Great if taken care of, just like any other vehicle
3 of 4 seats have trouble reclining.
I think that this is a good vehicle. Some things have gone wrong, but they have been minor. The performance and comfort of this vehicle far outweigh the problems. Its powerful, roomy, comfortable, and plenty of features when loaded, and I think it looks great. I am an auto mechanic at a Dealership in Ohio. I have worked on my fair share of Durangos and have come to this conclusion, PEOPLE DO NOT TAKE CARE OF THEIR CARS!!! Every person I ask says that they change their oil regularly and do routine maintenance on the vehicle. When I ask them what routine maintenance they are talking about, they stutter. I check the problem and it is caused by lack of oil changes, or other ROUTINE maintenance problems. Its like going to the dentist and he/she asks you if you floss your teeth regularly and you say yes. Then he/she opens your mouth and sees tons of food stuck in between your teeth. Its just that obvious that the person is lying. You can't just buy a car and expect it to last forever with just oil changes. If your car hits 60,000 miles on it you should have replaced all fluids at least once, done a full tune up, and it is now time for a point by point inspection. These couple hundred dollars will save you huge hassles and thousands of dollars in the long run.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
