I just love my Durango, hubby wants me to get a new one but I want to keep this one. The gas is another issue - yes it sucks. Great for hauling kids - lots of them. Wonderful in the snow. Have had to replace the ball joints in both front wheels twice. But still runs good with 135,000. miles.
The 3rd seat, lots of leg room
Not much you can do about the price of gas or the fact that the Durango uses a lot - I knew that when I purchased it.
