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.

    • You eat bass and you're going to rip on some grapefruit Shandy? Your self-righteousness knows no bounds.
    • let us know when there weren't racial tensions.
    • I was thinking the same thing, but when I don't see it listed with the features I don't want to go off my own assumption. I sent Tebben a couple emails 2 days ago and hadn't heard anything yet.  I'll give Berkon a try and see what they say.
    • There is a side bi-fold ramp that is similar to the one in the back. He had an aluminum "blank" made to fit in its place so that he could use it as a regular trailer if needed. He still has the ramp and it bolts in when you need it by removing the blank. Not the same brand, but would look similar to this with the side ramp installed...
       
    • Strange, there were racial tensions in 1992, i wonder if there's a coinsidence... Clinton model of divide and conquer.
    • Just remember, for every 1 wackjob chiro there's probably 10 surgeons that don't give a rip about you unless they're able to get surgery approved.  Meaning their advise and prescribed narcotics/injections will eventually lead you to a pay day.  We can't be so naive now folks, but let's all dive into this one case and attempt to destroy the practice while we turn a shoulder to the other, that happens WAY more often.    That number of 10-1 is pretty light by the way.
    • Just for reference, Clinton was elected in 1992 and took office in January 1993. 
    • Sorry I forgot to add, I didn't build on this one, already came built so the brakes were on already. (I built my last one however) But I did look at the Berkon frames before I bought because I was going to build again myself and pretty sure that they had the brakes already. (At least the ones I looked at in their catalog) But I feel like any brand at that size should come with the brakes already, since a 20' house is going to go over the 3k limit.
    • Thanks for the reply trav102, the Berkon frame looks pretty similar to the Tebben and it looks like they do galvanized trailers pretty regularly. Did yours come with trailer brakes?  Or is that something I'd have to add on myself if I go over 3000#?
    • Do the sides in the front come off For your ramps your do they drop down and you use your own?
