2004 Dodge Durango Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
We test drove every vehicle in this size group and larger. We kept coming back to the Durango because we loved the feel of the ride, power of the Hemi, and comfort of the interior. In our opinion, this vehicle was far superior to Ford and Chevy. Affordability was not an issue, even though the pricing on the Durango was incredible! We now have 60,000 miles on the vehicle with virtually no problems other than "brake" issues. They have been replaced twice already.
Smooth, powerful Hemi. Great ride and suspension.
Build quality could improve. Doors are a little "tinny" when closing. Front seating could be a little more "cushy" to compete with Chevy.
