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


Review

Refreshing for an American built SUV.
Ride is somewhat sporty and pretty
predictable in manuvering. Good bang
for the buck with a touch of German
quality and engineering. Almost has
a "hotrod" appeal.


Best Features

Powerful engine with a complimenting exhaust note. Super smooth transmission and responsive but stable rack and pinion steering. 4-wheel disc brakes.


Worst Features

Add a floor mounted "Slapstick" shifter. Remove unessary running boards. Add a moonroof & padded dash. Far rear windows should pop out like Caravan's.

2003 Dodge Durango R/T 4WD 4dr SUV (5.9L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is one of the wrost SUV's I have
ever owned. This will be my last Dodge
after 30 of Dodges. After renting a
both Ford and Chevy SUV's for both
road and off road, the Dodge does not
compare in quailty. Enginee Problems
(I use Mobil 1) bad handeling in the
wind and I'm lucky to get 15 - 20 up
mountain interstate. 18 wheelers pass
me. The dealers have no idea of what
the problem is. This is my 2nd and my
last bad Dodge.


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Buy a Ford or Chevy!

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


Review

Purchased on May 6, 2003...
I did enjoy it for the 1st 5 weeks..
However, at 4200 miles it had an
engine change rather than an oil
change ... intermittant loss of power
and problems with the transmission
sliping, and multiple other problems
with 2nd engine... did the obligatory
oil change at 7200 (3400)miles... But
then at 13000 miles the vehicle needed
another engine.

Dealer said "not their problem", call
Chrysler... Chrysler refused to deal
with the issue saying "Call the Dealer"


Best Features

Looked really nice and had a really nice 6 CD Changer installed... just didn't run... music was great though!


Worst Features

Chrysler needs to improve reliability of its major components (engine)and they also need a major rehaul of their "Customer Satisfaction Service" because it is non-existant at this point.
