2006 Dodge Durango SUV Limited 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This truck is great. I just bought it about a month ago. It is has the Hemi engine which is the best preforming truck I have ever driven. It can tow like hell and it is so comfortable I wouldn't even know I am towing anything. If you are in the market for an suv This is a great option.


Best Features

Navigation system talks to me, Dvd player, etc...


Worst Features

front and rear bumper plastic it is very flimsy.

2006 Dodge Durango SUV Limited 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have had this 2006 Limited HEMI for 3 years now and no problems whatsoever. This is an excellent SUV. It will tow just about any trailer with the 5.7L HEMI. Fit and finish on the interior of the Limited model is very good overall. Plenty of off the line power with no lag. Factory Navigation system from Alpine is very good, although it isn't touchscreen and requires CD map updates periodically. Ride and comfort are exceptional. Visibility is outstanding. Perhaps a bit better final inspection as a drain pipe wasn't originally installed in the side pillar which caused water leaks in the first rain. Dealer installed at no charge. Overall, Dodge makes some very fine trucks like this one.


Best Features

HEMI power, comfort, Nice well- appointed interior, ride quality, Navigation, Sirius radio, cargo space, tow capacity, looks like a big and brawny REAL SUV (as opposed to wimpy import SUVs), good highway fuel economy (21-22mpg), cupholders perfect, good ergonomics on center console and dash.


Worst Features

Better than 12mpg city fuel economy, upgrade to a 6 spd. trans with manual shift control allowing downshifting, seats that fold completely flat for cargo, shorter antenna that clears "maximum clearance" in parking structures (needs minimum 6'8" of clearance), decrease body roll.

Review

I have had this vehicle for 2 years and have taken many long trips and done quite a bit of towing. When driven conservatively, I experienced 25 mpg on a trip from NY to Vermont! It is an amazing vehicle and has been very reliable. I have had very few issues with the vehicle and the only disappointing factor is the rapid depreciation. I picked it up when it was 4 months old with 4000 miles for 20k, so I'm in a better situation than most who purchased these vehicles new, but based off my ownership experience and total and complete satisfaction, I would recommend a Durango to anyone looking for the extra space and ability to tow.


Best Features

Comfort, very quiet, plenty of power, exceptional fuel mileage considering the weight and power, navigation, bluetooth, heated seats, power tailgate, tough looks, top notch paint job and the list goes on!


Worst Features

A little more legroom for the second row, a close button on the tailgate for the power feature, heated second row seats, a light to let you know when the engine switches over to 4 cylinder mode

Review

I got rid of my anemic performing 4.7 V- 8 Dakota that wouldn't tow worth a hoot, got a Hemi that gets better gas mileage (multi displacement technology) and tows great.


Best Features

The Hemimotor and all the creature comforts of the limited package.


Worst Features

Would like to see a dual zone climate control.

Review

Exceptional features minus the bling. As a 6'4 Mr.Mom, I can comfortably haul our kids or sheets of drywall without missing a beat! I get 14mpg in the city and about 19-20mpg on the highway. Our Durango is a pleasure to drive. Steering is smooth and responsive. The interior is quiet. By the way, on the freeway the Hemi is the real deal! When you need to change lanes it goes into warp speed although the driver always feels a sense of being in total control.


Best Features

Navigation system, handsfree phone, DVD, and Hemi.


Worst Features

Materials could be more refined.Less hard, monochrome plastic.
