2004 Dodge Durango Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
There is almost nothing not to like about this vehicle-performance is outstanding with the 5.7 hemi. In bad weather, this car is a dream: heat is excellent, including the seats, handling is stable, snow drifts are no problem. The controls are simple, including the steering wheel radio buttons. Visibility is excellent. A month after purchase I had a head-on collision with a huge deer at seventy mph, the front end got crushed, but I simply braked and got out.
Vehicle-performance, decent mileage if you don't push too hard, ride comfort.
Move back towards the 2003 styling for a little less boxiness; lengthen the back to be able to fit a full 4x8 sheet without leaving the tailgate open.
