2004 Dodge Durango SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I am a former Marine that purchased my durango brand new on September 1st 2004, with only 18 miles. It has been a truly excellent ride for nearly 10 years. I have put over 227800 miles on this truck, the only thing The first major repair is when I replaced the EGR valve which was three years ago. Didn't do schedule maintenance on time, may have went an additional 2000 miles before changing the oil, transmission fluid. etc. Now after 10 years I was told that my transmission needed to be replaced, I have read all the complaints others have experienced But I only will purchase American cars except Fords. I won't be buying a Dodge Durango SUV do to the change in body style it's too femin


Favorite Features

It feels like a sports car underneath the heavy exterior with the 5.7 Hemi V8 engine It has the get up and GO excellent sound system still after 10 years


Suggested Improvements

Gas Mileage 25 city / 28 highway Dual Roof Third row seat 50 / 50 Navigation front and rear camera better six cd system multi USB ports 120 V AC power outlet to charge laptop, cell phones etc

2004 Dodge Durango SUV SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased mine brand new in 2004 and currently has 128,000 miles. This has been the most reliable and best vehicle I've ever owned - did the regular maintenance...new tires...brakes, battery etc. but that's IT.


Favorite Features

Dependability, comfortable ride, engine performance and just the way it looks.


Suggested Improvements

At this point no - the new Durango's are certainly a disappointment though since they've shrunk them down.

Review

We have a 2004 durango slt 5.7L with a hole in the block. This car was extremly well maintained. The car eats roters, has had never ending electrical problems and spun a main bearing at 160000 mils. It has never missed an oil change, the oil comes out as clean as it was put in. Crysler will not recall this problem or rebait the replacement. After serching for a replacement I have found that this seems to be a very very common problem with the 5.7, 4.7, and the 6.0.. Do not Buy A Dodge Durango or any Mopar Hemi with out asking or resurching this motor. I have lost 8,000.00 dollers on this vehical. I will never buy a Mopar again!


Favorite Features

I do love the size and power of this car.


Suggested Improvements

Recal the 04-06 Hemi motors. rebait the replacement motor or pay to have them all Rebuilt! I will never buy a Mopar again!

Review

2004 Dodge Durango Limited 5.7 Hemi with under 80,000 miles. I am the original owner. Car has been well maintained. Oil changes every 3000 miles. Never had any overheating problems. This vehicle has served me well for the past 9 years until about a month ago. Without warning, while going down the freeway, it made a terrible noise. I knew it was something major. The oil light came on. There was a bunch of smoke. I shut the engine off and pulled off the freeway. I could see oil dripping from the engine. After having to towed, i learned there was a hole in the engine block from a thrown rod. After doing some research on the web, i found 100s if not 1000s of cases just like mine.

Review

I owned my 2004 dodge durango SLT 5.7 Hemi for almost 9 years. I've owned over ten cars in my life and never had a better car than my durango. Only had to replace the battery, and the brakes but that's it. I just hit 100 thousand today and still drives like when I bought it with 8 miles. This car could go for another 100 thousand without a problem!! My sister just got a 2009 ford explorer and that has had more problems than my Durango.
