economy for a V- 8 (about 15 mpg). Great pickup and third row seat that folds into floor is a great feature. I like its style better than the new 2004. Interior design is also wonderful.


Best Features

Powerful V-8 3rd row seat that folds down Size.. between mid- size and full- size


Worst Features

Offer a HEMI Offer a retracting roof like the Yukon.

Review

This 2WD version of the Durango comes with a very powerful V8. I love the power. I find that I'm getting 14.8mpg on the interstate. That's not great. Otherwise this is a very comfortable vehicle. The leather seats are very nice.


Best Features

Nice interior.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.
