2002 Dodge Durango SLT plus
I got my SLT Plus in 2004 at a Dodge Dealer in Jax, Fla! It was a 2002 model with 40,000 miles and was nicely taken care of! I still have it as of July 2022 and have 195,000 miles on it! I have been extremely happy with this vehicle and everything still works great and except for a few performance upgrades (K&N air filter system) custom wheels and such I have taken it on numerous road trips with no problems! I still get compliments on its appearance as most folks can’t believe it’s 20 years old and is not ragged out! I do my maintenance on or before times and don’t see why it will not continue to perform well! If you can find a good used and maintained Durango then buy it! If I ever decide to sale I don’t think people would be disappointed! You can’t say that a lot for most 20 year old SUV”s! I average about 20 mpg between city/highway! With the high cost of new SUV’s and gas prices I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of it any time soon! It’s a Great Vehicle!!👍🇺🇸😊
First Car. Plan to be Only.
I got my Durango "Sebastian" from its original owner, when it had 130k miles on it. Have traveled fully cross-country (CA to NC) twice since then. Got me thru an F-3 tornado on the return trip! Very reliable. Never had a breakdown. Doesn't leak oil. Easy to upkeep, work on and parts are relatively inexpensive. A simple treatment of Seafoam or Lucas "tuneup" gasoline treatment once every 3 months is amazing! Fuel economy isn't the greatest, but it has the strength and durability of a good farm truck. I typically get 18 mpg hwy (unladen) but 16 FULLY loaded! Very doable. I use it as a commuter, traveler, camper, worktruck, farm vehicle, semi-offroad adventure vehicle. Not the best size or weight for a prolonged adventure, but I believe it does better than most of its similar-sized competitors.
There is no end to my love for this vehicle
I got it 2 years ago as the second owner. I am going to drive it until I can’t anymore. It never lets me down. Ever. The uni body construction is a tougher than anything. I slid on ice last winter and ended up over the guard rail, flying through the air and landed in a field at the bottom of a hill. Only thing damaged was my running board on the passenger side. No body damage at all, and I put it in four wheel and drove it up out of there. I always have the power I need, it is beyond comfortable, and I will never get rid of it.
