Dodge is a reliable car brand.

Power steering pump is broken. Needs a power steering flush and an oil change. Transmission was done a couple years ago. It needs new brakes, brake pads & struts. It needs a tire rotation. Heat and ac and defrost work. Windshield wipers work. Only driver door can control buttons like rolling down the windows. Leather interior is tan. Heated seats. It is an SUV so it is a gas guzzler. A couple speakers are blown out. It is a 17 almost 18 year old car. I learned how to drive in this car when I was in high school. Good family car. Spacious. I love how the back seats fold down.

Dodge Durango's are the most reliable vehicles ever! It's roomy for every type of person. The vehicle we have has heated seats which is awesome! I'm sure by now, air conditioned seats are available!!

My 2001 Dodge Durango is the best car my husband and I have ever bought. It's 17 years old and still runs great! My husband does all the maintenance on a regular schedule. It has taken us on many road trips in and out of Colorado. If we were to buy another vehicle, it definitely would be a Dodge Durango! We've had minor issues throughout our 17 years, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. It's also a very comfy SUV. Lots of legroom and the third seat is great when you have kids! I'll definitely be buying another Durango when the time comes.

Our Durango serves our family of 5 well.

My Dodge Durango is amazing. It may be old but it humid down the road with plenty of life left in her. She seats 8 very comfortably which means our kids can have friends join on outings. We put our vehicle to the test with road trips, camping, and taking afternoon drives to explore. She is showing her age with some rust in the hood and an odd bit of mechanical trouble here and there. With a little elbow grease, my husband has replaced the radiator. I see my Durango being a part of our family for a few more years to come.

Totally surprised I would fall in love with a.to rengo and I never thought a car could run so well for so long Surviving many accidents and still keeps going to this day and I just plain don't wanna get rid of the thing.

I love the the size of engine which is a V8 4.7 It's a very roomy I can haul large things I love the 4 wheel drive The sound system in my Durango is amazing I have had some electrical problems but they've been fixed pretty easily however when Rust starts happening on the vehicle it's very hard to maintain however you could say that with a lot of vehicles I plan on buying another Durango when I have enough funds to purchase it I really want a 2011 black Dodge Durango with leather seats 4 wheel drive!

Dodge Durango a Safe and Affordable Option for Families

Extremely reliable, durable vehicle. Handles well for an SUV type. We don't use the third row of seating very often but it is handy when we need it. We lived near the Rockies for a year and never had much trouble with snowfall, the 4 wheel drive worked like magic. We have had some electrical panel issues and it has been in the shop a few times but overall we are very happy with it.

Kelsey S

Comfortable, and all out very reliable family truck.

Roomy, comfortable, very reliable, it is starts every time. Sporty, my favorite color, the whole family loves it, fun to take on vacations big enough to live in, nice strong motor. The whole family loves it, nobody complains lots of features got it at a good price, decent mileage, good body with very little rust.

The greatness of having a Dodge Durango.

I have a 2001 Dodge Durango and the problems with it is that getting a tire alignment costs a lot of money. The vehicle does drive great and is reliable to get us from point A to point B. I love sitting in it because it's got plenty of room and comfortable seats. I love that it has automatic locks and window.

Gregory G

Safety for my children during all seasons.

As long as I keep my Dodge Durango serviced I really don't have problems. It is very spacious. The seats fold down and give me room to haul things. The 4 wheel drive comes in handy when its winter. The doors securely lock when I am driving and I feel safe putting my children in this vehicle.

Serena R

It is a very dependable car.

I call my Durango the Beast. I have taken him on roads that normal cars would not travel. I love the 4 wheel drive feature and use quite a bit. I is not not just for the winter but is perfect for those summer evening driving through the wonderful mountains of West Virginia.

Lois B

The Power! I love the Hemi power in tough Wisconsin winters.

I love the sunroof, the leather seats and all the room! I have 2 big dogs that like to travel and it gives them the space they need. It handles extremely well. Only problem I have has is with the 4WD kicking in and locking all by itself, Electric sensor failure.

Cyndi K

The Dodge Durango is a very roomy SUV with plenty of storage areas.

The vehicle has been a very strong running. The only problem that I found out is that with the age of the older vehicle it did burn a little oil after 5, 000 miles into the oil change. I have never had a problem with the engine starting up in the cold or heat.

Jacob W

A good dependable vehicle.

I have 5 children at home and it is very reliable and comfortable. Has 3rd row seating, leather seats and gas mileage is pretty decent. It has 191, 000 miles on it and the only thing I have ever had to replace in the 2 years I have owned it is a map sensor.

Mandi D

Alberto K

Our dream vehicle that's safe for everyone. .

