I've owned my Durango almost 1 year now and have 15,600 miles on it.
Pros: Comfortable, roomy and the kids love the DVD and 3rd row options. Can seat 5 adults and 2 kids comfortably.
Cons: Poor fuel economy...even with the V-6 engine. Spending about $80 every 5 days...and I work from home! Poor acceleration with the 6 cyl. Resale is horrible.
I tried trading it in this week on a more economical vehicle and it is only bringing $10,000 on trade (original MSRP $27,000). Will never buy another one. Also, sounds like the transmission is already starting to slip and there is a rattle in the back somewhere. My '01 Tahoe (V-8) was far superior in fuel economy, quality and performance.
Comfortable ride, DVD, 3rd row option.
More horsepower in V-6, fuel economy, interior materials...not so much cheap plastic. Needs a bigger glove compartment. Alloy wheels should be standard...lose the plastic hubcaps on a $27,000 vehicle.
