problem #3

Feb 162006

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles
One several occasions (more than 3) the vehicle has shut off completely in the roadway with no warning. The fuel seems to be in a vapor lock or the fuel pump is not pumping correctly. There is currently a recall on the 2005 Durango for the exact same problem. I feel this may be the same issue related to my vehicle. The mechanic who evaluated the vehicle stated this was the problem and these vehicles were known to have this problem throughout several years.

Since ownership of the vehicle two engines were replaced. Front end had been realigned on at least two occasions due to excessive wear on the tires. Also, fuel pump had been replaced twice.

I have had my 2000 Durango in to the dealership (when it was under warranty) for spongy, loose, pulsing braking, noise from the suspension, & a chirping/squeaking sound (alternator like) when it is cold outside. The suspension noise was corrected with new spacers in the leaf springs (which they admitted were a problem). I was told that the pulsing in the brake pedal was normal for the Durango & not to worry about it. They did a balance & told me it took care of the problem. It didn't. they could not "duplicate" the chirping (after 2-3 visits) although it happens for me every day. Now we are out of warranty after reading many of the complaints for the same problems here, I'm just waiting for something to happen. Will my children be injured as a result? this vehicle has 32K miles which are 99% highway is in cherry condtion. I've decided to take it to a private mechanic (Napa) & pay for his opinion on the rotors, ball joints, arms, brakes, water pump/alternator, etc. Once I've paid for his opinion, how do we get Dodge to pay for the repairs...since they won't own up to any of the problems. Is there going to be a recall on the rotor/brake problem or the ball joint/arm problem? my brakes usually last at least 60K miles & I have never had problems with suspension on any of my new cars. Then, I'm getting rid of it.
