2004 Dodge Durango SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Though not perfect in any single category, this is a very good SUV. I have not had one single mechanical issue with this vehicle. I do all service work myself according to the book, which I am hoping will save money in the long haul. Performance with the 4.7L V8 is good, I occasionally tow a utility trailer with various loads and it still performs admirably. Long grades at 70 MPH fully loaded are no problem. Braking is excellent for a large SUV; both in feel and in braking distance. The bumpers fore and aft are thin plastic, not adequate. They are painted on the SLT and higher trim levels, which leads to very visible road rash from debris.

Best Features

This is a well built vehicle. Look underneath the truck...this isn't a tinfoil unibody frame! Maintenance is very easy and straightforward. The 4.7L is actually rated for a 150k service life, which is high for a production gasoline V8.

Worst Features

HID headlamps. Chrome or steel bumpers
