My folks are thinking about buying a Durango today and I went to look at it. I was shock as how nice it rode. Its nothing like my father's Dakota. Its a 4X4 5.2 V8. The only things it does not have is the leather and the bigger V8. Since my dad is now completely retired and doesn't see the need to go spend a fortune on a new SUV (he is going the used auto route), he feels this Durango is all he needs. The 4X4 is for when he goes to visit my sister in the winter up in Iowa and sometimes when he goes hunting in the Off-road area around here(when he buys a 4X4 he does use it). It's big enough for him and my mom. And the V8 is there for when he needs the power. So what are y'all opinions on these Durangos?
