Pros

This SUV is in great condition. The interior is like new and except for a few minor scratches/dings the exterior is very good. Inside its very roomy with all  the options anyone could want and the V-8 Hemi is hugely powerful and surprisingly quiet on long trips. The DVD player is great for the kids and I love being able to hook up my iphone to the seriour stereo.

Cons

Like all big SUVs, the gas milage is an issue (15 - 17 mpg average) but that's expected in this type of vehicle.

Very Clean, Well Kept Large Suv With All The Amenities — Loved the look and feel of this SUV. Lots of power but nice comfort features within. My wife feels very safe being "above the traffice" as she says and never has to worry about getting on the highway. Plenty of room for the kids in back and the DVD player keeps them occupied. Heavy duty towing package pulled a large trailer or 24 ft boat and trailer, no problem. Also, when doing work around the house the folding seats gave huge cargo room for trips to Home Depot.

Pros

Spacious and comfortable interior, and a very agressive appearance.

Cons

Not strong enough engine, lack of gizmos, and weak build quality.

Over-rated, But Not Dissapointing... — Its a very good looking car, very aggresive and vulgar. Best looking in silver,black and white. Sadly though your wife wont find it very stylish and so it ownt fit her.It is a very very good off-roader. However, the 335HP 5.7 Hemi isn't exactly economical or friendly to the enviroment, it only does 12MPG or less, and it doesn't deliver enough power or torque to the Durango because it weighs a 1000 tons! It simply weighs too much fir its engine, but still the engine can get you anywhere you want but not so quickly. Its not as sporty as Dodge say, and thats why yhey should have built an SRT version to give it a sporty attitude and performance. Its was faster than most of its competitors in its day. The leather interior is very spacious and comfortable, it can easily take 9 people in comfort. Yes, I did say 9! But the frint console is a bit dull, and lacks the options and luxuries that you would find in a Mercedes or a Lexus, but its the sportiest, in an Aluminium trim. Its a very cheap car, but the money you saved on buying it would be spent on gas or fuel for it. Its DVD that is set in the back is an advantage as it entertans your kids in long-distance cruises, which the Durango is perfect at, because the engine almost becomes silent, and thet tires too. It is better than its Japanese rivals that are weaker, smaller and more expensive. Its build quality is very weak, it starts squeaking and screeching after only 2 years of regular usage. One last problem with the Durango, is that it doesnt look as civilized or as prestigous as a Range Rover or a Lexus, and so it isn't the car to buy if you work in an office or in any high-class firm!

Very Good All Around Vehicle — Wish that they would of stayed with this style, I would of considered a new one if it was the same as this one. Vehicle could handle anything I would pull and handled excellent in the snow. When my other 4x4 couldn't get through the snow this one would with ease. Dodge screwed up when they changed this one.

The trip to the gas station..

Hemi Powered With Great Gas Mileage — I was suprised at the handling and performance of this SUV.. The power is great for a 6600lb truck.. and I average around 17-20 MPG. It'll also go down the track in the low 16's

Great Car Overall — Excellent for the price I have a trailer that I use to haul construction materials when doing small project on the house. I used this to haul everything that I needed for the job. You can pack the trailer and drive the car and not even feel that you are towing something. This car is a lot of fun

Diego The Durango — I love him and want to save him. Good running car. Good gas mileage on highway 19-22 mpg. Sturdy car. Holds my family well. Wish cargo space was bigger without having to loose the third row seating. Love the color

Pros

It gets good gas mileage for an SUV. It is dependable and it is a very pretty Durango.

Cons

It does use more gas then the Cube or other small cars.

Great Ride Pure Class! — If I were to say something I do not like about this or any Durango, it would have to be that for one person, like me, it is too large with it's three seats and extra space, other than that it is dandy.

Solid Vehicle That Has Served Us Well For Many Years. — Served its purpose. Runs great. Right sized vehicle for family purposes with utility for weekend fun. Great power and no problem towing. Decent fuel economy for its size. Comfortable seating and good in all weather conditions. Not many quirks. Just a solid SUV.

For All Your Family Trips... — Not bad for a family car, tons of room and storage. Great styling and cool features for the family on the go. Fuel economy could be better, but overall perfect for those long road-trips, hauling the boat to the beach, or just hitting the weekday soccer game with friends.
