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


Bought my SLT 4WD in Nov 03. I hated the way the 04's looked + got a steal on the 03 anyway. At about 5000 miles, all the AC leaked out. Took 2 trips in, and they ended up ripping out the entire dash to replace the leaking parts. They did provide me a free loaner car on trip #2. At about 7000 miles, the driver seat had a pin fall out and the back of the driver seat jammed reclined. Now at almost 12000 miles, recalls for wiper motor, and now the ball joint failure. Plus the heater motor has gone out (died in ice storm last week). Also, gas mileage sucks! EPA rating is bull. I average 12.5MPG with 80% of it highway. I doubt I would buy another one, especially the ugly new models.

Best Features

Space. 3 row seating is great, and easy to use. I also really think that they had a great visual design, until the 04's came out.

Worst Features

Make a more efficient engine. I need to have a tanker follow me around town. Also, 4 month wait for them to "get me in" for the ball joint recall is a bit too long.
