The ONE That Does It All - With Style, Power & Comfort

We needed a vehicle that could handle our extensive needs. I’m a musician, producer and event host, my wife and partner is an illustrator and video producer. We need to carry a considerable amount of music and video gear for live broadcast shows that raise awareness and funds for humanitarian causes. The grass-roots aspect of our shows requires a lot of travel and a vehicle capable of hauling not only gear but now a 21’ RV trailer as well. In 2017 we purchased a 2016 Durango “Limited” that we loved. Unfortunately a dishonest dealer told us the tow rating was 6,200 lbs - when in fact it lacked the necessary factory tow package and could safely only 3,500. This was THE WORST major purchase experience ever - the dealer denied their repeated misrepresentation, failed to install wiring properly and refused to make anything right - even when Dodge asked them to. Despite this - and losing over $10k we remained loyal and bought a 6 cylinder 2017 SXT WITH factory tow package but without all the extras the “Limited.” Soon after we moved from New Hampshire to Arizona where our Humanitarian Not-For-Profit Social Enterprise could do more with less driving. The Durango was over loaded as was the trailer - still it got us thru 13 states, out of the deep freeze and closer to LA where A4H will expand. My wife sold her house and I left with mine up for sale, making our trailer and tow vehicle our home for some time to come. We test drove many SUV’s and by far loved the Durango the best, so we traded in the 17 for a 2018 R/T 8 cylinder with 7,200 lb tow rating. What more anyone could ask we fail to see. The power is amazing - it’s like driving a sports car with a lift. The new one is rear wheel drive as opposed to AWD - we don’t plan to be in the snow again. With a power lift-gate and a 3rd row seat that lies totally flat - all our gear fits in and removes easily with no need to bend and strain the back. The technology works exceptionally well and with the working hood scoops it really turns heads. Probably the best feature is the ride - I have a very bad back and rare bone disease in my hip - the heated/vented excellent, supportive seats have extended my driving time several hours. The uni-body frame (no welds) keeps all wheels on the road even during fast hair pin turns. This visibility is the best of any vehicle I’ve driven - used only an extended passenger mirror hauling the trailer. Don’t make the mistake many have - spending more for a “name” I’ve been in the Lincoln, Cadillac, Lexus, Nissan Armada and they have NOTHING on the R/T except bigger size and much lower fuel economy. There were various little bugs - such as no lighted vanity mirrors in 17 and since becoming interested in the Durango I’ve researched and followed what they’ve done. 2018 will be a difficult year to forget - with R/T’s and SRT’s destined to become classics - the year they brought the best of what Mercedes, Chrysler (396 HP HEMI w/up to 24 MPG HWY) and unforgettable styling by Italians. It’s everything we wanted and much more. If you see us traveling “A4H” “A4HPROS” and “Arts4Humanity” prominently displayed on the Durango (even AZ Plate) and trailer - Say Hello - Watch For “NATIVE GROOVES” The Live Streaming A4H Show produced by STS Productions.

2018 Dodge Durango great mid-Size SUV

I love the Dodge Durango for the spacious interior. It has three row seating and seats seven people. And in the back there is a storage space underneath the floor. As well as the space behind the seat for storage. It handles very nicely. Dual climate control as well as rear climate controls. One issue that I have that I do not like is my phone does not automatically pair up with the vehicle. I have to manually connect it each time. And that is annoying. Another thing is the tailgate is very heavy to pull down from overhead. It does not automatically come with floor mats for the third row seating. Which, I think it should. Every rose should have floor mats. I don't like the carpet color, it's black/charcoal. It does show a lot of dirt. And, lastly, I don't like that there is no USB ports in the middle of the vehicle. There's two in the front, one in the consul, and one in the way back At the storage section. But there is not one in the middle for people in the backseat.

Luxury love and a beer budget.

I love my car! I could not ask for better when it comes to my Durango. It drives like a dream. It feels like it floats above the road, it drives so smooth. The exterior is absolutely beautiful! Its sleek and tailored and sharp. It's so luxurious without the luxury price tag. The interior is the same way. The features that it has are amazing. There are features that I never thought that I would have. The lay out of the inside is so spacious and roomy and very well made. The leather suede combo is just such an extra touch that really makes the vehicle pop. It makes it feel very luxurious. Over all, I absolutely love my Durango and would absolutely buy another one!
