We went from a Mid Size SUV to yhr Durango and it was the best choice ever. It's fun to drive, the interior is well designed and it's very reliable. Fuel mileage is what you can expect from a V8. It was a great buy, seating for 8 easily, comfortable and a very smooth ride. Love It.
The whole thing!
Standard Side Steps; Day Time Running Lights; A lift gate where the glass opens too, not just the whole thing.

My Durango has EVERY available option, and I absolutely love this car, it's a good family car without looking like a family car. The HEMI does use a lot of gas and the gas mileage could be better but I think it's worth the little extra it costs to get the powerful engine.
Even with the low gas mileage I have been very happy with my Durango. Not only is it a comfortable ride, it is also very capable in bad weather. The interior has a lot of room for extra passengers and with the 3rd row of seats folded down there is a lot of cargo space. Going on vacation with 2 adults and 2 children we had plenty of room for everything we packed along with a couple coolers. When extra space is needed to haul bigger items, the 2nd row also folds down. With both the 2nd and 3rd rows folded down we have even slept in the back when weather got bad while camping. Would highly recommend the Durango.
Hemi engine and optional DVD player. For long drives with children the DVD player is a great addition, well worth the little extra it costs. The heated seats are another great extra on cold mornings.
I've had the Durango for about a year now and I can't think of any improvements it needs.
Lousy gas mileage, large blind spots, dash board panel is not thought out well, things are just stuck haphazardly around and the back seat is too small. Why did I get this car? I have no idea.... I want my Pathfinder back!
