"Bought our 2001 durango in 2003 with 36k miles and it has never let us down. I've done brakes, tires, a couple bulbs, oil changes and spark plugs for maintenance. Mileage is better than my 2003 Dakota with same engine, still not fantastic...average around 17mpg. but what a car! does everything we ask of it with a smile. Just a fantastic vehicle all around...even with 90,000 miles. Lost one performance star for gas mileage."
"I got a 2003 Dodge Durango for my first vehicle, and i love it. although i have not owned it for very long, but i can tell it will be very good. My only gripe for this vehicle is that (i dont know if its because i have the smaller engine) if i try driving right after i start it up, it gets into the very high RPMs and i barely press the pedal. it also gets VERY loud at this same time. when i touch it it makes a loud vroooooo and im only goins 20. it probably takes 2 minutes for it to stop doing this. besides that i love it."
"Just in the last three years I have been nickled and dimed on this thing. Gas mileage is awful at 16 in highway and 9 in town. Ouch! Overall it is a good truck feel of a SUV just starting to feel/see it wears."
