TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability and Durability of the Dodge Durango

Dodge Durango Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearComment
We don't yet have enough reliability data for the Dodge Durango, but the refreshed, closely related Jeep Grand Cherokee hasn't been faring well. Blame the new infotainment system, bugs in which apparently can affect everything in the instrument panel. In the tested vehicle, both the audio system and the climate control often behaved oddly. Most likely Chrysler will develop a thorough fix soon. But until then, glitches are likely. Two optional features that were problematic in recent years with the Grand Cherokee, an air suspension and a panoramic sunroof, aren't offered on the Durango. This said, both the Nissan Pathfinder and the Hyundai Sante Fe also required an above average number of repairs in their first model year. Early glitches aren't unique to Dodge. see full Dodge Durango review
