If like me, you own/owned the well-
known Durango body style,the new ones
take some getting used to.
Once you get over the new body style,
you'll be happy with the
modifications...notwithstanding the MPG.
I found the new model is better
overall: good interior design, easy
handling, great ride (you float) and
fantastic sound system! I'm only 5'3"
and love being able to look down at
people on the road! Like the longer
Watch your speed, if it feels like 40,
you're probably doing 60.
Although I was initially reluctant, I'm
happy I stayed with the Durango. Thanks
Anthony Ester at Covington Pike Dodge,
you're an asset!
Before you rule the Durango out, take
the test drive
It looks more polished and I love way
it handles. It's like driving a luxury
car, it's so SMOOTH. While the
horsepower seems a little weaker going
uphill, this Durango can handle sharp
turns, my 2002 couldn't. The stereo
system is fantastic! I got the basic
SLT (no HEMI) and am really happy with
My greatest disappointment was that
Chrysler stripped down to 2004 SXT
model to bare bones. I HAD to get the
SLT just keep the amenities I was used
to. Jeep Liberty rear lights no good
for Durangos, should've used Pacifica
lights. Hate the long mini-van like
dashboard! Give SLT no 3rd row option.
2004 Dodge Durango Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I have eth hemi, and it has plenty of
power. But after 5K miles, the dealer
still can't find annoying front end
vibration and pull. It pulls my boat
likeits not back there, very good ride
aside from front end vibration
Hemi power, strong towing ability,
On mine at least..find the front end
vibration. Change the overhead computer
to the more appealing Jeep version.
Improve gas milage in Hemi with the
variable operating cylinder technology
available in other DCM cars with the
2004 Dodge Durango Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
To pull the camper and better handle
the WI winters, I switched from Gr
Caravan to Durango. Great decision.
HEMI power unbelievable and the ride is
a dream. Seats are soooo comfortable!
Hwy mileage better than I expected -
averaged over 20 mpg on long trip (no
towing), but get appx 15 in town.
Comfortable and easy to maneuver - too
easy to speed! Split 3rd row allows
room for gear. Not as much storage
space as the minivan, but I'd trade it
all for the feel of the SUV. Haven't
gotten to winter yet, but am sure the
4WD, traction control, and heated seats
will be wonderful. Bring it on!
HEMI engine, 6 disc CD changer, heated
seats, power sunroof.
Could use more storage space,
compartments. Dual zone temp control
would be nice. Running boards and mud
guards should be standard. Front
cupholders could be bigger for mugs
This is the smoothest riding truck you
will ever drive. Feels like you are
floating. Excellent cargo space,
drivers seat is high up so you can see
everything. Love the new design (Which
I did not like at first, you grow to
love it quick). Strong V8 engine. Fuel
effeciency seems a little low. Its a
beast of a truck.
