We've owned the Durango for roughly 2 years and it only has 54,000 miles. Overheating is very common and now the head gaskets are blown. It'll run $1,100 to $1,600 to repair. Save some heartache and don't go Durango. However, if you enjoy sitting in the 3rd seat while it cools down, this may be the gas guzzler for you.
Get up and go ability.
Dodge should listen to disgrunted consumers and fix their product. As sad as it is to say, I think I'm going to stick with foreign products.
Had to replace engine at 86,000 miles. This is due to an engine sludge problem Dodge doesn't want to talk about. The limited slip differential needed rebuilding at 91,000 miles. Any dealer would say these troubles are do the lack of maintanence, not true in my case. I'm done with DaimlerChrysler Croporation.
This car is okay, and that's about it. You don't expect an SUV to get 25 mpg, but this thing is like Dudley Moore at last call - drink, drink, drink. It doesn't "hug" the road well, and it really feels only average in the snow (part of the reason for owning an SUV). It hasn't been a horrible experience, but no way I buy it again.
Absolutely the finest perfromance vehicle I have seen since the 70's. This vehicle for its size and weight just moves out. Power, comfort and reliability are excellent. If gas mileage is your issue, then you probably can't afford the vehicle to start with. If you can afford the vehicle, the gas mileage doesn't matter!
Looks and handling. A real nice looking vehicle that handles like it is on rails!
