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

Cons: Gas milage is painful at $4/gallon

It Does Not Take Rough Roads Well At All — My 2005 Dodge Durango 4x4 need suspension/shock sugestions. I love the vehicle if I could improve the off road ride
