Review

THIS HAS BEEN A REAL TREAT. WE LOVE
THIS VEHICLE! IT RIDES AS GOOD AS OUR
LEXUS. WE GOT RID OF OUR RODEO (good
suv),I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE QUALITY
OF THIS SUV. I HAVE BEEN IN THE CAR
BUSINESS FOR 25 YEARS AND RECENTLY
RETIRED BECAUSE OF HEALTH REASONS. I
FIND IT VERY EASY FOR ME TO GET IN AND
OUT OF. AND PLENTY OF STORAGE FOR MY
WHEELCHAIR.

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


Review

Purchased on May 6, 2003...
I did enjoy it for the 1st 5 weeks..
However, at 4200 miles it had an
engine change rather than an oil
change ... intermittant loss of power
and problems with the transmission
sliping, and multiple other problems
with 2nd engine... did the obligatory
oil change at 7200 (3400)miles... But
then at 13000 miles the vehicle needed
another engine.

Dealer said "not their problem", call
Chrysler... Chrysler refused to deal
with the issue saying "Call the Dealer"


Best Features

Looked really nice and had a really nice 6 CD Changer installed... just didn't run... music was great though!


Worst Features

Chrysler needs to improve reliability of its major components (engine)and they also need a major rehaul of their "Customer Satisfaction Service" because it is non-existant at this point.

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


Review

I have owned this vehicle for less than
a week, but so far I absolutely love
it. It is a very smooth ride, and
living in pothole ridden NYC that is
very important. It handles the road
very well.


Best Features

My favorite feature is in the radio. While listening to regular fm stations the display, displays the name of the station and the title of the current song and the artist. COOL! Even my 1996 Mercedes Benz didnt do that.


Worst Features

The newly designed 2004 body style is too bulky and almost up ther with the larger Expedition and Suburban type SUV's. For that reason I went with a 2003 instead of the all new 2004.

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


Review

I traded in my 2000 Durango due to high
mileage, which to me rode like a
Cadillac, and purchased the 2003 model.
After 3 months we are looking at
trading this one in. This one rides
like a truck, the interior seems so
much smaller and compact. You are now
butting elbows with your passenger. I
always said I would always drive a
Durango, but now I think we will be
looking at other SUV's.


Best Features

My favorite feature about the Durango is the exterior body. I still love it.


Worst Features

I realize that the 2004 Durangos are now larger inside, however the exterior is no longer appealing to me. The front end reminds me of a truck. I guess its time to move on. Sorry Dodge!!!

Review

Everytime I see another Durango on the
street I realize how happy I am with my
purchase. The look is great and the
ride is perfect. Very comfortable, fits
like a glove and has plenty of room.


Best Features

Heated seats, rear air/heat control. Fold down third row seating. Auto rearview mirror dimmer for the cars behind you at night.


Worst Features

I somethimes wish the back door windows didn't come down all the way. I have a child so and he hasn't found that bottom yet since he'sin a car seat but when he does that may be trouble.
