Everything is bigger in Texas, Including Failures

Have had my Durango for 5 months. At 3500 miles, I took it in for two problems. The first wasn't a huge deal, as the A/C controls in the rear did not work. I could still control the a/c from the front controls. Dealership said there wasn't as fix at the time, but ended up fixing it a month later. Now for the fun part. At 3500 miles, I started hearing a loud screeching coming from my engine. Took it in, and the water pump had gone out. Interesting problem to have so early on, but it happens. About 3 weeks later, I smell coolant burning off in the engine bay. It's been in the shop 4 times now, and still no fix. I am losing coolant everywhere, and its all over the engine bay. Dodge refuses to do anything about it, stating that there is no fix. I am not saying all Dodges are bad, but if you get a bad one, don't expect anyone within Dodge to do anything about it.

Great vehicle not so great gas mileage

by from on June 21, 2013

Love my Durango overall but wish it got better gas mileage. But I guess that is the price you pay for a v8 engine and interior space.

Dodge Durango 2012

Traded in a Yukon XL for this vehicle, brand new. Love it. Only issue is I'm leary about it hydroplaning on wet roads or slushy roads. I didn't notice that with my Yukon, but the Yukon was a lot heavier vehicle. Interior of ours has chrome trim, which makes it blinding when the sun hits it just right. I usually keep a small towel in inside during summer months to cover this and stop the problem. Overall, a great vehicle. Seats 7, plenty of storage room and tons of leg room in the 2nd row seats. Great gas mileage. We purchased this through Nemaha Valley Motors in Seneca, KS and they go above and beyond to get you the vehicle in the color and options you want!

Bought a used 2013 Dodge Durango crew, and fell in love after 100 miles. the ride is near perfect, the v6 has plenty of power, and I'm big enough so people don't cut me off when driving on the highway. And my wife loves the back seat.

This is our Second Durango, much nicer than the 2003 we had in the past. Nice ride, decent gas mileage and extra storage for camping and shopping. Owned for 18 months and have not had any issues for service - only normal oil changes to date.

BEST DURANGO YET

Our 3rd durango. 04,09, now 2012. THIS IS THE BEST ONE YET. Its just the right size for our family of 5. we need the AWD for our snow trips (we just wave at the chain check folks). the v6 has plenty of power, 22mpg. The CREW is a good balance between features and cost. (didnt need the front radar and chrome mirrors). We really like the Italian inspired interior. it turns out Daimler mercedes engineered the running gear (nice job). (I think its the "G" series), then Fiat designed the interior. We got the 2nd row bucket seats so its a 6 seater (recommend). The only reason for the Hemi would be to tow something larger than a jet-ski, the new vvt V6 does a good job and gets way better mileage. Hold out for the 2014 with 8-speed transmission. it will get at least 3mpg better.

I absolutely love this vehicle. I have the 2013 RT Durango Crew. I do have 1 complaint, but not unexpected. Gas mileage is far from ideal! Of course I'm comparing it to a 4 cylinder avenger. So, if you are ok with 22mpg on highway, 13-15 in city then I totally recommend this vehicle!!! Love it!!! ~ ND resident

Our two first reguirements were that it had to have 3 rows of seats, cloth seats and backup camera. After looking at all the different make and models we liked the Dodge Durango the best. Two items that we didn't get that now we should have but weren't in our package was the blind spot camera and the second was power seats.

Durango sxt with v6. Great ride and comfort. Peppy for such a big vehicle. Our 4th durango and love them. My wife and 3 kids were in a bad accident last week and had a front collision and rolled 3 times. Everyone walked away with just some seat belt bruising. Very safe vehicle. We will be buying another as soon as the insurance check comes in. Very happy with dodge.
