2003 Dodge Durango SLT Plus Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
THIS HAS BEEN A REAL TREAT. WE LOVE
THIS VEHICLE! IT RIDES AS GOOD AS OUR
LEXUS. WE GOT RID OF OUR RODEO (good
suv),I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE QUALITY
OF THIS SUV. I HAVE BEEN IN THE CAR
BUSINESS FOR 25 YEARS AND RECENTLY
RETIRED BECAUSE OF HEALTH REASONS. I
FIND IT VERY EASY FOR ME TO GET IN AND
OUT OF. AND PLENTY OF STORAGE FOR MY
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
Dealer said "not their problem", call
Chrysler... Chrysler refused to deal
with the issue saying "Call the Dealer"
Looked really nice and had a really
nice 6 CD Changer installed... just
didn't run... music was great though!
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
2003 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I have owned this vehicle for less than
a week, but so far I absolutely love
it. It is a very smooth ride, and
living in pothole ridden NYC that is
very important. It handles the road
My favorite feature is in the radio.
While listening to regular fm stations
the display, displays the name of the
station and the title of the current
song and the artist. COOL! Even my
1996 Mercedes Benz didnt do that.
The newly designed 2004 body style is
too bulky and almost up ther with the
larger Expedition and Suburban type
SUV's. For that reason I went with a
2003 instead of the all new 2004.
I traded in my 2000 Durango due to high
mileage, which to me rode like a
Cadillac, and purchased the 2003 model.
After 3 months we are looking at
trading this one in. This one rides
like a truck, the interior seems so
much smaller and compact. You are now
butting elbows with your passenger. I
always said I would always drive a
Durango, but now I think we will be
looking at other SUV's.
My favorite feature about the Durango
is the exterior body. I still love it.
I realize that the 2004 Durangos are
now larger inside, however the exterior
is no longer appealing to me. The
front end reminds me of a truck. I
guess its time to move on. Sorry
