2015 Dodge Durango Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
The three-row Durango SUV is another impressive example of Chrysler's resurgence. While previous Durangos were rather mediocre, this one is a luxurious, refined, and capable SUV that rates at the top of its category. Too bad a history of lackluster reliability gives pause. The Durango, which shares a platform with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, does an impressive job of combining workhorse utility with ample creature comforts.

"Handles like a car - I don’t feel like I’m in a large SUV. It covers smoothlty and accelerates very smoothly."

Anonymous, MN (2015 Dodge Durango)

"For a V6, acceleration is more than acceptable. The car is a joy to drive and very comfortable for long hauls."

Dino H., IN (2015 Dodge Durango)

"For a bigger SUV, the suspension is tight and it corners as well as a smaller SUV. Quick acceleration helps with passing, especially 2 cars. Don't have to wait for car to get up to passing speed."

J K., NJ (2015 Dodge Durango)

DOUGLAS G., IL (2015 Dodge Durango)

"Very comfortable on long drives for driver and passengers. Lots of room... excellent UConnect system"

Anonymous, VA (2015 Dodge Durango)

"Climate control does not match our past experience with Ford vehicles. The auto setting does NOT usually result in adequate cooling and we frequently have to tinker with the fan setting and manually turn on the air conditioning. In contrast, we never had to touch any of the controls in either our 2002 Ford Explirer ir 2006 Ford Freestyle if the climate control was set to auto."

TIMOTHY N., MN (2015 Dodge Durango)

"The seats are 8 or 10 way adjustable,not sure what to count, but are very comfortable. Climate control system cools @ heats without seeming to struggle and does it"s job quietly. The vehicle is very quiet while driving (I find myself speeding often). The ride is more firm than my previous car(300 M) but definitely not harsh."

DAVID E., WI (2015 Dodge Durango)

"Comfortable seats on long trips, Little road noise. The ride is smooth and car absorbs most bumps. Greatest on highway cruising."

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Fantastic SUV for the money. Ride comfort, high performance engine, cabin trim, seat comfort and the U-Connect entertainment system make this vehicle well worth the price paid."

Michael A., GA (2015 Dodge Durango)

"I love this automobile"

Anonymous, MO (2015 Dodge Durango)

"This is my second Durango and I feel it's a great value compared to some of the competition."

EUGENE M., AZ (2015 Dodge Durango)

"New 2015 model purchased in May 2016. The discount from MSRP was substantial compared to the discount on 2016 models. The discount on 2016 models make the Durango a better value than Highlanders and Pilots, and yes I do understand that it will depreciate faster in a few years than the 2 Japanese models."

Anonymous, MN (2015 Dodge Durango)

"We looked all of the SUVs and trucks that would pull our camper and felt they were all too large and expensive until we looked at the Durango. It got great mileage, looked good, was very comfortable, and was $15000-20000 less than any of their others that would do the job."

SHARON H., WI (2015 Dodge Durango)

"Great option for 7 passenger vehicles and a very reasonable price, especially when compared to other large SUV's"

NICHOLAS H., MD (2015 Dodge Durango)

"I was maneuvered into a bait & switch on the vehicle on the purchase. I bargained for a four wheel drive & ended up with a two wheel drive. The dealership was CJD of Jacksonville, FL at 11101 Nursery Fields Drive 32256"

WAYNE M., FL (2015 Dodge Durango)

"Fully loaded Citadel for $41,500"

JOE K., NJ (2015 Dodge Durango)

RICHARD S., MA (2015 Dodge Durango)

VERNON H., TX (2015 Dodge Durango)

"Car looks fine, but the roof pillars are so wide that they seriously obscure vision- perhaps dangerously so."

BILL J., MD (2015 Dodge Durango)
