The contact owns a 2000 Dodge Durango. While driving various speeds, the vehicle accelerated and decelerated independently. In addition, the vehicle stalled and was able to be restarted. The vehicle was taken to a dealer and an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the mat sensor, cam sensor, spark plugs, and multiple parts needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure persisted. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 155,000. The VIN was unavailable.

We just got another call on this 2000 Durango apparently the issues are the same for every Dodge Durango from 1999 to 2007 vehicle stalls at any speed at any time any where wet or dry common problem on all Durangos and no easy fix or solutions not even from Chrysler we americans are wondering when you will issue a safety recall on this particular brand model and years or will you just ignore this email until someone's stalls on the 70 -75 miles per hour fast lane of the highway with there kids or loved ones and is killed ?? come NHTSA this is a very serious matter.

Durango 8-cyl

  • 160,000 miles
The vehicle started making a loud humming noise in the rear end coming from the rear differential at around 30 mph, and gets loud while increasing speed. Dealership wants $1200 just to install a new one, price does not reflect the $2500 rear differential. Widespread problem, and no action I being taken. Obviously a flaw on there end, the car has not been beat and in pristine condition. Called about this problem, only for them to tell me the warranty expired 10 years ago, obviously but everyone's warranty expired and are helpless because of a problem arose by them.

Winding sound in steering when tuning wheel, horible sound while turning wheels and backing up, door locks are in locked position (can't open to get out of car and loud sound going off when door locks are supposed to self lock at 25 mph)bought car in 2001, after 6 mo took car to dearership to report problems while still under warranty and they said nothing was wrong. Still have paperwork to show of the complaints.I have 3 small grandchildren I take care of and Transport in the vehicle. Hope you people do something about this before someone dies or you will really be out of pocket. I have less that 60,000 miles on SUV so this can't be due to wear and tear. ( I marked oem yes if that pertains to original parts on SUV).
