The high initial depreciation makes this SUV an compelling buy if you're looking for a relatively-new SUV. I appreciate the narrow body and tight turning radius which makes parking easier in parking lots and garage. The ride is smooth and quiet. I am getting 19/24 mpg.
This is a fantastic vehicle.. And I have owned many many cars before, this is one of the vehicles I love the most. I've always had BMW's and Mercedes (Still have) and I love german technology, I think Mercedes Benz ownership over Chrysler inherit a lot of nice features, this truck handles like a german SUV, its not short on anything, it is very comfortable, amazingly nicely equipped and very attractive, fantastic MPG. I get around 22mpg in average driving here in Orlando, FL. Don't ever think twice if you are buying one, this car is amazing.

None that I can recall right now. This suv is awesome
I bought the 2012 dodge durango, after much consideration. This is the 1st suv/crossover i have owned, and I love it.
It is fun to drive, handles like a dream, u-turns on a dime, and has enough room for my 2 grandsons age 7 & 8, and my daughter that has 2 toddlers in car seats. I had considered the Honda Pilot, the Ford Explorer and the GMC Acadia. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
I love the Keyless remote start, touchscreen radio, parking sensor, backup camera is really cool, digital readouts on dash that can be customized to your liking.
I have driven a Mercedes ML-350 for the past two years and when I found out that the Durango is built on the same platform (a leftover from when Daimler owned Chrysler, splitting in mid-2008), I had to test drive it.
It has the same exact quality, fit and finish, road feel, and many of the same features of the ML-350. Except the price tag!
The vehicle looks great, is amazingly quiet, plushly appointed - and yet manly.
The optional 3rd row seat with middle row captains chairs give the interior that convenient and huge mini-van feeling - yet you're not subjected to actually driving a mini-van.
I have driven so many vehicles and this is, hands-down, my favorite ever.
Fit and finish, quality, road feel, interior styling.
After several years of driving multiple imported SUVs this is our first ever Chrysler product.
After three months and 3,000+ miles this has proven to be an excellent vehicle. No problems or even minor issues to report, the build quality is excellent so are fit and finish. It feels and drives most solid and upmarket with details well thought out, all functionality in place and very surprising interior quality.
After reading questionable reviews about the 5 spd transmission and slow acceleration I have no issues with either, this is a large and heavy SUV but the transmission performs well in everyday driving and the acceleration, both off the line and passing, is more than adequate.
Included in the Crew model memory settings for two drivers, keyless entry/ignition and remote start are nice bonus features typically found on top of the line models only.
The sound system is excellent including very user friendly multi-media interface; no hassle plug and play for i-pod and Bluetooth devices.
Power lift gate (again standard equipment) is a great feature.
Plenty of interior room, we have chosen the optional captain seats in the 2nd row which are very comfortable and easy to get in/out for the kids, the opening between the captain seats makes access to 3rd row very easy and makes the 3rd row feel more open and roomier.
