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.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    • We're not setting any records but managing to decoy a few. Struggling with a new gun that I'm too stubborn to set aside. Just happy to be out at all with what I've been through. 
    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.  
    • You are a confused individual , you might not have jumped on the Apple dumpling gang bandwagon at first but it didnt take you long to sit side by side.And where do you get off saying I'm whining as you spell it,  go back and read the thread again. Snowflake huh? Dave you need to get otta silly town...oh and BTW after limit hit up our group they all left!!
    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
