Great Looks, Plenty Of Room, Comfortable Ride, Dependable. — Liked everything but the mileage on long trips, which I rarely took, which is why the mileage is only 96,000 miles after 12 years. The 3 seats is greats, heated seats up front, air , cruise control, auto windows, the 3rd row seat folds down for more storage. Just a great family vehicle or hauling vehicle for trips. The looks of the wheels and black exterior and roof top carrier is great too.

I Should Have Kept It. — Great versatile truck. Maintenance expenses only. No towing but had front hitch for snow plowing. Lots of room inside. 7 seater with tons of room with seats down. Good stereo and other power options. Superb ride quality with all season tires.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Love This Truck — this has been a good truck. lots of long drives in pure comfort. gas mileage isn't that bad considering the weight and power of this vehicle. Ive had to pay for a few major repairs (front hubs and ABS sensors and a rebuilt rack and pinion) but it is an older vehicle now with 138,000 mile on it so its not really unexpected. its pleasantly quiet inside while driving (hardly any road noise and no squeaky plastic like Chevy's worthless interiors). Kudos to dodge for making a solid truck!

2002 Dodge Durango — Once of the best looking SUV's I've owned. Unfortunately it was by FAR the most unreliable car I've ever owned. So much so that I sold it after 8 months and $4,000 worth of electrical repairs, water pumps, O-2 sensors, and so on. If it weren't for the extremely poor reliability I would love this rig.

Durango Slt 2002 — I think the car is great. The quality is really great. A strong car that performs well in many places such as the road, snow even the desert. The cost of maintenance is very reasonably priced. The drive quality is great as the shocks are soft.

A True Sports Suv. — An SUV that handles like a performance car. Large 5.9l Magnum V8 provides plenty of power for whatever you need. R/T package includes full-time AWD as well as, 4 wheel hi and low. First real Muscle SUV, very fun to drive on track or off-road.

Im Glad I Bought It — Fastest vehicle I have ever owned. AWD is amazing in the deep Ohio snow. Plenty of HP. for towing. Very hard to get the AWD Durango stuck on the snow. Lots of torque... Accidentally popped a few wheelies back in 2005 when I first got it. U have to respect all of that motor.
