Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • 36,380 miles
Our 2000 Dodge Durango with just over 36,000 miles blew on a trip out of town leaving us stranded. The factory warranty had just expired. The extended warranty people came down and are trying to blame it on us, saying we didn't change the oil enough, (that's ridiculous) we did change the oil, but even if we hadn't it shouldn't make the engine blow, it might make it run like crap, it wasn't really doing that either. After researching on the internet, I found many other people who had the same problem, it turns out it is a part in the oil pump that should have been recalled in 98,99, and 2000 models before they extended the factory warranty in later models. Do they really expect people with these problems to buy a new motor for 6,000, and they don't have to be responsible for any of it!!!! our Durango is still at the dealership, we don't know what to do. Chrysler is trying to ignore us, to trade for a new vehicle, we will lose around 4 thousand dollars and our payments will be more expensive then we can really afford. We still owe $14,000 on that piece of crap. They need to extend the warranty like Volkswagen and Toyota did when they had this problem with some of their models, or do something!!!! thank you.
