    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Plenty of room, easy to work on

    Cons: Gas mileage sucks

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 265,000 miles no issues..ever

    Cons: 13.2 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.

    Pros: This Durango DEFINITELY has the power to move.

    Cons: Fuel economy is horrible, but I knew that before I bought this.  It has a 318 Magnum V-8 in it.  What do you exp3ect.

    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

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: it is a very powerful car, great with toting camping gear

    Cons: TO HIGH ON GASOLINE

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Very roomy. Comfortable seats and air condition covers the entire vehicle.

    Cons: Magnum V8 engine sucks up the gas.
