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

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great carfor the money, it holds its value even at high mileage

Cons: hate all electronic cars.

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.

Its Not The Power,,, Its The Lead Foot Behind The Power. — Thought id go for it and get me an suv. for themost part, ive always been into trucks as opposed to cars, and when i saw this durango i knew i had to look no further. gotta love the power...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: V-8 Magnum, plenty of power to go around.

Cons: wish it had asun roof, but hey...

The 2014-Current Dodge Durango is a complete underdog that is often overlooked due to the previous Durango’s issues. This design feel and drives more like a European car and that is because the chasis... Read More
