I bought this car about a year and a half ago. it barely had 14000 miles on it and was in perfect condition. I paid $15.5k for it and got it for a steal. I had heard a lot of bad things about the Durangos but for the price, I could not pass it up. I have driven this car across the country twice and have not had ANY problems with it.
The v8 engine definitely has power. This car rides so smooth that you honestly can not tell the difference between 10mph and 100mph.
The only inprovement i would suggest is to make the back seats just a little bit bigger.
