The NHTSA gave the Dodge Durango a rating of four out of five stars overall, with the lowest individual score being a three-star rating for the rollover test for AWD variants; RWD models have a four-star rollover rating. At the IIHS, there's no 2023 review of the Dodge Durango just yet. Last year's model received "good" reviews in most categories but scored a "marginal" rating in the small overlap front driver's side crash. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and Ford Explorer received better ratings.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.

According to existing owners, the Durango is a pleasing car to own. The 2022 model scored 80 out of a possible 100 points in the J.D. Power Ownership Survey, including a specific 81/100 score for quality and reliability. Despite this, there have been a few recalls in the last few years. The 2021 model was recalled for an airbag problem, as well as for a rear spoiler that may detach while driving. 2022 models have been recalled twice, while 2023 Durangos are recall-free.
The Durango is sold with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Roadside assistance also runs for five years or 60,000 miles.
