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!
97K miles and its yard art. After taking care of the Durango with top quality service and fluids this puppy overheated driving up the hill to my house warping both heads. Steer clear of Dodge products they are poorly built and do not stand up to real word use.
Third row seating is great for families
Build them to last 200K miles like a Toyota! I'll never buy a Dodge again!
What a pig. I like to buy cars and drive them forever. I had this Durango in the dealer for overheating problems no less than 5 times over the course of 1.5 yrs. (yes I am stubborn). New water pump, new radiator, new thermostat, new hoses... still overheats. Replaced sway bars and a few yrs later the front end squeeks again. Fast truck and fun to drive. But not reliable and terrible mileage (14-15 on the hwy doing avg 70-75). Hit a bump and you're airborne. You can do better.
Fast, interesting body shape.
Better mileage (come on - its a mid size SUV, Suburbans get better mileage).
