Have had my Durango for over 4 years now, put over 50,000 miles on it, and to this day with over 148,000 on the odometer, it is still a monster.
Never had any major issues outside of what is to be expected.
Plenty of get up and go for a land yacht, more than enough room for 7 people or 2 people and some luggage.
Perfect for joy riding or road trips.
Towed a 26' trailer with no issues, and have never gotten stranded off road or in bad weather.
The 360 V8 not only does a great job with working, but playing also.
Have embarrassed more than a few ricers at stop lights.

Bought the Vehicle with about 120,000 on it and have had it for almost a year now. Fuel consumption is on the low side for an SUV but bearable in the fact that I haven't yet gotten stuck in the ND snow that tends to pile up around here.
Having a 3rd row helps ALOT with 3 kids and the ride quality is the best i've experience so far in a REAL SUV.
It is a little noisy when you're standing outside with it running but inside you can talk normally without yelling while you're cruising down the highway at 75 and I've only done regular maintenance on mine and its had nothing go wrong to date.
only complaint is that with the 3rd row up there isn't much room left for cargo in the back...

I got this as my first car about 2 months ago... I LOVE IT. I got a WELL MAINTAINED one, which explains why it hasn't fallen apart. I live in the hills, yet still get decent gas mileage. It drives like a dream. My friends love it. My dad loves it. Even my mom who hates suv's loves it. I have been camping, off roading, and have taken a road trip already. It's perfect for all of these things.
Like its sibling, the Dakota, the Durango gets a new trim level dubbed SXT that serves as the entry-level Durango. Other improvements this year include side-curtain airbags, a five-speed automatic gearbox and an optional DVD video entertainment system.
My Durango ran fine home from work. Parked on driveway overnight and will now only crank and not start, half tank of gas. No problem the night before. Starter does crank over, all lights, radio, windo...
