"I had a durango once before and we sold it to a dear friend of mine, now you wouldnt usually go selling vehicles to friends unless you knew they were good, no GREAT! This SUV is nothing short of AWESOME! I liked it so much that I had to get another one. The reason we sold it in the first place was because my husband found another car for me (it had other bells and whistles that my husband liked) so I ended up driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee for about 6 months. After having had a Durango for more than 2 years, I felt stifled in the Jeep. Oh there was nothing wrong with it other than I liked the roominess of my Durango, and I a absolutely adore the RAM facia. As for performance, it is awesome. I used to drive a super charged mustang, then a supercharged corvette so I am very used to having serious power in a vehicle, well the Durango, from the factory, was great power for the weight it had to carry. It doesnt give out on hills or mountain grade roads (I drive between California and Idaho-alot!). So if you are going up hill, and you push on the gas, it picks up speed and passes everyone else. Yea, this SUV is an all around 5 star rating for me!! Love it! Love it! Love it!!!"
