Re: Question about Sport mode

I have the 20's, but still the variance in highway mileage mpg is too great. As for other members, lets define what a "long highway trip" is. In NY/NJ, long highway trips are 30 minutes or so. ...

Re: What wheels are these?

Correct. However, IMHO, its a poor move by Chrysler (Dodge) to use chrome plated plastic over a steel rim (like a hub cab, but on an alloy wheel.) Not to mention, when purchasing a 48K Durango, you...
