2004 Dodge Durango Limited

We sold this beast a while back. Here are my thoughts on it.

What I like about it. It rides pretty well, has the 5.7 liter Hemi, and plenty of power. The exterior actually has lines, unlike most of the "worn out bars of soap" on the road today. The interior is well made and stood up nicely to family use; including two kids and two dogs. In the end it held up nicely for eight years and 101,000 miles! Looks almost like new, right? 

The downsides of the model are poor rear visibility, huge blind spots in the A pillars, and a less-than-tough steel body. Believe me, it dings pretty easy. Its off-road ability is fair but it could definitely use more clearance. It makes crazy wind noise if it is being buffeted from just the right angle.

It sold in a week and a half of Craigslist and personal e-mailing.
