I paid aprx $400 for new tires May 18 2018. On 6/29 on highway I had a blow out. Had to find a walmart in daphne al to get new tire. They said oh maybe from the heat and kept making excuses but bottom line tires were about a month old was no reason that should happened. So we replaced the tire and wouldnt let me keep blown out one for proof. Now past couple weeks thr same tire they replaced has been getting low over and over. Today go out and basically was flat to rim. I go get air and see bubbles from in between treads thanks to ut being wet outside. Come to walmart again and now fight begins because I shouldn't have to pay for a tire a third time obviously they are defective and need recalled! luckiky first time we didn't get hurt or cause accident while doing 70mph on highway. Second time same tire luckily my sister noticed it before we got on highway.

I was told that the upper and lower ball joints needed to be replaced. I have owned many vehicles and never have had so many front end issues on one vehicle than this one. I was wondering if there has been any recalls on the 2 wheel drive Dodge Durango, rear wheel drive. 5.2L engine this vehicle did have a recall issued on the rack and pinion steering.

Upper ball joints failed on my 2000 Dodge Durango with 42,000 miles. This is supposedly a heavy duty truck and has never towed anything nor been offroad. Only light duty commuter duty. This is a very common problem and representative of a design defect. Entire wheel assembly can fall off vehicle while driving.
