Good Truck, Bad On Fuel, But Worth The Price! — Its a great truck for a great price. I love the room it has in it. It has lots of room for the kids and everyone and then more room for all your stufff in the back! This thing has the power to go everywhere, and the engine to pull it with!

Cons

Magnum V8 engine sucks up the gas.

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.

Pros

Big power in a mid-size SUV!!!

Cons

Poor gas mileage

85

A Good Buy Overall — This vehicle has given me very few problems. Dodge had an absolute winner with this model with a very reliable drivetrain and a rough and rugged appearance. It is very comfortable and fun to drive. The backseat could use a little more legroom but the cargo area is more than ample!!! If you were considering an older style durango, make sure and go with the smaller 4.7L V8, as it is very powerful for a small package.

I Love It. — Good truck. Decent gas mileage for an SUV. Lots of space. Easy to maintain, doesnt break down much. Easily accelerates and brakes. There are a few dings and dents, but runs well. It is a great vehicle to drive. Excellent.

Cons

The Durango — I have Away's wanted one, the preformance is exellent and If you want a nice looking, good performing, solid truck for work or for yourself, and you don't want to spend over 20K on a new car, then this truck's for you. I have one in silver which I got for 14k there are all kinds of extras and the comfort is awesome, the only down side to this is that it does not get good gas milage i am pulling around 13 mpg

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.

Great Driving Suv — This is a really nice SUV and is perfect for taking a few friends or family to the movies, park and is great for grocery shopping since it has good cargo space. It is a fun vehicle to drive and has a comfortable ride.
