About “BIG BLUE D”

Hi, I found my durango at an local chevy lot back in 08 when I was just browsing. When I first saw it, it was love at first site as it was extremly clean and I loved the two-tone paint. I went back the next day and traded the crappy expedition I had for 1month in for it and new it was the right choice right away.

While this is a daily driver she doesnt get many miles added on her in an yr, its alot less then the adverage DD. While not kept under a cover or in a garage she is kept in the best condition I can do and I think it pays off! The whole car apperance wise is atleast 9.5 out of a 10.

I honestly think she has saved our life or serious injury as when we were rear ended by an mustang at 60+ mph which slammed us into a pt cruiser we came out with minimal injury and the car did not look like it was just rear ended unlike the mustang looked like it was involved in a head on crash.


It also has had minimal problems with it other then the tie rod needs to be replaced which is an common problem. With 67k miles on the clock I think that is pretty good.

She also moves out pretty good to when you need it as 300lbs of torque and awd creates an fun ride. will most defintly hold its own against the adverage car.

Thanks for reading about Brandy!
