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

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!

Great Suv! — From E420 to a Durango. My previous 2 cars were E Class Sedans. Having never owned a Dodge I have been pleased with the reliability, great dealership and gas mileage! Mine is Limited with Hemi. With 155,000+ I average19 MPG. Best mileage was 24 HWY usually get 21 HWY and 16 City. For a huge SUV this is great. I looked and drove every large SUV but this had the best combination of price, size and options (not the best looking a bit like a bulldog). I ordered this and then added the extended warranty from the dealership. The lack of problems made the extended warranty a waste. I needed the extended warrantyt with my MBs. Considering I usually sell my cars at 135 - 150 K (On the road a lot for work) I plan on keeping it and rolling past 200K. It still looks good and drives well. Love the Hemi with the valve shut down. If you need a big SUV buy a Durango with the Hemi!

Pros

It's beastly.

Cons

It's huge.

I Like It, On Occasion, But Not An Everyday Car For Me. — It's a tank. Gas mileage sucks, but there's nothing like hand-over-hand steering this beast onto a two-lane road. It was a pretty good deal when bought, and has served us well, and is continuing to do so. It's taken a couple repairs, but the best part are the tires.

2005 Durango, Slt 4x4. 4.7 Litre Magnum V-8 — I have the 4.7 litre in my Durango. It pulls just fine for a small V-8. The Hemi would be overkill. brakes seem ok for the size of the vehicle. it's a solid little truck, with no squeaks or rattles on bumpy roads. Extremely quiet for a V-8. Thw AWD is great in the snow. Love it.

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.)
