Our Standby 4x4 — We like the room, we like that it was cheap to buy one used, we love the spacious interior, we like the rear a/c controls, I like that I can easily change the spark plugs rather than pay $170 for a job that takes less than an hour for a novice. Changing brakes is a breeze as well.

The Durango Is An All Around Sport Suv/cargo And A Dream To Drive — the dodge durango sle is in a class by its self, it roomy for the tall people in your family, great on gas mileage and easy on the wallet. This 2003 Dosge durange has not bad or blind spots, it is an all the round vehicle. Great family vehicle.

Best Thing I Have Ever Owned. — Tough, rugged and long lasting. For a great price you can have a true 4X4 off road vehicle that drive like a Lincoln on the road. Mine never broke or left me stranded. I bought it new and will never sell it.

One Of The Best Suv's I Have Ever Owned. — I just got this 2003 Durango about 2 weeks ago. I wanted an SUV due to winter is upon us and my Grand Maruqis just wasn't cuttin it. I currently have only had 1 issue with this Durango and that is that it keeps stalling out on me at just about every stop sign or light. I had done alot if internet research and I hope I found out the solution. I will know in the next couple days.

Beautiful 03' Durango — Our family car is great but the car runs on to much gas and if you want a gas guzzler here is your car new parts/getting the car fixed is very expensive but other than that great car 4wd makes it easier to get out of ditches/potholes

Big Tough Truck — I bought this Durango while trading in my 2006 Passat. We're in Florida so no real problem buying an older truck down here as long as it's taken care of well. 164k on the odometer when purchased on June 30, 2012. Will update on this vehicle as I drive and own it more.

4WD and lots of seat for many kids if you have them and it is not a minivan LMAO!

Cons

its a sled and crappy gas mileage 12.5 MPG and feels like a "Soccer Mom's" car or the compromise for dad who wants a truck not a mini van

The Soccer Mom Car..... — This car was comfortable but I hated it from day 1! it got crappy gas mileage and was expensive to maintain and insure....................................cant think of anything good to say here it! I couldn't see out the windows and I HATED this car! Only good things...it was a DODGE and I could put furniture and lots of stuff in it
