Great SUV all around
By bricker23 on
2012 Dodge Durango Crew 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
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.