It's a great vehicle that is easy to drive. It handles very well. It is safe for my children. It's perfect for our very cold weather. I do not mind having to wait in the Durango when the kids are coming from school because it's spacious and comfortable.

Serena R

Three of the windows are broken. The battery dies often,.

Well this vehicle isn't my choice, it is just what I ended up with. I don't know how this car drove in its prime but right now it's not so good. The interior is decent and the body style I ok.

Ariel H

Seating to and Carrington space all at the same time.

It has been very reliable maintenance minimal one of the best things is the third row seating and the fact that the back is split allowing me to make room for groceries and still have a seat.

Mary F

It's a big car so you do have to care for it very well.

Its big and very wide it fits a large group of people. The only thing I dislike is that it does waste a lot of gas. Ii wish it didn't even when I drive it here and there to very close places.

Alex P

It is economical and a great value.

I love my car which is like my transportation and break room from work. It is sturdy and fits me perfectly. It is basic and classic. Nothing that I do not like. It is great in bad weather.

Deb P

Dodge durangos are prone to serious rust issues both externally and internally. They are also not very good on gas.

It's a rust bucket and a gas hog. But it fits our whole family and gets us where we need to go. It may not be pretty but It's fairly dependable. I do wish it had more trunk space

June G

It is reliable and takes me wherever i need to go.

I like the fact it has third row seats and is semi roomy. It does have a lot of power too. Even though it is roomy on the inside, it is not as big as a van on the outside.

Cassandra C

Dodge Durango is a perfect choice for a family of 5.

I've had my truck for almost 5 years now. I love that it has a third row seat and a V8 motor. It's been a well ran car and I've had no problem the entire time I've had it!

Nikki S

Very dependable and reliable and roomy for families and cargo.

I like that it is durable and dependable. I do not like the repair costs and the fact it is hard to find spare parts or upgrades for. I also wish gas mileage was better.

Joe W

There were a few parts that were recalled, so if you start having problems look into those things first.

It is always having problems. Just when I solve one problem, another springs up. It gets terrible gas mileage and eats oil. It is not a good vehicle and never has been.

Amanda R

Best. Truck. Ever. For now anyway...

I have not had any major problems with the car as of yet. It handles pretty smoothly and isn't too bumpy. I look forward to riding it until the wheels fall off.

Dan W

A reliable vehicle that safe.

Dodge Durango is a reliable vehicle that has lasted for many years with minor break down. It has taken me and my family on many trips and delivered us safely.

Cornell E

Its very spacious and a good family car.

I am having to replace parts that break and the transmission is out so having to replace it performance is good and the room in the vehicle is comfortable.

Ryan H

It has really comfy seats.

Lots of small things break down easily. The speedometer wont work unless you smack the dashboard. It has decent mileage, and overall is reliable.

Tiffany P

The car has a 4 by 4 suspension system good for snow.

Suspension is a little weird. Car is all rusty underneath. It's like a ticking time bomb, fix one thing and then another thing gets busted.

Christopher M

Easy to drive and maintain. Like this Make and Model better than the Chevy Blazer I used to own.

Great Vehicle, wish the seats were a little higher, would like a little better gas mileage. Over all would buy another Dodge Durango again

Mel W

Dodge Durango workhorse. Gets me everywhere.

I have had my car for 15 years and I love it. The only problem I have is the door regulators always break. Have replaced them 8 times.

Kim O

Elderly Tank of Fear. It's well built

It's an older car so it's harder to take care of but it's worth it for the safety factor. It's a better built car than most now a days

Angel B

Dependable, reliable handles well, turning radius is great!

No complaints. Bought my Durango 17 years ago and have never had any problems with it. It's a great ride. Roomy and comfortable.

Marge S

The gas mileage is really good.

It has enough seats and enough room. I also like that it has power, too. I like it is v8 engine and it gets decent gas mileage.

Carol P

It has third row seating so it is very spacious and plenty of room for friends and family.

I like how spacious it is. I like the leather, power seats. It has been fairly reliable. I like that it has a lot of outlets.

Damaris C

If maintained properly it is a diehard vehicle. Have towed horses and campers and gets reasonable gas mileage while towing.

Great vehicle though I do have recurring problems with power steering. Pump seems to keep going out despite full replacement.

Francene R

My truck is equipped with cameras and an alarm system.

I'm happy that I have a vehicle. It often gives me problems. I dislike that it is a lot of work that needs to be done to it.

We need it for hauling, towing, pets, and it needs to be overall comfy and good on gas

Plenty of room. Great for hauling the camper. Awesome for hauling small loads of things for the gas mileage. Comfy
