Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles
The galt fire protection district has 2 Dodge Durango's 4X4. During an inspection of the brakes, it was discovered the brake line on the front left wheel was rubbing the chassis. The metal brake line near the caliper was worn more then half way through the wall of the brake line. Upon inspecting the other side it was discovered the right front brake line was also worn. I inspected the other Dodge Durango and discovered it was also wearing in the same place. Failure of the front brake hydraulic system will reduce the vehicle's braking ability as much as 70%. in my professional judgment, this problem is worthy of a formal investigation and a recall, if others Dodge DurangoS are found with this problem. The galt fire protection district's affected vehicles are as follows: [xxx] with 36,101 miles and [xxx] with 42,888 miles thank you [xxx] fire mechanic galt fire protection district.

Durango 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,468 miles
The brake line to the front driver's side wheel cylinder is directly under the battery. This line does not have any kind of protective shielding to prevent battery acid residue from depositing on the line. I have had this line, and the battery, replaced once by the dealer at 26468 miles. Now the dealer does not want to replace the brake line again at 36500 miles. This is being blamed on a faulty battery, that would be prorated. They say corrosion on the brake line is not a problem. It seems like potential brake line failure is a hazard to me. My wife drives this vehicle daily and this is the good family car. I've never had a vehicle that did not have a shield of some type under the battery to prevent this type of corrosion.
