Not sure about any %, but when the car needs an oil change it will let you know with a little message. You can then reset that (or the dealer will if they change the oil), and then the car will remind you again the next time. It uses an algorithm to determine when the oil needs changing.

The newer ones (13's?) show the %. The older EVIC style just tell you when it needs changed. If you change it early, or when do you have to reset it by doing the following.
1. Without pressing brake pedal, push start button and cycle it to the ON/RUN position, do not start the vehicle.
2. Fully depress the gas pedal slowly three times within 10 seconds.
3. Without pressing the brake pedal, press the start button one more time to cycle it off.
There is a Drive Dodge app and a Durango app that are pretty good. I can not find the Durango app anymore on the playstore, but it shows up in my history and I have been able to download it on new devices. It is a shame because it was a 2011 Durango app that has more complete and better info that when you pick Durango from the Drive Dodge app.

Hmm, that is odd. Like I said I can go to my playstore download history and down load it (just did on my new tablet) but other than my history it appear to be nonexistent. ..

Scroll through the instrument cluster display with the up/down buttons on the left side of your steering wheel. When you get to "Vehicle Info", select with the center button and scroll up/down again until you see the "Oil Life Remaining" info.

If you are at 6K, you have about 4K until your next oil change.
