    New Dodge Durango

    Does anybody drive a 2011 or newer Durango? I'm shopping for a diffrent vehicle and test drove a Ford Explorer, Flex, Chevorlet Traverse and last of the day was a newer Durango. I was really impressed with the Durango. It just seemed to handle excellent, and the interior was very nice.

    I was leaning toward the Traverse because of it's so big, but now not so sure. Mucn nicer interior on the Dodge and decent technology package.

    Everyone needs to own a Dodge once in their life.

    Don't know what your needs are, but did you try a Ford Edge? It seemed to be roomier than the Explorer.

    A Honda Pilot will give you more options standard. Everyone I know who has one loves theirs. (Including myself) A fully loaded Pilot with 4WD, Nav, and Read Entertainment can be had for $38 -39k.

    Re: New Dodge Durango

    We have friends with a Honda Pilot and that thing is amazing. 130k miles and if you didn't look at the odometer you'd think it had 20k miles. It's a little boring but they haven't done anything to it except tires, oil changes, and brake pads. No creaks, interior looks near perfect (a little dated), etc.

    We have a 2010 Traverse and love it. Currently has about 50K miles and no problems at all. I tow a 17 ft aluminum bass boat and don't even kow it's there. Mileage varies from 18-22.

    That audio ad to the right would suggest you get a Ford...

    Re: New Dodge Durango

    Bought a 2013 Pathfinder in mid November. Has plenty of room for the family, on par with the Traverse. Gets better gas mileage than any that have been mentioned here. Recently took a 1000 mile trip averaged better than 25 miles to the gallon. Live in the Chicago Suburbs and get a 20 -23 miles per gallon on the typical city driving tank.

    I really can't complain about the vehicle. Was a little worried about buying a first model year but since the engine and transmission have all been used by Nissan for years, it eased my mind.

    I will say since it is a first model year the option packages haven't been worked out yet, but if you are looking for that size of a car it should be on the list.
