2013 Dodge Durango Crew 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The oil is changed and the tires rotated every 4500 miles. Wiper blades (front) are changed every year. The rear blade has been changed twice. Have had an issue with the steering wheel on-center changing when the tires are rotated. Had one alignment that seemed to help but at the next rotation the same thing happened; then the next rotation would make the on-center better. Very odd. Still have the original Michelin tires at 51,800 miles. Wear has been very good. I added chrome step bars right after purchase. My wife is short and she needs these for ease of entry. The bars also enhance the look of the vehicle. No other mechanical or electronic issues. My i-phone is paired with the blue tooth and works very well. AM-FM-Sirius radio is very good. Also has a CD player that is seldom used. I use the power lift gate every day and the remote start on cold days. No issues with these. Vehicle does not have navigation.

Review

I bought this car brand new in 2013 and it was good besides the clunky transmission and loud wind noise. We have taken it on two trips from New York to Florida and put almost 40,000 miles on it. BUT sometimes the power tail gate goes up at random then locks its self up the so I have to drive to the dealer with the trunk open. The fuel economy is poor when driving slitty aggressive I got 6 mpg. The seats are comfortable but I would recommend getting cooled seats because the leather seats get VERY hot during summer.

Review

Let me start off by saying, I really do love the Durango. I love the styling which is one of the main reasons I bought it. It's been 4 years and I'm considering trading it and this is why. At 41,000 miles I noticed a couple of drops of what appeared to be oil on my driveway. I thought it might be a loose plug since the dealership had recently changed the oil. It was not coming from there, rather farther back, so being under powertrain warranty, I took it in. Good news and bad news they said. The leak was from the transfer case, both input and output seals as well as the transfer case seal on the two halves. All covered under warranty. Great...bad news...they also found that the power steering box was devoid of fluid, nearly bone dry. So there was never any fluid under the car, so where did it all go? They had no explanation, but it needed to be replaced completely. To the tune of two grand. What? With 41,000 miles? The dealership was able to sell me an extended warranty which covered steering and suspension components to the tune of $250 which was great, heading in the right direction anyway. I called up Dodge customer support and was able to influence them into covering half of the warranty purchase, so now I'm getting the repair for $125. I really can't complain about that too much, but I do have a problem with a vehicle with low mileage needing probably 3-4k in repairs already. Above that, I have had SEVERAL electrical bugs which have occurred over the years which cannot be explained or repaired. I had a list of 7 different issues that were one time events, all different, but by the time I decided to talk to service about it, I was out of warranty so I have not pursued it since none have been repeatable. For instance, I got out of the car one day and the alarm went off. Could not get it to stop no matter what I did. It finally timed itself out and never repeated. Another time, I got in and started the car and the engine revved way high. Had to shut down the car to make it stop. Another time, used the remote starter and when I got in, I pushed the starter button as normal to drive away, but nothing would happen. Nothing would work. Ended up getting out of the car and using the remote to shut the car off then getting back in to start it like normal. All of these things are adding up to me thinking I'm going to have some hefty repair bills coming my way if I don't get out of this vehicle.
