2017 Dodge Durango Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Dodge's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Dodge? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Durango is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Durango's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Dodge Durango’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Dodge. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
