It's Been An Awesome Vehicle For The Family With No Complaints — It has been a great vehicle to haul around the whole family. It wish it would have been better on gas but 15mpg city and 20mpg hwy is great for a vehicle of this size. Very reliable vehicle with minimal repair cost to date.

Fun To Drive In England — nice vehicle to drive. one of the biggest on the road in England. It performs nicely, but eats gas like nothing. Cost of ownership is not too bad, but it is fairly new. If you need to haul a bunch of ppl around this is the car for you.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

This was our vacation vehicle because we were tired of mini-vans.  It almost worked.

Cons

My teens were ready for a mini-van again after 2 years of vacations in the Durango!

It Would Pull Anything With Little Affect On Performance, And Was Fast And Comfortable. — I loved driving my Durango, it was smooth, POWERFUL, handled nice for an SUV and it got a lot of compliments. Mine had every option available so I was kind of spoiled by it. It even got about 20mpg average on the highway with the HEMI. I only had 2 complaints about it: The NAV system wouldn't let my wife make updates while I was driving, I know, a safety feature. And my other problem was the lack of storage for the 2nd row passengers, they had no place for their electronics or to store DVD's. (ok...a 3rd complaint: 2nd and 3rd row passengers wanted a kill switch for the subwoofer in the back!)

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Dodge Durango Limited — When you put your foot down on that pedal it just jumps off the gate. Then if you take the stability control off you can go sideways with t. I also lke the leather interior very nice. The only thing i don't like is the whopping 13 miles per gallon.

Pros

Good handling, drives like a car and not a truck. Roomy interior, nice style. Lots of options available.

Cons

Maintenance issues, pricier parts than a Ford or Chevy. Towing capabilities lack.

A Good Family Vehicle — The Durango has been a fun vehicle for hauling the family and friends around, it seats up to 8 easily and has been our go-to SUV when it comes to getting people together. I've driven this in severe north eastern Ohio weather, a snow belt, with complete confidence. The 4 wheel drive and excellent steering and road handling capabilities has never let me down. Maintenance costs have been higher than with our Expedition and it has required more trips to the dealer for servicing. Overall however it has been a pleasure to own one.

Pros

Roomy, great interior and seats. Handles beautifully for such a large SUV. 4WD makes it a safe reliable car in the winter. Driver's sitting position and visibility is excellent.

Cons

Gas mileage is less than other SUVs.

Recommended For A General Use Suv — Love the handling of the Durango. Much better than a Ford Explorer or Expedition or Chevy SUVs. Engine performance however is not as great, and maintenance costs are a factor. I have the 4.7 liter magnum, I think if I had the 5.7 L I'd have the perfect SUV.

Pros

Hemi power is awesome.  Roomy and comfortable.  Great turning radius.  It handled my electric scooter on a lift in the rear very well, just bad handling in high winds and had to adjust for the lifted front end by lowering the lights to match it.  It tends to feel light it's floating in front, but I got used to that.

Cons

Mileage, but then again I wanted a Hemi.  It's worth it.

Outstanding — I love the Durango with the Hemi. The six with the trans it comes with just does not work. I got better mileage with the Hemi than I would have with the six cyl. It carried max'ed out loads and folks with ease. It wasn't so large that I felt I was docking a ship when I parallel parked it.

Never Boring, Travelling Car — "sorry for my poor English" i had this car for 6 yrs now with 75 k miles on it,i traveled with it 3 times, one of those time was 1500 km (about 14.5 hrs with the borders and fuel stoppages) consecutive ride at an average speed of 130 km/hr, it felt comfortable all the way and very quiet, the AC is very hot at summer and you can take turns on high speeds at all. beside that no real problems with car. I did some off-roading with it and it good... definitely not as good as Toyota's but it handle mild terrains.
