    Well this is my 3rd Hemi powered vehicle and the other 2 I did the same thing and dropped the break-in oil between 1000 and 1500 miles and never had an issue, at 5k on any of my new cars I start running Mobil-1 full synthetic, my Ram has 109k on it and runs like a top and never had any engine issues (except a rusted out oil pan) my Charger RT I drove like I stole it and that was perfect till I traded it in for this '14 Durango RT, so far this thing had the trim at the defroster ducts replaced(it was popping up when dash got hot) smokes on start up (sometimes) has exhaust smell in cabin after accelerating then decelerating (mostly at highway speeds) and the rear struts are clunking (mostly on left side) other than that she's Cherry.... ; ) have an appt on 6/4 with dealer and I was told they have a level 3 Tech that will road test it with me when I get there. lets see where that goes....I will post a follow up as soon as I get some input from the dealer and super-tech.......
    Thanks for your input Guys.....

    2014 Durango Limited AWD - W/Hemi V-8
    We just purchased a brand new Durango Limited AWD with the Hemi V-8 and at about 2000 miles it started doing exactly what you described. On start up either cold or hot, I get a large plume of grayish white smoke. It's just that initial blast at start up and then it idles perfectly. No issues otherwise. Have an appointment at the dealer this coming Monday 6/30 to get it looked at. I can't accept that as normal behavior for any engine to do that. I'll let you know what happens.....
