I LOVE my car. We wanted a car with the optional 3rd row so we can get around with our kids and their friends. We also have a pop-up camper, and we just bought a boat at the end of the summer that requires extra towing capacity. I was concerned that this would be a "utility" vehicle and not a luxury vehicle - but I was totally wrong! The car rides incredibly smoothly, even when towing. The adaptive cruise control is also smooth, not jerky like most others I've been in. All the "extra" features are wonderful too - I live in Wisconsin so the heated steering wheel is lovely!
I have the 2013 Durango R/T trim, and love it. I have owned it less than a month, so can't speak on the durability. It is a big vehicle, but it really doesn't feel that you are driving a large SUV, drives like a car. The V8 has plenty of power, and has great acceleration. Dodge did a great job with the interior, feels and looks like your driving a luxury vehicle from Germany, they didn't cheap out on anything.
Overall, its an amazing vehicle. The only thing I truly hate about it is the color... I thought it was bright white when I purchased it at night time, the next morning I realized it was an off white color. I'm most likely going to put a wrap on it. But other then that, its fabulous.
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.
