New Durango blues
By amber on
Vehicle2003 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewBought our new Dodge last month. It is a SLT 4x4 model (2003). So far the best gas mileage I have recieved is approximately 13 miles per gallon. Pulling our 23 ft boot only 9.5 mpg. Aweful gas mileage. Our air does not run as cool as it should. We were trying to decide between an Envoy and the Durango and decided on the Durango because of the incentives. Also three days after buying the durango, the gas petal came off in the middle of a highway and we had to pull over to replace it. I now wish I had gone with the Envoy for comfort reasons and interior styling. The only con for the Envoy is that it felt like driving an all wheel drive van.
Best FeaturesHandles well, priced better than Envoy with more standard options such as leather, third row seat, cd,power mirror and seat, etc...Great looks. Very smooth ride. Great pick-up.
Worst FeaturesPassenger seat only reclines slightly, and is uncomfortable. Air conditioner is loud and doesn't work well. Gas mileage is horrible (worse than our Z- 71 4x4 truck). Third row seat barely fits a 4 year old. Does not include an ashtray as standard.
