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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable,Storage,Comfortable,Gas Mileage

Cons: Style, Floor Mats are CHEAP! Who new a plastic grill.

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.)

Pros: Great Power

Cons: Poor fuel economy in th city

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.

Pros: Comfort

Cons: fuel economy

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Cons: gas milage

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's beastly.

Cons: It's huge.

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: Reliable, sturdy, plenty of room

Cons: Nothing so far.

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.

Pros: Roomy, quiet, and fully loaded.

Cons: A little harder on gas than my 98 dodge SS/T  pickup.
