Tons of Vehicle for the $$
By Doug on
2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Bought the Durango used nearly 3 yrs ago and initially had several minor issues with some trim pieces. However, mechanically it's been nearly perfect and very reliable. Great tow vehicle and good for family of 6. Not quite as large as Expedition or Tahoe but much less expensive, tows as much or more (I've got the HEMI) and drives much better - especially in the city. Mileage also hasn't been bad as expected. I consistently average 15.5 to 16.0 combined and easily achieve 20- 22 on the highway cruising 80. Not the prettiest vehicle out there but one to seriously consider if buying used. NEVER buy one of these big SUV's new - you'd be throwing $1000's out the window for no reason!
