I love my dodge Durango!!

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

All leather interior. Nice cup holder placement. The rim by the gas tank gets rusty very fast and I don't like that. I love the 3rd row seating and that you can fold them all down so easily for more space. The driver's seat is able to go almost down to the floor for when my husband is driving, than when I drive I can put the seat up quite a few inches and not just forward and it makes a huge difference.

Great vehicle that has lasted a long time!

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

I have driven my Durango for 11 years now. For the most part it has been an excellent vehicle. We have had 2 recurring problems with the car, but they haven't been too expensive to fix. One is that we've had to replace the ignition twice. And it has gotten exhaust leaks a few times. Overall, I've been pleased with the Durango and will drive it until it can't be driven anymore.

I have 3rd row seating which is great when I have my kids and their friends

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

My Durango has 250,000 miles on it and still runs. It has some cosmetic problems but that's to be expected with the amount of use it gets. I haul everything from kids to feed and hay for our animals. The only major problem with it was I had to replace the water pump, but again my truck is 1r years old. I love it and would definitely recommend this vehicle for a busy family!

Love my all wheel drive Durango

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

I absolutely love my dodge Durango. It's all wheel drive so it does well in inclement weather like snow and really heavy rain. When all wheel drive is not enough I have four lock and four low. I have never been stuck because my engine is a 5.7 liter hemi with a lot of power. I love the power windows and seats but I'm not a huge fan of the leather interior

- Nichole P

spacious, roomie, AWD dodge Durango

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

I love my vehicle, it has the room in the back for all the kids to put their gear for sports as well as grocery shopping, haven't had any major mechanical issues beside airbag recall, it goes from AWD to 4 wheel drive which I like. The negative is it doesn't have a 3rd row seating so that is a negative but I think the Durango is a very good vehicle.

Dodge Durango. My very own darth.

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

My vehicle is an 8 seater SUV. I love the size & color of my vehicle. It sits high & I can see everything. It has leather seats, which are extremely comfortable & attractive. It drives very well. The sound system is good along w/the 6 CD changer. It is helpful that the stereo has satellite capabilities if I decided to subscribe to that featured.

Dodge Durango has luxurious ride.

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

Performance in the 2005 Dodge Durango is excellent aside from the terrible gas mileage. However, the ride in the Durango is very nice; very smooth and handles very well. The instrument cluster in the dash had a recall but we were not able to make the deadline to get it replaced therefore, the dome lights do not work. Altogether, a great vehicle.

- Michael T

Sleeper in quality and performance for an 8 seat SUV.

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

Great dependability, only drawback is gas mileage, large and spacious. Handles like a smaller SUV. Great power. Very comfortable. Good seats. Problems at the side of electric seat base is plastic and cracks. Surprisingly fast. The fit and finish of the body is above average and far exceeds what I thought dodge produced,impressive.

Dodge Durango, endures the test of time

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

Great car! I've had it for 9 years now and have had very little problems. Overall, general maintenance issues. The only major issue I've had was redoing the transmission. Love the overall look and how it sits higher. Very reliable and runs great. If I was to get a new vehicle, I would definitely want to keep this one as a backup.

- Nicole L

I love the fact that there are 7 seats and you can lay all the back seats down.

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

I have always loved my car! It was just what I wanted. It is a pretty red and it has been a great vehicle. It is very comfortable and has not had any major problems. It rides smooth and handles great. I would recommend a Dodge Durango to anybody. I would love to have a new one for my next vehicle!

The ins and outs of the Dodge Durango

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

I have over 300,000 miles on my Dodge Durango. The only real problem with it is that somebody cut the lines for the heater core so it overheats very easily. Otherwise it ranks up there with one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. It runs well I just have to rig it for heat in the wintertime.

- John C

Back seats folds down for extra room..Multiple charging ports and cup holders.

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

Great vehicle!Good in gas..Filled it up here in Paris Illinois drove to St.Louis. On one tank. Then fill up on way home. Oil maintenance is very awesome... It keeps oil great... This being Durango #2 they are bad having oil light staying on and anti- brake also... Beyond that nothing negative.

- Travis M

The u turn ratio is amazing

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

We really love our Durango because of the space and size. The vehicle drives great. We also have a TV console up in the roof which has been great with the kids. The Durango has never had any issues as well. We are a family of 6 and now with our new granddaughter we all still fit comfortably

- Kimberly B

My big loving dodge Durango.

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

My vehicle is roomy it is still running after 14 years with little maintenance issues. I can haul and pack a lot of items in it and travelling with a large family like mines is a breeze. My vehicle is large enough to not be intimidated by big trucks on the road and safety is always first.

Reliability of the Dodge Durango

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

The only big problem I've had is that the O2 sensors went out. Only other issues were due to rust that was from living in the Midwest. The vehicle does not have Bluetooth or an auxiliary port. So far, the vehicle has been very reliable and is still running at over 200,000 mile.

- Damien M

It's good no problems and it's amazing

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

- Keenan G

2005 Dodge Durango SLT

- Melvin S
