2005 Dodge Durango SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Great vehicle for road trips with family, fun around town, or as an everyday driver. I use it for work and average around 1k miles a week. The selling points on the Durango are ride quality and interior features. It has a super smooth ride with great handling for a vehicle it's size. It also has several nice bells and whistles that Dodge puts into it's higher end vehicles (ipod connection, bluetooth, sat radio, etc.). The downsides are also there though. Poor gas mileage, minimal second row leg room, and a little more road noise than some prefer. It also has great cargo room and a great sound system.


Best Features

Smooth ride, ipod connectivity, ride heigth.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, second & third row leg room.

2005 Dodge Durango SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have toed the line on fuel economy, the ecology, and so forth. After a bout with cancer and three minor strokes I decided to once in my automotive life to live; so I bought Godzilla. I went from a 1995 Subaru Outback with a 2.2L H4 engine that got 30 miles to the gallon to Godzilla which averages half that in town and I have gotten 24.5 mpg on the highway; with the A/C on. Yes, it is a brute, it is not lady friendly, but it rides smooth, has pick up, a tight turning radius and goodies galore. I love this truck and...yes it has a HEMI!!!!


Best Features

AM/FM/CD/DVD/NAV system, auto climate control, lots of space, CUP HOLDERS (something the subaru lacked), leather seats, nice view of unhappy people in econo boxes.


Worst Features

Replace the plastic on the seats and send updated Nav DVD's free of charge.

Review

With the 5.7 HEMI you will have plenty of power.We get an average of 16-18 MPG city and 19-22mpg highway (cruising). This is one of the safest cars feeling cars I've driven in a long time.Still feel that this was a very smart purchase.


Best Features

We just love the indash navigation system.


Worst Features

Seat molding needs inprovement.

Review

This SUV is nice but the seat interior is terrible it cracks all up around the seat and seat belt. The bumper seem to be loose and and if in an accident it seem like It'll crack right up!?! There needs to be a recall on the seats. I also have the ABS light on which has been explained to me as a recall?


Best Features

The space is pretty good I wish I had the 3rd row seat though.


Worst Features

The seats and the bumper

Review

This vehicle is as advertised on the sticker, fuel mileage has been better than expected. I have two complaints after almost 30,000 miles. It needs at least two more inches of driver seat hip room and back up sensors.The Hemi is great, very responsive.
