Review of the 2005 Dodge Durango

  • With its tough-truck styling, available Hemi V8 and roomy interior, the Durango offers an appealing combination of power, comfort and utility. If you don't mind its big thirst at the pump, it's a great value.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong V8 engines, agile handling, excellent ride quality, capable off-road, lots of cargo capacity, simple controls.

  • Cons

    Lousy mileage, sloppy fit and finish, needs more second-row legroom and storage, no stability control or parking sensors.

  • What's New for 2005

210,000 miles in 5 years

Vehicle: 2005 Dodge Durango ST Rwd 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)

I bought an '05 Dodge Durango ST with 45k on it in June 07 for ~$19k. In that time I've put on over 165,000 miles. I have had to replace all 4 tires twice, battery, headlights, alternator, gas tank (factory recall covered by Dodge), spark plugs, & air compressor. What finally did me in was losing the transmission about 2 weeks ago. Fixing it would run about $1500 and even then its no guarantee how much more the car has in it. The gas mileage is miserable but this car held on through the rough & tumble college years where it was routinely loaded down with people & stuff for long haul drives (1k+ miles). Nothing fancy but sturdy. I am sad to see it go and not sure what I'll replace it with.

Vehicle: 2005 Dodge Durango ST Rwd 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)

Its a 2005 with 55k miles on it and its going back to the dealership or the 11th time! Now I have collant in the oil so I'm sure its going to be a major deal. Its already had cooling problems, stearing problems, stalling issues, and on and on. There is a reason the trade in value is 8500 for a 4 year old car with 55K. Please go to the link below before you buy a dodge or jeep. I realy hate that this is what dodge and jeep have become, I was a die hard jeep guy for the last 20 years but not any more.




Fun to drive! i love

When I first test drove my car it was a match made in heaven. I loved it. It was smooth to drive. The steering is easy on my wrist. The whole big body was a plus. Also the DVD player
