Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,200 miles
2000 Dodge Durango. On two occasions I had my Durango in for premature balljoints. The left upper and lower had to be replaced and then the right and left tie rods. I was told that the tierods should have been replaced when the balljoint was replaced. I only had approximately 40,000 miles on my car when they were replaced. I had to pay $150 plus a car rental for this repair which took two days because the dealer didn't have the parts in stock.
