Spacious but Unstable
By Rocks on
Vehicle2002 Dodge Durango SLT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewThe vehicle was handsome and got
adequate fuel mileage. The driver's
space was exceptionally well
proportioned for taller drivers, but
the bucket seat was crowded for wide
shoulders. The vehicle handled poorly
in marginal conditions (ice) and
rolled over in a situation in which it
should not have - a flat grass median
at 45 mph. To Dodge's credit, although
the airbag did not deploy and the
vehicle was totalled, the driver's
space was not impinged and neither a
canine passenger secured in the
cargo area suffered no injury.
Best FeaturesThe driver's space - it had plenty of room under the steering wheel for long lens, without the steering wheel being too far from the seat.
Worst FeaturesStability control or a lower, wider wheel-base to reduce the risk of rollover. Also, the bucket seats are too small.
