comments/notes:
Has been on 2 roadtrips consisting over 3,000 miles each and was great on both. Plus it is my wife's daily driver. Just put on a K&N 77 series and about to put on a Flowmaster cat-back exhaust. Has been an excellent vehicle in the first year.

Current mileage: 900

Problems/issues:
-Passenger side front window - the felt on the rubber trim that touches the window on the inside came unglued so the window would rub against rubber trim and pull it down into the window, it would also leave a nasty streak on the window every time you rolled it down and up.

Solution- Dealer replaced the trim piece under warranty and at the same time scratched my window tint pretty bad. Had to get window tint replaced and they reimbursed me the money to have it done at original tint shop.

Purchased: 02/2012
Current mileage: 10,000

Problems/issues:
Heater hose leaked the day I purchased the truck. Dealer fixed it but gave me a used chevy to drive while they had it. Can you imagine on day 1 getting a flippin' used car.

I have some sort of oil seepage around the alternator. Dealer is "monitoring".

Occasionally the trip piece on the defroster pops up. I just push it back down.

No mechanical issues - gets 25+mpg highway

comments/notes:
I love the look of the truck & the ride & fit/feel of the interior. Fun truck to drive - the longer the trips the better.

I hate my dealership - I wish I just bought my second dodge dakota - from the chevy dealer across the street from the dodge dealer!! Wish I could have bought this from them.

Statistically the JGC/Gen3 Durango has been the most trouble free new model release of any Chrysler vehicle in history.

Your sample here will be tainted because few zero reporters of troubles will be in a section of a forum were trouble is being reported.

I have owned my Crew w/v6 now for 12 months and have 18,645 miles on it. One minor issue to report is the windshield washer nozzle on passenger side shoots a stream of fluid vs spray as intended.

Overall MPG around 19. Highway around 25. Towing 16 MPG (mostly highway). I tow a 18.5 foot Ranger Reata that weighs in at 3900# plus passengers and just returned fron a 550 mile driving trip to northern Wisconsin pulling boat and loaded Durango. Towed flawlessly.

Overall, very happy with quality, performance and ride comfort. Would buy again, probably will.
