I was driving my 2000 Dodge Durango on christmas night when my vehicle start making a noticeable sound. It sounded like I had flat tire or something was stuck in the wheel area. I looked and searched under the vehicle but could not find the cause of the noise. My fiancee, sister and friend were in the vehicle and could not figure out was wrong. We were quite scared and did not know what was wrong. For three days my car made the same until my mechanic was available on Monday, December 29th. The noise was coming from a busted ball joint/bearing. It was very near off collapsing the wheel and front end. What stuck in my mind was the mechanic at the time said, that I was extremely fortunate that I brought my car in when I did because the "whole axle could have broken and fallen off." I was quite scared and relieved, obviously. Well, almost $600 later and I find out that this all coulc have been averted by Dodge notifying car owners.

We own a 2000 Dodge Durango. We experienced vibration in the front and strange noises. Mechanic checked front end of vehicle. Said that front right upper ball joint was defective to the point where it was unsafe to operate. He showed us the abnormal "play" in the front and said the wheel could easily separate from the chassis. He replaced this ball joint, but warned that the other three (consisting of lower and upper ball joints on left side, and lower ball joint on right side) are also bad and will need replacing in the very near future. Also said the universal joints in the rear will need to be replaced in the near future. This is all after we spent more than $200 to replace rear wheel axle bearings.
