2006 Dodge Durango Review:
I purchased the Durango new and it was the most comfortable SUV that I test drove. Even the back seats are better than the average SUV. I go to places that most other SUVs have to use 4WD to get into, I just leave it in all WD and it gets through. I have only used 4WD one time to get out of loose sand. Rough roads are no problem, the suspension can handle even dirt roads with protruding rocks like they weren't there! The steering is responsive and quick, The cruise control is very precise and maintains the set speed to within 2 mph, up hill or down hill. The Alpine stereo is awesome! With Sirius satellite option, I can listen to the same station everywhere I go. The cloth seats are durable and comfortable, even in the desert. I can pack all my camera gear, suitcases, and cooler in the space behind the rear seat with room to spare, even with the third seat up. There's even more room with the seat down, enough to haul a washer and dryer! The addition of a collapsible basket for groceries along with the cargo net is a great little self-bought option. The items carried in it don't roll around. The remote controlled rear hatch is great when it's raining, because I can open it before I get to the car to load the items in before they get too wet. All in all, the Durango is the best vehicle I have owned, out of 12.
