2002 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The dodge durango is an excellent built
suv, the comfort and options are great
and the feel for the road is on time
with stff but firm handling. the fuel
consumption is sorrowful in this day
and time, approximately 16 mpg city and
highway combined. The additional seating
is a plus with options as a luggage
compartment. Highway long trips are
enjoyable to take with the road handling
ability of sure footed big enought but
small enought to be enjoyable enought. I
would buy this vehicle again.


Best Features

seating, airconditioning, factory sound system, handling


Worst Features

better fuel economy

2002 Dodge Durango SLT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Overall a good vehicle. Truck-based
SUV handles rough terrain better than
a car-based. Finally got needed face
lift in 04 but the truck got heavier
and has sacrificed power and some
convenience (cannot get cass player
anymore) Also, new seats are hard as
a rock.


Best Features

V8.


Worst Features

Ball joints are defective. I wish DC would just go ahead and admit it. @ sets of ball joints in 30k miles...

Review

This is my 2nd Durango. Was very happy
with my '99 D and decided to replace it
with the 2002. In all, I wish I had
researched my purchase more carefully.
When its running its pleanty strong on
the highway and reasonably roomy for
four or five. This D was in the shop 2X
for failed front brake lines, 2X in the
shop for major transmission rebuild, 1X
in shop for rack/pinion steering
replacement and AM/FM/CD changer
replacement. All was repaired under
warranty, without too much fuss from
the dealer. This D has 35.3K miles on
it now. I can't imagine keeping it,
since it is my wife's daily driver. Its
just not reliable enough.


Best Features

Heated seats. 3rd row seat. Excellent highway ride for a truck.


Worst Features

Reliability... its just not world class. Small town reliability maybe...

2002 Dodge Durango R/T 4WD 4dr SUV (5.9L 8cyl 4A)


Review

One cannot expect great gas mileage
from an SUV. Other than cost of gas I
have no complaints about this vehicle.


Best Features

Power, get up and go. A/C could use a little more umph.


Worst Features

More umph in the A/C. Other than that good to go!

Review

I have a 2002 SLT Plus with 4.7L. I
haven't had any major problems
mechanically, but the A/C doesn't even
begin to cool the car. If you run it
on high all the time (You have too)
then you develop a mildew smell. The
dealer actually said, "don't run it on
high then" They actually admit a
design flaw - but no fix. I'm selling
my $33,00 two year old durango now and
Edmunds says it's worth about $16K -
wonderful!


Best Features

Power


Worst Features

A/C - better mileage. I'm done with Crysler.
