problem #2

Jan 152002

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
Transmission "grabbing" and "slipping" in all gears. Most noticable on the highway. Transmission goes from overdrive to one and sometimes two lower gears at highway speed. Vehilcle will jump and sputter. Vehicle was taken to dealer who did not get it repaired. It was also taken to my local mechanic, who says it's a lemon. (I have no faith in the dealer who sold me the garbage after they claimed to have not figured my fianancing correctly abd hit me with a $975 additional fee.) ellenville Dodge.

Transfer case has gone bad. Dodge missed the diagnosis and sent us back driving until I was able to bring it back in a April (over a month later). We have currently about 75,000 miles on our 2000 Durango. The transfer case went bad unexpectedly and untimely. Our wheels could have locked up while we were driving causing serious injury to us and others.
