Vehicle kept flooding out and would not start over a month period in October of 2005. Taken to a garage to be fixed. The computer showed no problem. After getting it started vehicle would be taken home and same problem repeated itself. After 3 trip to garage for same problem the vehicles PCM(engine control computer) has been replaced. Dealer advised that vehicle was 7000 miles over the 80000 mile warranty on that particular part. This vehicle has had problem after problem. From exhaust problems to timing chain assemblers failure to power door locks going out. I can not believe that chrylser was not aware of some of the problems in the 200 Dodge Durango.
