For those interested in a 3rd Gen Durango, here are postings about our reliability
ok guys, here is the deal, i (shrpshtr325, section moderator) like the idea of this thread and think that it will be helpful to ourselves as well as any other people who are looking to buy and are doing research on this truck. Im just going to lay down a few guidelines here as follows.
1.)Each and Every post in this thread will include the following [any post which does not follow this format will be deleted starting today (Feb 16)].
2.)If you want advice on a purchase, opinions on what kind of deal you are getting, opinions on mods you have done, or anything else besides reliability information/problems solutions you need to make a new thread with your issue, or search for and post in an existing thread.

Type: 2011, HEMI, Citadel
Current mileage: 23,000
Trim piece over rain sensor rattles - Fixed with double-sided tape (keeps the thin plastic from tapping the windshield)
No power / Non-functional Radio/Nav/Blind-Spot detection - dealer pulled and reseated the IOD, hooked up the StarScan and reset the radio.
I have driven from Northern Virginia, south to Port Canaveral and north to Connecticut and she rides great; the superb seating is much less fatiguing on long drives than in the Yukon Denali this D replaced.

Black lining in Glove box 'sheds' on whatever is in there.
Gas Mileage: Between 17.21 and 19.04 MPG (18.37 overall average) 60/40 Highway/City
Overall I'm thrilled with my Durango - its everything I was hoping for and more. It drives great, handles relaly well and is very comfortable. Mileage is a little lower than I expected (the trip computer calculations are about 1-1.5MPG high each time compared to my calculations).

Problem/issues: Scratched chrome piece under driver side door - found by dealer at dealer prep prior to delivery and pointed out to me at time of delivery. I actually would have never noticed it. They ordered new piece and was replaced at first oil change.
No other problems - none! The DD is everything i hoped it to be - ride, comfort, towing, roominess, quiet ride and decent MPG. Would buy again in a heartbeat. It replaced a '03 GMC Envoy- no comparison.
