Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: Looks fantastic, plenty of space, rides smoothly, drives comfortably in all weather

Cons: Gas mileage

Nice Suv For The Average Family. — This was the last year dodge made the durango on the dakota platform. the durango drives nice and handles better then i thot it would have. very nice truck especially with the Infiniti sound system. the engine is a very responsive V8 magnum putting out enough HP to lug around even my Dads skidsteer bobcat...not the small ones wer talkin the second biggest one on the market. the 4 wheel drive is nice no doubt and in the winter its a handy option to have. it seats a family nice with more room to spare in the rear of the truck.

Pros: excellent for ur average family day to day driving.

Cons: gas mileage is not the greatest but hey its an SUV...wat would u expect?

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.

Pros: It's great to drive and has been a dependable SUV.

Cons: Only averages a combination of 15 MPG.

I brought the 2003 durango in 2008. It was the best vechile I ever owned. Ran great. Very sporty, and great pick-up...4.7 engine. the truck would have lasted forever, but do to a bad time in my life, i let it go, and getting rid of it this week. Cut through the snow like hell. Lots of room, and just a very well running truck. It would have lasted me foever.......scale of 1-10.....10....

Power Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD worse.
"The durango is psyically a lighter truck. The engine in the 2003 Durango is an interference engine with 3 timing chains. It is just meant to have a little more power especially on pick-up."
Handling Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD better.
"Because It was a bigger, and heaiver truck, so you naturally get a smother ride. Especially before I had to take out rear air boots, in place of springs."
Looks/Style Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD worse.
"Well it is just a matter of taste. The Eddie Bauer looked more Luxusuries, and the Durango sxt was more sporty, especially if you add more sporty items....."
Front Seats Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD worse.
"The Eddie Bauer was A 2004. Same answer basically as the rear, however, the front seats were sharper, and better bucket seats.."
Back Seats Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD worse.
"Even though they both had 3 row seating, of course the Eddie Buear had more space, but I found the seats in the Durango to be better quality, and softer..."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD better.
"The Expedition was just a bigger truck in inside & outside capasity....Just basics..."
Family Car Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD better.
"Better family car if you take your kids, and their friends out alot. It was psysically a wider inside.. But both family good cars...."
Value Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD worse.
"Basically price wise. And if you donnt have many kids anymore , you dont need all the room. Had alot of trouble with the engine and rear air suspension only after 5 years of having it. The durango lasted me 7 good years, and I still would have it today if I didnt let it good at the end..."
Would Buy Ranked 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD worse.
"As explained in the answers above..I would definitely buy the Durango if I had to do it all over again...."
