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.)

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

2006 Dodge Durago 4x4 Limited — We have owned this vehicle for 6 years and it has been a great vehicle. No major problems. The check engine light popped once in 6 years. The vehicle had great power while towing a 4000lbs boat. I would definitely purchase again.

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.

Pros

Overall, really good vehicle if you need space, seating and power.  Looking good is thrown in as a bonus.
UPDATE: 1st time driving it in the snow and it drives great.  Awesome!

Cons

If I had to know one thing about the durango, it would be the gas mileage. Keep it in mind if you look at one and keep your right foot out of the pedal.

Great Suv For A Family. — SO far I am loving everything about my Durango. It can always use more power which the aftermarket has parts for that. Styling is nice since it stands out in a sea of SUV's. The gas mileage could be better but having the hemi I knew this going into the purchase. I try keep my foot out of it when I can and estimate an average 14-16 mpg per tank. I have gotten around 22 mpg on trips if I keep the speeds down. The stereo is really good for stock and my son loves the dvd player in back with wireless headset, thankyou Dodge. As far as maintenance costs go, I have had it for a few months so no problems to report. There is a small spot in the drivers rear quarter panel that has bubbling paint which is rust, Didn't see this when I bought it but I can get it fixed. This seems to be a prevalent problem with this model. Theres lots of different builds for this modle so find the options you are looking for and look around. You will get more SUV for you money with the Durango than any other make.

Rides Nice, Comfortable, Safe. — Purchase new in 2006 was a dealer Demo car. 5.7L Hemi (4,6,8) AWD, leather, DVD, CD, Dual air, towing pkg. fairly well eqpt. This is my wife's daily ride, she picked it, she drives it. Runs good, fuel mileage a little lacking at 17 around town and 21 on the highway. Well built, comfortable, taken many trips to the beach in it. Plenty of power, will certainly get out of it's own way! Has the DVD player which is great for the kids 8 passenger seating lots of room. As with my other Dodges no repairs other than wear and tear items. Brakes tires etc.

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.

Loved My Durango — I loved my Durango, but I had a lot of problems with it. Remotes stopped working, sticking when you turned the key to start it, had warranty but Chrysler could NEVER fix it! It killed me to get rid of her, but I had no choice.
