    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The Hemi had great power while towing a 4,000lbs boat. Very reliable.

    Cons: gas mileage

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It fits seven people so it's a great family option car

    Cons: Could be better on gas mileage

    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.)

    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!

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Lots of room, pleanty of power.

    Cons: Fuel mileage

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Looks and sounds tough!

    Cons: Chrysler couldn't figure out how to fix it!
