2003 Dodge Durango SUV SXT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

We are a minivan family and just
purchased our first '03 SUV. Cannot
wait to trade the minivan in for a
second Durango. My husband and I fight
over who will drive the truck and who
will drive the minivan. Its roomy,
sporty and drives and handles great!!
The kids love the rear air and they
actually sit without complaints during
trips. Who can ask for better than that?


Best Features

I love everything about my 03 Durango. It is the best car that I have owned and driven so far.


Worst Features

Cup holders in the 2nd row when middle seat (equipped with holders) is in use, towing hitch should be standard, molding to eliminate dings from other car doors

2003 Dodge Durango SUV SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

BEWARE POTENTIAL DURANGO BUYERS!!!!

We purchased our '03 Dodge Durango SLT
4X4 off the lot in February. In
Marh '03 we started having "issues"
with it. The rear axle seal was
leaking and finally after three repair
attempts it was fixed. The complete
rear axle was replace!! I thought I
just bought a new Durango!! This was
followed by the check engine light
coming on for various other reasons
that the service manager still can
explain.


Best Features

To boot, 22,000 miles later it needs new brakes. I have had no success with any Dodge dealership service department being straight with me. There's always someething they can not explain that happens. The inspection for this year (2004) was another issue. It failed for safety.


Worst Features

Imagine something being wrong with my 2003 Durango once again. Then took it to a Dodge dealer. They claim nothing is wrong. Calls are not returned. Filing for Lemon Law relief goes nowhere. I am totally turned off on any Daimler Chrysler Product from now on. Beware buyers!!!

2003 Dodge Durango SUV SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Was concerned about buying a Dodge had
heard there were quality issues.
However found a great dealer, Oursiman
Dodge in Alexandra, VA. Have now bought
my second Durango, first one was a
2000. Have not had one problem with
either one. My only complaint is the
head room with the rear air. But I see
they fixed it in 2004, guess I'll have
to buy a new one.


Best Features

Like the 3 row seating, 4WD, the fact that it not to big. Like the big engines, this sucker flies! Plus handles well, hugh head room on 2nd and 3rd row seating. Great Price!!!!


Worst Features

Get better gas milage, only getting 13.5 mpg with the 4.7. Got 12 mpg on my 2000 with the 5.9L

We all know the stories of gas
mileage, but we knew that before we
bought the Durango. Great vehicle,
with plenty of power and fun to drive.
Prefer it to the new 2004 by a mile!

Truck like toughness, car like ride.


Worst Features

Improve flow noise dampening, quiet the A/C fan noise also.

2003 Dodge Durango SUV SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my Durango in late 2003 used,
with only 7000 miles from CarMax. Very
reliable, great power with a 5.7 Liter
V-8 engine. Good fuel economy for a V-
8 (about 15 mpg). Great pickup and
third row seat that folds into floor
is a great feature. I like its style
better than the new 2004. Interior
design is also wonderful.


Best Features

Powerful V-8 3rd row seat that folds down Size.. between mid- size and full- size


Worst Features

Offer a HEMI Offer a retracting roof like the Yukon.
