2003 Dodge Durango SXT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I purchased this vehicle based on its
appearance and previous reviews about
towing capacity and frame design. It
has nice, aggressive lines. It handles
well whether on or off road. Previous
vehicle was Ford Explorer and wanted
something with a larger engine for
towing. Plenty of space for cargo
inside as well.
Confident handling and great interior
room in front and back seats. I really
like the in-floor storage areas in the
back. Has good power but struggles
when towing,even light loads.
There has got to be a way to increase
fuel economy in a small 8.--Biggest
complaint. How does 5.2 get better
mpg? As rugged as the Durango looks, it
could use better ground clearance. It
needs to sit higher. When cruise
control is engaged the Durangos seems
to strain and downshift unnecessarily.
