I love my new Durango. it handles well. I owned a 1998 Durango and it drove like a truck, very rough. My new Durango drive smoother than my husband's car. I have four children and two dogs and make trips to MA and DE and I feel we're very safe in this new Durango. If I could change one thing the SUV does have a lot of blind spots, not just at the side mirrors.
My new Durango came loaded. I love the six CD changer and DVD, Sirius sattlelite radio, heated leather seats, sunroof, and running boards, but the best features are the side air bags.
Improvement on the blind spots, especialy the ones in the front at either end of the windshield and down the sides by the second row doors. Maybe installing larger side mirrors would help. Also a keypad entry would be nice and so would OnStar.
