Great Truck — This truck is a great vehicle for highway driving, towing a trailer, and taking to the beach or mountains. There is tons of room and also has a 3rd row seating for extra people! Great car all around minus the gas milage.

2005 Dodge Durango — Love the 4WD and towing capacity. Leather interior is nice as well as the entertainment system. Gas milage is mediocre at 13 city 18 hwy. Its fun to drive with its 5.7L hemi. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone with a need to tow or haul.

The Best Truck I Have Owned. — This truck is underpowered and should be modified. Off the line power is average at best, top end power is respectable. Braking and handling are outstanding courtesy of the AWD and 4 wheel disc brakes. The truck has very few squeeks and rattles on rough terrain and none in the city. Beautiful truck inside and out, I am 6'6" and have plenty of head,shoulder, leg and hip room. That's more than I can say for the rest of the Big 3 and foreign automakers, Trust me I sampled them all. As far as fuel mileage I am averaging right around 15 miles per gallon and that is a mix of city and highway. The truck is a blast to drive, you wouldn't believe a bigger SUV would handle that well but the AWD really makes it a fun truck to drive and I never feel top heavy.

Powerful And Large Family Hauler — I purchased my Durango new with the sole purpose of using for family vacations. It fit that bill to a "T". We hauled our boat 1200 miles on I-95 and averaged 18 MPG. A family of four and 2 weeks worth of luggage fit with room for the family pet. Maintenance only required oil changes and a radiator flush, never needed anything else. Overall I am very happy with this vehicle.

Great — Great SUV. Very reliable transportation. Vehicle is excellant in snow,ice,rain or really any weather with it's 4 WD. The ride is very comfortable also. It is smooth and soft with no feeling of it being a big SUV or truck. Vehicle has plenty of leg and head room also, for those long trips you may need to take. Also, for hauling stuff around, there is plenty of room and even more when you lay the backseat down flat.

Great Reliable Vehicle With No Issues — I did not dislike anything about this vehicle besides the gas mileage. Overall I can look pass the gas mileage when I have a good looking, dependable vehicle. This vehicle has carried my large family on trips, it has hauled trailers, and been used for moving a couple of times. Very dependable vehicle that is great in the wintery Ohio weather.

Rhino — overall a nice vehicle but there are some downfalls to it the brakes are not that good but it is a big SUV. but very smooth ride because of the All Wheel Drive system. Being a fully loaded truck its makes you feel like royalty.

2005 Durango — 2005 Dodge Durango Limited / 5.7L Hemi - auto / 3.55 4WD The 5.7L Hemi is a great engine. Ever since it came out, I wanted a Mopar with one of these. A Challenger would have been nice, but the wife needed a grocery hauler. So I bought her an SUV that would get her to the store in under 20 seconds.
