I bought a new Dodge Durango in 2000 and despite taking good care of it I have had several problems. The first problem were the safty belts coming unclipped for no reason and then sticking open so they couldn't be reclipped. The middle seats the middle seats to not always latch completely down after being folded up, the headlight switch in the steering column has a short in it causing the headlights to go out while I am driving at night. I had to bring it in because the engine light came on and was informed that there was a defective part that the dealership had been notified in a bulletin. They replaced the part, but charged me for the labor. The latest problem is a power stearing problem that the dealership informed me that because of a leaky seal I have to replace the entire rack and pinion for almost $900. I feel that this is absurd on a car that is only 3 years old.

The seatbelts in our 2000 Dodge Durango in the row behind the driver become unbuckled at will and sometimes they don't want to latch. The children ride in that row. I now moved them to the third row but I don't trust those either. What is going on? you have to push down on the child car seat to tighten it and even when it latches, it will come undone at some point during the drive. It is outrageous that a car should have that particular defect. My 11-year old Toyota Celica had working seatbelts until the end!
