I'm doing some research on these 2 vehicles as I've come to the realization that I need and will use an SUV so I've started to decide what I can afford and what I want. The 2 vehicles that have caught my eye are the Toyota 4-Runner and the Dodge Durango. The 4-Runner I have not yet driven and the Durango I have not driven yet either although my wife has while on a business trip and LOVED it. My only main concern is Dodge reliability otherwise it has some advantages. First let me say that either of these 2 will not be brand new as they will be preowned in some sort of fashion. They will both be 2003/2004 models(their newest body style). The Durango is much nicer inside and the one we will get will be the Hemi version. The 4-Runner will be either the v6 or the v8. I haven't seen a preowned v8 4 Runner yet but its a matter of time. Now before I completely say that the 4-Runner is the more reliable vehicle I don't know how the new models are holding up yet since they changed body styles. Does anyone know? Anyone own either of these 2 vehicles and would like to help me out here? FWIW, I drive about 2-3 miles a day to work and back so gas mileage isn't a big deal to me so much. Most of the places I go are pretty close by so I'm not too worried about how much I spend on gas. Thoughts?
