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.
