We needed a vehicle that could pull our 19' pleasure boat. We preferred an 8 cylinder due to that requirement alone. It has plenty of power when needed, but we are lucky if we get 11 mpg in the city, but that was our choice with the 8 cylinder engine. We purchased the Durango after speaking to our son who has worked as an auto mechanic for over 25 years. He works for a Dodge dealer in Georgia, and said it was a great vehicle. The seats are very comfortable and we love the front seat warmers with the leather package. The only down side to seating comfort is that the rear seats will not recline. Makes for a long trip if riding in the back. The third row of seats will fold under and lay flat in the very back. We have chosen to leave them that way so as to utilize the extended rear storage. We drove round trip from Oklahoma to Northern California without a single problem or concern for my family of four. I did however notice that it seems to be light and drifts when really windy. We had a Tom-Tom GPS system installed and the installer said it was one of the easiest automotive installs he has ever done, and he has been installing Audio & GPS equipment for over 12 years. We purchased a five-year extended warranty with the vehicle six months ago and have yet to use it. I do, however miss my automatic headlights and automatic dimmers, as this model has neither. All in all.... A Great Aotomobile.

Had the vehicle a little over a month now and I love it. It looks and preforms great. Only wish the back hatch glass portion of the gate opened instead of being one big hatch dooor. Other than that its great.

Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
