High hopes; Big disappointments
By metro21 on
2011 Dodge Durango Crew 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Bought it brand new. 2 years and 36k later:
Good: Nice design in and out. Looks amazing when clean. Smooth powerful V8 Hemi. Tops in towing. Actual useable 3rd row seating.
Bad: Exterior build quality is complete junk. The front bumper pops out and is now cracking like its going to fall off. The exterior mirror housing is frayed and already replaced only to have the same problem return. Tail lights feel loose and move when touched. The drivers door is not aligned with the rest of the body. Car has failed to start once- apparently a known issue with Dodges- failing TIPM's (Google it for more info.). Hemi spark plugs have to be changed every 30k miles. Recommended gas is 89.
Blue interior LED lighting, the Hemi power/ smoothness, sexy design, interior build quality, Garmin based navigation.
Improve exterior build quality!!! No wonder Dodge and other US automakers have been (and still are) behind the foreigners. It was also very difficult to find all the features that I wanted in the same car. Dodge had a very complex system where options get put together on cars that make no sense.
