Pros

Great Power

Cons

Poor fuel economy in th city

It's The Only 4x4 Out There With A 5.7l V8 — It's a great vehicle for Highway driving - hauls a family of seven adults in comfort. Also with it's huge 5.7L V8, it makes a good hauler of loads. Good for camping trips both in the desert as well as the rocks. Fuel economy is not too great in citydirving coditions. It's long weelbase makes it difficult to crest dunes.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

Love My Durango — I love my truck. I have driven many different SUV's before and I fell in love with this as soon as I sat in it. I truly enjoy riding in it and so do my two sons. There is plenty of room for longer trips and rooms to move around a bit. Honestly, I have also been finding that it gets pretty decent gas mileage as well.

Pros

Plenty of power to tow and nice enough to make you feel pampered.

Cons

Gas milage is painful at $4/gallon

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.

Pros

Has a lot of space, great for winter and road trips, never broke down on me.

Cons

Tires are a bit costly, and if you let your tank run empty, its a lot a fill up.

Dodge Durango Slt — Great car! Most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. Lot's of power and very easy to maintain. Looks sharp out on the town or out on the ranch. V8 engine is a must to get past those slow pokes in the slow lane!

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.
