05 Dodge Durango

6 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

My wife and I test drove an 05 Durango this past week and like how it drives and roominess of the interior. Anyone on here have an 05 Durango that has pro's/con's of it or the good vs the not so good...I am not trying to get any debate going just some truthful facts of the 05 Durango, I know about the 4 recalls issued for this year of Durango, thanks for the feedback

Besides some possible front end issues, a trans once and awhile and maybe a rear diff noise, they where good trucks to own... Most Durango owners I know really like their trucks.

Really what can you say? Some of them had concerns and others went many miles and had nothing. I would suggest taking it to an independent third party for a safety inspection and make sure all the obvious is in good condition.

Good luck!

I have one with the 5.7 Hemi that my wife drives.....pretty much 16 in town (not bad) 16 on the highway (not good) doesn't seem to matter what speed or RPM your going to get 16 MPG.

It has been good to us so far....about 65K miles.

thanks for all the replies, this one is the smaller V8, not the hemi, seems like a good solid truck, so well see if I can work a deal on it.

05 should have the 7/70 powertrain warranty. I believe that was the last year for that.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
