Multiple times the truck has just died. Driving down the road no warning. The vehicle runs just fine and starts right back up. Yesterday this happened on the highway and almost caused a major accident. When it dies you loose all power steering and power brakes. It is dangerous and ive found numerous complaints online from Durango owners with the same problem.

Durango 8-cyl

While backing my Dodge Durango onto boat ramp to take a jetski out of the water, I lost all brakes and pedal went to the floor. I used the emergency brake to stop from going in the water. After inspecting the brake lines I noticed they rusted all the way thru and caused all fluid to leak out resulting in complete loss of brakes. A repair station estimated 1500 to 2000 to replace brake lines, and said it is common on Durangos and dakotas due to bad metal lines from factory. They also said brake lines should not rust out like this and it is a safety issue that could result in fatalities with all the affected models still on the road.
