A buddy told me about his friend selling a 2003 top of the line Durango. He told me about all the bells and whistles and the owner is meticulous about his car. Really had me going when he told me the price, it was literally a steal. Now I find the drawback, it has 118,000 miles on it. I am still considering buying it. If it was serviced regularly, could this still be a good buy with a lot of life left in it? Thanks for any advice.

I am new to the dodge forums, all you guys have great info about durangos. I have a mechanic at a chrysler dealership and he has a 2003 D with the 5.2l V8 and also said that the 4.7 is not much faster than the 5.2 but they are all bullet proof motors and will last along time if you put some TLC into her. MeanGreen thanks for the info you have been a great help.Deereng,I have the sameD like yours with the 4.7l V82000SLT and same colour how is your running?, mine has 167000km's.
Since its been getting really cold out, I've been having a noisy lifter on start ups. Its noisy for maybe 2 mins, but i am concerned about it. Other than that engine runs great and pulls like a mother, even with the 3.55 rear end
Tranny works great, have yet to have a problem with it, I drive hard and tow a heavy camper trailer in the summer.
I would suggest that if the vehicle has a good record of maintenance/repairs and was driven predominately for highway driving, then the vehicle would be a charm. My 2003 Durango has 205,000 miles and is going strong; at 190,000 miles, mostly highway driving, my mechanic told me that I have at least another 100,000 miles to go. Certainly, the maintenance on a high mileage vehicle is a bit more extensive, however, I have not really spent much keeping my baby going! Good Luck!
