Been in the market for a 3 row SUV for over a year.
I waited for the new Chevy Tahoe to come out - and it is really nice but very expensive.
Read great reviews on the Durango, test drove it and thought it was the best bang for your buck.
The styling is aggressive and the inside is refined.
Looked at the GMC Acadia as well and it was just "ok" - the wow factor was not there.
The Durango has it.
I put reliability at 5, but to be honest I have not had it long enough to really rate it - I guess I'm hoping it will be a 5.
UConnect, Hemi Engine, R/T aggressive styling, easy access to the 3rd row, remote start
The inside storage is something to be desired, the glove compartment and arm rest storage is very small.
Especially if you have the CD player.
For a car that has basically every "bell and whistle" it would be nice to have automatic folding side mirrors.
They are still manual.
