What a Lemon
By Ian from Denver on


2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I've had this 2005 Durango SLT w/ HEMI since Sept 2005. So far it has been a HUGE disappointment. Things that went wrong with it: 1) The CD player stopped ejecting CDs within the 1st month. 2) The front passanger door was bent and the dealership had to adjust it. 3) There is a constant air leak from all windows. At speeds of 60+ mph it gets rather noisy inside. 4) The overdrive off (or as they call it tow/haul)works whenever it wants to. 5) Going down steep hills in 2nd gear the vehicle keeps accelerating and slowing down on its own - can't keep a constant speed. 6) Even w/ the HEMI it is very sluggish and underpowered. No pickup at all - my LIBERTY accelerates better.

Best Features

None so far! It turned out to be a lemon

Worst Features

I had big hopes for the much touted HEMI engine. What a huge disappointment! It doesn't perform to my expectation at all. Switching gears bewtween 1st and 2nd, 2nd and 3rd is horrible - as if something is pulling the whole vehicle backwords and the engine is struggling to switch gears.
